No matter how much we try, we cannot prevent the visual symptoms of skin aging. What was once radiant, evenly toned skin now shows dark spots, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. The causes are many and include sun and wind exposure in St. Petersburg, FL, gravity, changes in skin chemistry as we age, and a decrease in the amount of collagen present in the skin. Microdermabrasion is a simple means to revitalize dull facial skin.
Microdermabrasion is performed by removing the epidermal layer. This stimulates rapid creation of replacement tissue, and this new skin will be healthier than what it replaces because of the rush of nutrients sent by the body to create the new cells. In St. Petersburg, FL and the surrounding metro area, adults with skin problems related to aging have found their way to us, and they now enjoy smoother, more youthful skin thanks to our specialized microdermabrasion procedure.
Candidates for Microdermabrasion
The ideal candidate will be a mature adult in overall good health and whose skin problems are not symptoms of a serious medical condition. Hyperpigmentation and other patches of darkened skin, age spots, liver spots, injury scars, enlarged pores, and acne scarring can all be treated with microdermabrasion. We want to consult with the client first so that we can examine these trouble spots and determine whether replacement epidermis will effectively minimize the appearance of discolorations.
Those experiencing age-related fine-line wrinkles and crow’s feet near the mouth and eyes can also benefit from microdermabrasion. The removal of epidermis, which signals the body to quickly develop new skin tissue, also kickstarts a process whereby collagen production increases. This helps diminish the appearance of smile lines.
How We Perform Microdermabrasion
This treatment is performed in the comfort of our office in St. Petersburg, FL. The after-effects are minimal, with reddened skin being the most commonly experienced. The benefits aren’t immediately noticeable because it takes time for the new epidermal layer to form from below. Collagen production will increase over the next month or so. Eventually, the result is smoother skin with less visible non-set wrinkles, freckles, age spots, and smile lines. Results last for quite a while, and repeat treatments are just as effective as the original.
