Microdermabrasion is an in-office treatment that removes the outer layer of dead skin cells. The procedure using a gentle mechanical abrasion in combination with suction. The treatment itself is not painful and takes only fifteen minutes in the office. There is no downtime after microdermabrasion; you may experience mild redness after the treatment, but all patients return to their office or social obligations.
Immediately after the treatment, your skin will look brighter and more radiant. A series of microdermabrasion treatments will help to reduce the appearance of discoloration, mild acne scarring and even fine lines. Microderm treatments help to unclog congested pores and improve the appearance of dull skin. All microdermabrasion treatments are performed at the Boston Acne Specialists by a licensed esthetician.
