Introduction to Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion has become a very popular and sought-after non-surgical cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. It is safe and effective, while also being gentle on your skin. If you are looking for a non-invasive method for beautiful and long-lasting skin rejuvenation, Soma Plastic Surgery’s Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion in Lake Mary, just half an hour north of Orlando, is the right choice for you.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion is a modern and effective exfoliating treatment, which uses a diamond-tipped wand to gently remove dead skin cells. Dead skin cells are suctioned off while the negative pressure boosts blood circulation and stimulates cell regeneration. Excess hardened skin is removed in the process, allowing the active ingredients to get to work. By combining the procedure with one of our spa treatments, your skin will benefit greatly from the additional moisture and other active ingredients.

What are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?

By removing the hardened skin layer (the “corneum”), Microdermabrasion reduces impurities caused by clogged pores. You will also notice an immediate firming effect from the vacuum massage. Microdermabrasion helps to refine your skin, reducing the size of pores, all while stimulating cell reproduction – an essential part of healthy skin.

Who are the Best Candidates for Microdermabrasion Procedure?

There are very few cases where diamond microdermabrasion is not recommended. It is generally an ideal treatment for promoting healthy skin regeneration for most people. It is particularly recommended for:

  • Acne & Blackheads
  • Blemished or oily skin, or with enlarged pores
  • Prevention or counteraction of premature wrinkles
  • Treatment of light scarring

If you are unsure of whether you are a good fit for microdermabrasion, we recommend calling the clinic to speak with our friendly staff about your personal needs.

What’s the First Step?

The first step in the process is your initial consultation. During your consultation with Dr. Papanicolaou, he will listen to your specific concerns to provide you with an evaluation to help you achieve the results you desire based on your goals, lifestyle, and unique anatomy. We treat every patient with the care they deserve and ensure the process is as smooth and comfortable as possible.

What to Expect on the Day of Microdermabrasion

On the day of your appointment, the procedure will take 45 mins to 1 hour total.

  • The First step: The cleansing process to remove your skin from any excess impurities.
  • The Second step: Exfoliation, which will warm up the skin to stimulate the lymphatic system.
  • The Third step: “Raking” using the machine with the diamond tip wand to remove dry, dead skin cells. This step may be repeated a number of times depending on the density and texture of your skin.
  • The Final step: Optional but highly recommended, a treatment mask to moisturize and seal your skin. This step allows time for the skin to relax and soak in the treatment, while also giving us the chance to ensure there are no adverse reactions to the microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion Recovery

The 24 hours after the microdermabrasion procedure is the best time to relax and give your skin time to heal and adjust to the treatment. We recommend staying out of the sun and avoiding applying any unnecessary skin products, so you can ensure your skin has time to soak up all the nourishing ingredients from the procedure.

It is also important to drink plenty of water for additional hydration, which can also aid in flushing out excess toxins in the skin. You will begin to feel a big difference in the softness of your skin within this recovery period, and you can resume normal activity within 24 hours. Some patients may feel some minor irritation or itchiness after microdermabrasion. This is completely normal and will subside within 24-48 hours.

It is very rare to experience extreme adverse reactions from microdermabrasion; however, if you do, call us right away and we can advise you on the best course of treatment.
