04 Dec Get Holiday-Ready Skin with Microdermabrasion
Can’t get enough of a good thing? Spectrum Dermatology offers a variety of skin resurfacing procedures, including microdermabrasion. This light removal of dead skin is different than eMatrix or laser skin resurfacing. You can get microdermabrasion many times, and with a minimal downtime and immediate results, it’s the perfect pre-party procedure. Most people have heard of microdermabrasion, but if you’ve never enjoyed it before you might be wondering exactly what it is, what it does, and how it’s different than other procedures.
Microdermabrasion is a special, comprehensive type of exfoliation to remove the top layer of dead, dry skin cells. Using a machine, the skin is buffed and polished with a constant stream of very fine crystals. At Spectrum Dermatology, we use a diamond tip to optimize results and provide the youngest-looking, dewiest skin possible. As the skin is being polished, a small vacuum is “cleaning up” the loose skin cells.
Who is Microdermabrasion For?
Microdermabrasion can help anyone looking for more beautiful skin. It can help with clogged pores, uneven pigmentation, and even fine lines. Melasma patients and those taking Retin-A often qualify for microdermabrasion, too. Talk with your dermatologist. If you’ve been told you’re not a good candidate for other skin resurfacing treatments due to conditions or medications, microdermabrasion might be the breakthrough procedure for you.
Microdermabrasion goes deeper, yet safely, than any exfoliation treatment you’ve tried at home. Using dermatological devices, patients experience the benefits of stronger motors, more power, and the ability to get deeper into the skin for targeted exfoliation. However, an at-home exfoliation might help with microdermabrasion “upkeep” between appointments.
But I’ve Seen Microdermabrasion at Spas. What’s the Difference?
Some spas without licensed dermatologists offer microdermabrasion. They also might offer Botox, Dysport, and many other procedures. However, do you want to trust your face with anything short of a medical professional? At Spectrum Dermatology, you know that the diamond tome wands used in microdermabrasion are properly sterilized after each use, just like surgical instruments.

Only your dermatologist can determine the best microdermabrasion schedule for you based on your goals and skin. However, many patients stick to a two-month schedule. Microdermabrasion is also a fantastic procedure for a special event, such as a holiday party.
