Every person has his or her own unique skin concerns. In the Tampa office of Dr. Lombardi, we create solutions for the individual. In many cases, microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment all on its own. It is, however, safe and gentle enough to be combined with other rejuvenating procedures.
Microdermabrasion has become increasingly popular due to its being non-invasive. You can enjoy the benefits of renewed and lively skin without the hassle of surgery or long recovery periods. When performed by a top dermatologist in Tampa, the treatment can rejuvenate your appearance and improve your confidence in your skin.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is what many people call a “lunchtime treatment.” The mild resurfacing we perform takes under an hour to complete. Though so brief, it leaves the skin with a significant healthy, vibrant glow that can make you feel years younger. You do not need to worry about going under anesthesia or dealing with any interruptions to your daily routine.
Our precision instrument sends a stream of fine particles toward the skin, where they remove dead and damaged cells that cover the surface. These particles, along with removed cells, are immediately suctioned away from the skin. Skin that has been treated with microdermabrasion reflects light in a more uniform manner leading to that desirable glow.
A Treatment That Matches Your Skin Needs
Like chemical peels and other treatments performed in our office, microdermabrasion is fully customizable through adjustments to our handpiece. Your skin type and sensitivity are both taken into consideration when developing your personalized treatment.
Depending on your needs, we will set our device to the setting that best suits your skin. For some patients, a gentle buff and polish will be best. For others, a stronger stream that achieves deeper exfoliation will produce results that match their goals. During your consultation, we will go over what options will provide you with results that match your goals.
As dermabrasion is non-invasive, you do not need to worry about downtime after the treatment. From the time you leave our office, you will be able to return back to your usual routine. Howe ver, there are certain precautions we provide you to ensure optimal results.
After a short treatment, the skin may look slightly pink, but it will not look red or swollen as it might with aggressive resurfacing. More thorough abrasion may have redness and swelling, but these soon fade.
After treatment, you are advised to protect the treated area. This includes keeping your skin moisturized and avoiding direct sunlight. We will provide you with a full list of instructions for helping your skin get the most out of this treatment.
Is Microdermabrasion Right for You?
Microdermabrasion can be ideal for people of all ages. Men and women who want conservative treatments that are very comfortable, convenient, and affordable will appreciate what this procedure can do. Using precise techniques, we can perform microdermabrasion to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, minor scarring, blotchiness, mild acne, and fine lines.
Patients who choose rejuvenation with microdermabrasion get to see an immediate improvement in the way their skin glows. With subsequent treatments, the skin will continue to improve in tone and texture. Light lines and wrinkles may smooth away. Depending on your ultimate goal, we will schedule a number of treatments and suggest other therapies suited to your goals. One significant advantage of dermabrasion is that it works well when combined with other treatments.
Common reasons to have dermabrasion treatment include:
- Fine lines or wrinkles in various areas
- Uneven skin pigmentation
- Blackheads, acne, and enlarged pores
- Acne Scars
- Skin that has lost its sheen
