Centrally located in Southampton and serving Philadelphia, Bucks, and Montgomery Counties, the Kole Plastic Surgery Center performs microdermabrasion for patients desiring skin rejuvenation.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure to remove the outermost layers of skin to improve the surface texture and create a soft feel and appearance. With dermabrasion, a dermatologist or plastic surgeon “sands” your skin with a special instrument. This procedure reveals a new, smoother layer of skin to replace the dull and lifeless skin covering it.
Microdermabrasion uses tiny exfoliating crystals that are sprayed on the skin. It works best on problems such as dull skin, brown spots, and age spots, as well as mild to moderate acne. A handpiece expels crystals that contact the skin. These crystals are then vacuumed. This smoothes the outermost layers of skin. The procedure time depends on how large of an area needs to be treated. During your consultation, you and Dr. Edward S. Kole will discuss whether dermabrasion or a chemical peel may help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?
If you have minor skin imperfections, such as rough skin, uneven skin tone, or fine lines from sun damage, then microdermabrasion may be the right choice for you. Microdermabrasion removes scars from acne or other procedures, as well as refinishes and smoothes the skin. Microdermabrasion also can improve acne scars, pox marks, and scars from accidents or disease. Microdermabrasion is not effective in treating congenital skin defects, moles, pigmented birthmarks, or scars caused by burns.
Microdermabrasion works on all skin types and colors, making subtle changes and causing no skin color change or scarring. It doesn’t require surgery or anesthetics, which is useful for those who cannot take any downtime for recovery.
