Microdermabrasion at Young Medical Spa
Microdermabrasion at Young Medical Spa® is a no-downtime, non-invasive treatment to reveal smoother, brighter skin. The DiamondTip™ technology gently removes the outermost layer of skin cells, wiping away dead and dull skin and revealing fresh skin all without gritty sand particles.
Microdermabrasion is effective for improving the appearance of skin on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, or back. Each treatment area has a specially designed tip that increases collagen production in the skin for a healthier, more youthful look that continues to last with the use of medical-grade skin care products at home.
As the skin rejuvenates, other treatments like photofacials or laser skin resurfacing can become more effective, as the dead skin is already removed allowing for more impressive results with combination treatments. Unveil the healthy and vibrant skin below the surface with microdermabrasion at Young Medical Spa.
Dermaplaning at Young Medical Spa
For a soothing and even milder exfoliation of your skin, Young Medical Spa® also offers dermaplaning in our Lehigh Valley office. Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion, but without the use of suction or crystals. A sterile, single-use blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently remove dead skin cells from the epidermis. Dermaplaning also temporarily removes the fine vellus (peach fuzz) hair of the face, leaving skin as smooth as silk. As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows skin care products to penetrate more effectively, providing a more radiant skin tone and more even application of makeup.
Dermaplaning can be an effective exfoliation method for those who have sensitive skin or allergies that prevent the use of microdermabrasion or chemical peels, or can also be used in combination with chemical peels or photofacials for a more effective treatment. This non-invasive treatment is often described as a soothing facial treatment that offers immediate results.
Frequently Asked Questions about Microdermabrasion at Young Medical Spa
How does microdermabrasion work?
Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates, and removes with suction, the outermost layer of the skin. As the dead skin cells are lightly removed, the skin underneath has a chance to grow. Damage from the sun as well as some signs of aging and scarring are reduced, and collagen production increases for a fully refreshed look.
Is there any downtime associated with microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a gentle treatment that only results in slight redness. There is no required downtime and symptoms should dissipate on their own after a few hours.
What kind of results should I expect?
Microdermabrasion provides exfoliation of the outermost layers of the skin for a brighter, more refreshed look. When combined with other treatments, optimal results in improving skin tone, texture, and appearance can be achieved.
