What is microdermabrasion? Joel Schlessinger MD answers.

Most people are looking for a spa treatment that reveals a youthful, radiant complexion without taking up a lot of their valuable time. Microdermabrasion meets both of these requirements and is becoming a popular choice among spa-goers. In this post, Joel Schlessinger MD explains how this procedure works and why this treatment can be beneficial for your complexion.

Microdermabrasion uses microscopic crystals to exfoliate the complexion. This process removes the outer layer of skin to encourage cell rejuvenation and create a more youthful appearance.

Joel Schlessinger MD reveals the numerous benefits of this procedure.

Patients who undergo this treatment can expect a reduction in the appearance of outward signs of aging including fine lines and dark spots. After just one treatment, the skin texture appears smoother and softer. This procedure is safe for all skin types and tones because it is non-invasive and does not cause scarring or discoloration.

You can receive a microdermabrasion treatment at the spa or in the comfort of your own home. An in-office procedure lasts only a few minutes and produces minimal skin irritation. After the treatment, apply a lightweight moisturizer and a broad spectrum sunscreen to protect the delicate skin.

Instead of an in-office treatment, try these at-home products recommended by Joel Schlessinger MD.

At-home microdermabrasion exfoliators can be used two to three times a week to rejuvenate skin and renew the complexion. LovelySkin Micro-Buff Crème helps fade signs of damage for a more youthful appearance. Another top-selling product is Clinicians Complex Microdermabrasion Cream. This scrub works on all skin types including acne-prone complexions, to eliminate dulling debris and unclog pores.
