This is a non-invasive, non-chemical treatment that is effective for reducing the prominence of wrinkles, fine lines, light acne scars, and other minor discolorations that appear on the skin over time. It is an effective alternative for individuals who do not have enough time to undergo laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, or other more invasive treatments.
Other skin procedures, such as dermabrasion, can cause days or weeks of downtime. However, the microdermabrasion procedure allows patients to immediately return to a normal routine. The procedure is painless and delivers visible results without any side effects. This procedure is excellent for eliminating blackheads or whiteheads for clearer, cleaner pores.
The treatment uses microcrystal technology to exfoliate layers of dead and damaged skin cells, revealing a healthier underlying layer of skin. The treatment also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, contributing to smoother and healthier skin texture. The procedure takes only an hour or two with no downtown. The results are typically impressive and can give your skin a healthy glow. During the procedure Dr. Gallegos uses a handheld device that applies small crystals to the skin to remove damaged skin cells. Each session lasts for approximately 30 minutes. Multiple treatments may be necessary for optimal results. For more information about this medispa procedure please contact Dr. Gallegos today.
