Microdermabrasion

Refresh Your Look with Microdermabrasion

When you look in the mirror, do you see dull, lackluster skin? Do you suffer from uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation (brown spots) and fine lines on the face?

If your facial skin could use some refreshing, Bulan Plastic Surgery in Northern New Jersey has just the cosmetic treatment for you! Microdermabrasion is a quick, easy and, best of all, painless way to get softer, smoother skin for a glowing appearance.

What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical, noninvasive cosmetic treatment designed to refresh and restore the appearance of your skin. During microdermabrasion treatment, Linda, the Certified Plastic Surgery Nurse at Bulan Plastic Surgery, runs a diamond-tip handheld device over the surface of your face, gently scuffing the skin’s surface. She then uses a controlled vacuum mechanism to remove the dead and sun-damaged skin cells, revealing smoother, more vibrant-looking skin.

Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective alternative to more invasive skin resurfacing methods, such as laser skin resurfacing treatment or chemical peels. In addition, microdermabrasion is a painless procedure that requires no downtime.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion improves the look of facial skin in two ways. First, it stimulates blood circulation. The increased circulation activates the skin’s collagen, a protein essential for healthy skin. An improvement in the body’s production of collagen leads to better skin texture and tone over time. Secondly, the thorough exfoliation provided by the treatment lightens darkly pigmented spots, helps rid skin of fine lines, improves the look of acne scars, aids the treatment of acne and improves the look of new, pink-colored stretch marks.

What to Expect During Treatment

Linda customizes her cosmetic treatment plans to fit your unique skincare needs. She first applies a cleansing toner to the skin to eliminate excess oils that may diminish the aesthetic effects of microdermabrasion. Linda then employs the diamond-tip device, gently “blasting” away dead skin cells and other impurities. Following the microdermabrasion procedure, Linda applies a soothing re-hydrating mask to the skin, as well as copper and sun block. The entire process takes about 45 minutes, and leaves skin feeling supple and younger looking.

Results After Microdermabrasion

You may notice that the treated area is warm and appears slightly pink following treatment, but these mild symptoms should subside within a day. Although you may see immediate benefits after one microdermabrasion treatment, we recommend a series of six to eight treatments for optimum results. Multiple treatments keep pores free from dead skin cells and other impurities, and continue to stimulate the body’s production of new collagen over time.

Visible results vary from person to person, depending on each individual’s skin tone, age and overall health of skin. However, Bulan Plastic Surgery patients are generally thrilled with how well microdermabrasion refreshes facial skin!
