Microdermabrasion at Drexel Dermatology

Woman getting microdermabrasion.

Drexel Dermatology offers microdermabrasion to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks. The goal of microdermabrasion is to improve skin texture and reduce surface irregularities.

About the Microdermabrasion Procedure

During microdermabrasion at Drexel Dermatology, the skin is gently "sanded" and the top most layer of skin (stratum corneum) is removed. This helps to even out discoloration and creates a smoother, younger-looking skin surface.

There is almost no discomfort in microdermabrasion and there is very little recovery or down time.

Side Effects of Microdermabrasion

Following microdermabrasion, the skin may be flaky and dry for several days. Other possible side effects include bruising that lasts for several days and an increased sensitivity to the sun.

The desired results of microdermabrasion are typically long lasting: however, treatments need to be repeated regularly to maintain the benefits of this procedure.
