Microdermabrasion with serum infusion - your new best friend?

Spring is right around the corner.  And you know what that means? It’s time to unbundle those winter layers and start afresh.  If you're concerned that the dry winter air has gotten the best of your skin, we invite you to consider one of dermatology’s most sought-after procedures: microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion quite literally removes the dull, top layer of your skin to reveal healthier, glowing and fresh skin underneath.  Consider it a deep exfoliation, ideal for any of the following conditions:

What makes microdermabrasion so appealing is that it’s quick, painless, and easy.  In as little as 20 minutes, it can leave your skin feeling soft and your complexion with a healthy glow. An added benefit is that there’s no downtime. While it may leave your skin with mild redness for roughly 15 minutes following the procedure due to increased circulation, you can go back to your normal life immediately. 

Plus, it’s safe and effective for all skin types, and its flexible options allows your treatment to be tailored to your individual needs.

How is microdermabrasion done?

The original technique of microdermabrasion involved the use of loose crystal particles to exfoliate the skin. This technique is now outdated, and has been replaced by the gentler diamond microdermabrasion, which utilizes a wand with a diamond tip to lightly abrade the skin and remove dead, dull skin cells.  

At Eternal Dermatlogy, we combine the gentle exfoliation of the diamond wand with simultaneous infusion into the skin, of regenerative serums targeted to your specfic needs. In this process, when our specialized handpiece comes into contact with the skin, controlled suction is activated, which extracts clogged pores and impurities, exfoliates dead skin cells, and, at the same time, uses pressure to infuse the skin with ingredient-rich serums. This simultaneous exfoliation and serum infusion ensure optimal skin receptivity to the serums. 

How does microdermabrasion work? 

The science behind this is real: microdermabrasion’s gentle exfoliation rejuvenates skin by stimulating collagen production and blood circulation. This, in turn, improves your skin’s elasticity and texture, leaving your skin softer, more youthful and with a more balanced complexion.

What are my options to microdermabrasion?

At Eternal Dematolgoy, we also offer our signature "Hydroderm" treatment. This treatment differs from traditional diamond tip microdermabrasion in that the treatment wand is smooth, so that there is the absolute minimal irriation to the skin, and the treatment is more focused on cleansing the pores with simultaneous serum infusion and the exfoliation is acheived through the suction mechanism, with minimal friction to the skin. This is particularly useful for individuals with active acne, for whom spreading of bacteria, infection or inflammation may be a concern. It is also a favorite for people looking to achieve their "Eternal Glow" for an upcoming event like a big date, a wedding or simply a night out.

Is microdermabrasion a one-time thing? 

This treatment provides powerful results, but it is typically not a treatment that you only use one time. To get the best results, most people undergo a series of treatment sessions that are usually spaced 3-6 weeks apart. Once you reach your desired results, you may want to have touch-up treatments performed every so often as a way of maintaining best results.

So, are you in?

If you’re interested in seeing if microdermabrasion is right from you, contact Eternal Dermatology today.  At Eternal Dermatology, our pledge is simple – in order to provide uncompromising quality in patient care, you’ll always be treated by a highly-skilled, board-certified dermatologist.
