Microdermabrasion in Royal Oak, MI
Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive method for refreshing or rejuvenating the skin that is suitable for practically all skin colors and types. Microdermabrasion, also called a "power peel" or "lunch-hour peel", is a gentle exfoliation technique. Microdermabrasion benefits the skin because it helps stimulate collagen growth, a protein in the skin that declines with age. Penn dermatologists provide microdermabrasion as a cosmetic skin enhancement service to treat:
- Discolored skin
- Dry or flaky skin
- Light scarring
- Sun damaged skin
What to Expect During Microdermabrasion
At Koger Dermatology, the dermatologist or nurse sprays a light solution on the skin and uses a special hand-held instrument to "sand" or "polish" the skin and remove the top layer that may be mildly scarred, uneven, discolored or sun damaged.
Microdermabrasion does not require advance preparation. Our patients are carefully examined by a dermatologist or nurse for the best and most effective microdermabrasion approach.
You will not have discomfort or experience "downtime" with this procedure. The use of moisturizers and sunscreen are highly As people age, various changes occur to the deeper layers of the skin that may result in wrinkles and volume depletion, especially around the cheeks, temples, lips, and under the eyes.
