What is microdermabrasion?

With microdermabrasion, residents of Columbus and central Ohio can experience soft, rejuvenated skin.

Using tiny crystals, this procedure safely and gently removes the outer dead layers of skin, leaving the underlying skin smooth and refreshed. Microdermabrasion also diminishes large unsightly pores and helps to soften fine lines, scars, and acne blemishes.

NEW: XTRAC Laser Services

XTRAC is the only FDA-cleared, clinically proven excimer laser that gets skin clear of psoriasis—and it works fast, with many patients seeing significant improvement and long-lasting remissions. Because XTRAC delivers a highly targeted, therapeutic beam of UVB light only to areas of the skin affected by psoriasis, healthy skin surrounding the lesions stays that way.

XTRAC clears the symptoms, prolongs the remission and returns skin to a clinically healthy state in record time. All of which means XTRAC delivers consistently predictable results so patients experience more good days of living than bad.

Quick Facts

  • Effective treatment—symptoms reduced generally in 10-12 treatment sessions
  • Long-lasting relief—typically several months free of symptoms”
  • Simple, painless treatment—sessions are very short
  • Relief without messy creams and daily skin care regimen
  • Covered by most major insurance companies, available by Rx


*Results may vary, talk to your doctor about the right treatment protocol for you.

Side Effects/Risks: XTRAC has none of the drawbacks often associated with other psoriasis treatments-such as premature aging of healthy skin, skin thinning, resistance to medication, or potential negative systemic side effects. Some patients, however, experience a reaction similar to sunburn or blistering at the site of the treated area and in some cases, an increase in pigmentation may occur.

What is microdermabrasion?

At Eastside Dermatology, we offer one of the newest skin care techniques to hit the mainstream market, microdermabrasion.  This procedure takes only about 45 minute to an hour and will leave your skin feeling fresh and soft to the touch.  It has also recently been catching on with men, as we have seen them trying it more and more.

What is microdermabrasion?  It is a term that is used for the procedure of applying an enzyme to the skin, and having tiny crystals brush across the skin to buff away the surface layer of the skin.  The skin is made up of two layers called the epidermis and the dermis.  The epidermis is the outermost layer.  It is comprised of dead skin cells on top of another layer of cells that are being growing.  The topmost layer of the epidermis is called the stratum corneum, which protects the lower layers of skin.  It keeps everything but the tiniest molecules from passing through.  This layer is where many skin imperfections take place like wrinkle lines and blemishes, and this is where the microdermabrasion takes place.

The concept of this procedure is that if you break up the stratum corneum layer, the body is alerted and recognizes it as a small injury.  Instantly, your body hurries to replace the lost skin cells with new healthy ones.  When the stratum corneum is gone, the skins surface is greatly enhanced.  With the healing process brining in new cells, your skin will feel healthy and look and feel smoother.  In a lot of cases, the visible skin imperfections are removed like sun damage, wrinkle lines, and blemishes.  Also with this layer gone, lotions and medical creams work better because more of the ingredients can make their way to the lower layers.

Studies suggest that regular microdermabrasion treatments can influence the way the lower layers grow, and also remove deep blemishes over time.  At Eastside Dermatology, we use a special tool that shoots a stream of small crystals onto the skin, and collects the leftover dead skin cells and crystals.  What the vacuum does is pull and raise a small section of skin to work on.  It then creates mild swelling and brings some of the impurities to the top.  It then shoots the stream of crystals across the selected area of skin, and then collects the leftovers.

To visually see how this is done, we have created a video for you to watch.  See it here!

Know the Facts: Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the single most common form of cancer in the United States today. There are many precautions one can take to lower the risks of getting skin cancer.  It is known that prolonged exposure to the sun or indoor tanning can vastly increase the chances of skin cancer.

Summer is right around the corner, and so is the heat and the sun. Use sunblock with both UVA and UVB protection on a daily basis for a great start. Other preventative measures include wearing wide-brimmed hats and protective clothing, and avoiding the sun between the peak intensity hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

One of the most important things you can do to protect yourself from skin cancer is to have your skin checked annually by a dermatologist. All types of skin cancer can be detected early through annual exams and a biopsy.


Types of Skin Cancer


Basal Cell Carcinoma is the most common and least invasive form of skin cancer.  Once diagnosed, this type of cancer can usually be removed surgically under local anesthesia.  Cancerous growths that fit certain criteria – cosmetic location, large size, or recurrent tumor – are best treated with Mohs micrographic surgery.

Squamous Cell Carcinoma, though a more invasive form of skin cancer than basal cell carcinoma, is highly treatable when diagnosed early. This type of skin cancer can also be removed surgically, similar to the removal of basal cell carcinoma.

Malignant Melanoma, though not as common as basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer, is more deadly and is on the rise. There are many subtypes of melanoma, some having a greater likelihood of spreading (metastasizing) to other body sites if not detected early. Once melanoma is diagnosed, a thorough workup is performed and a treatment course is started. All patients with a history of melanoma should have annual skin checks. First degree family members of those with a history of melanoma should also have annual skin checks as there is a genetic component to this form of skin cancer.


The Best Anti-Aging Tips From Around The World

No matter your current age, no one wants to age faster than normal, and you’d like to stay looking young the older you get. The younger you look can also effect the way you act and feel. Knowing that you have younger skin may also give you more confidence, and allow you to be more outgoing and personable.

We know that sometimes it is tough to stay “young” and look and feel the way you did 20 years ago but there are secrets, simple secrets that can allow you to feel even better than you were two decades ago. Below we wanted to list out our favorite anti-aging tips from around the world to keep your skin feeling young and beautiful.


Many teas are high in anti-aging antioxidants. White tea and green tea are rich in an antioxidant known as EGCG, which helps battle wrinkles and helps increase cell turnover. The Chinese mix green tea powder into brewed white tea to create a facemask. Apply this to your face to help fight wrinkles and load your skin with plumping antioxidants.


Start the day off like women in India, with a warm cup of ginger tea. Mix some shredded ginger and honey into some hot water. A cup of this tea is loaded with anti-aging benefits. Honey has natural anti-bacterial properties and helps reduce inflammation. Ginger is rich in an antioxidant called gingerol, which helps protect against collagen breakdown.



It’s well known that our hands are one of the first things that give away our age. The skin on our hands loses its elasticity and fullness. In Mexico, women mix together sugar and lemon juice to create a scrub for the hands. The sugar crystals act as an exfoliant to helping slough away dull dead skin. Lemon juice contains alpha hydroxy acid, found in many anti-aging treatments, which also helps peel away the layer of dead skin cells.


You may have heard of noni juice as a hot, new beauty product that models are raving about. But it’s actually been around for thousands of years, being indigenous to the southeastern part of the globe. Polynesians use the fruit for its moisturizing, anti-aging properties. Studies have shown that it’s effective in softening the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, and wrinkles.



Studies have shown grape seed extract supplements can actually boost the levels of antioxidants in your blood. It has also been known to protect the collagen and elastin in your skin– the proteins that give your skin elasticity and firmness. Grape seed extract supplements are popular in France. You’d have to eat over a pound of grapes to get the same benefit as you do from 50 mg of the supplement!

From all over the world, people have developed their own tips, tricks and techniques for keeping their skin fresh and attractive. Different countries have unique ways for keeping skin in the best condition all while reducing the amount of wrinkles on your body.

Eastside Dermatology & Skin Care Center is a leading Dermatologist in the Columbus, Ohio area specializing in a wide variety of skin care products and procedures.
