Microdermabrasion is a great solution for those who are looking to soften fine lines, scars, acne blemishes, or stretch marks. This procedure uses tiny crystals to safely and gently remove the outer dead layers of skin. This leaves you with the underlying smooth and refreshed skin, which will help your skin look younger.
After your procedure, you might experience some redness or swelling that should go away within a few hours. Some individuals may experience bruising that should go away within a few days. You can expect to have some dryness and/or flaking of the treated area for the next few days as the outer layer begins to sluff off for your new layer to reveal itself.
There is no down time for this procedure, so you can return to normal activities afterwards as long as you use proper sun protection methods. Be sure to check out Eastside Dermatology for all your microdermabrasion needs.
