Microdermabrasion in Cincinnati, Ohio
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic technique that improves the tone and texture of your skin while being safe and minimally invasive. It’s an effective treatment for a variety of skin problems, including wrinkles and scars. At Moksha Dermatology in Cincinnati, Ohio, we’re glad to provide it to our patients.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates the skin. It works by removing damaged skin cells from the skin’s surface so that new, healthy skin cells can take their place. It gives the skin a brighter, smoother, and more revitalized appearance.
It also boosts collagen formation, which helps to restore skin’s youthful appearance. As we age, our skin generates less collagen, resulting in skin that is less homogeneous in tone and texture.
Microdermabrasion can be done in two different ways. The first method involves using an applicator with an abrasive tip to exfoliate the skin’s outer layer. A spray of aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate is used in the other approach. For the same exfoliating action, a vacuum or suction is employed in conjunction with the spray.
What Can Microdermabrasion Treat?
It can be used to treat a range of skin problems, such as:
- signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots
- sun damage
- acne, acne scars, and blackheads
- stretch marks and enlarged pores
- uneven skin tone
- rough skin or uneven texture
What Can I Expect?
In our Cincinnati office, microdermabrasion will be performed. This technique takes around an hour to complete and does not require anesthetic or numbing of the area. After you’ve finished exfoliating with the spray or the applicator, you’ll apply a moisturizer and sunscreen to protect your skin.
Microdermabrasion has the advantage of allowing you to resume your normal activities immediately after treatment. Because your skin will be extra-sensitive following the treatment, you’ll be encouraged to use only light products on it. To avoid sun damage, it’s also important to use sunscreen and restrict sun exposure following the treatment.
Immediate improvement is usual after treatment. It’s possible that you’ll need many sessions to treat all of your skin issues. Microdermabrasion is a treatment option at Moksha Dermatology in Cincinnati, Ohio, for a variety of common skin issues. Make an appointment with us today to see whether it’s the best fit for you.
