Revitalize Your Appearance in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Radiant. Glowing. Healthy. These are the words frequently used to describe youthful skin. Unfortunately, those qualities tend to fade as dead skin cells accumulate over time, giving the entire face a dull look and serving as a "home" for lines, wrinkles, and scars.

Microdermabrasion treatments can help Grand Rapids, Birmingham, and Detroit area patients quickly and safely correct these superficial skin problems by uncovering a smoother, more radiant complexion.

At our Med Spa in Grand Rapids microdermabrasion can safely improve the look and texture of your skin, leaving you with a youthful glow. For your treatment, one of our medically trained licensed aestheticians will use a precision instrument to evenly spray a stream of superfine crystals onto your face, gently exfoliating your top layer of skin and removing tiny particles of damaged, dead cells. Depending on your skin type and individual goals, multiple treatments over several weeks may be necessary to obtain optimal results.

What Is Microdermabrasion?

Just as gently sanding and polishing a table can restore a warmth and shine to the wood, using superfine crystals to loosen dead skin cells that are then vacuumed away can make a face appear brighter and more radiant. The microdermabrasion device combines these two actions, both emitting the crystals and suctioning them up again, along with the freed debris.

Microdermabrasion not only reveals fresher skin, but it also stimulates blood flow and encourages improved skin health. The treatment can take 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the areas being addressed.

Microdermabrasion Basics:

  • superfine crystals "polish" away dead skin cells
  • the treatment is generally well-tolerated
  • downtime after a session is minimal
  • repeat treatments may be required to achieve ideal results
  • reduces signs of aging and sun damage, as well as opens pores
  • can be combined with other treatment strategies

Who Is a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?

Adults who can benefit from microdermabrasion include women and men who want to minimize visual imperfections in the skin and achieve a more youthful look. A session or series of sessions can treat any of the following:

  • acne
  • fine lines
  • wrinkles
  • scars
  • pigmentation irregularities


What Can You Expect Following Your Microdermabrasion Treatment in Grand Rapids?

After microdermabrasion Grand Rapids patients will likely have pink skin for an hour or longer after a session. Redness and swelling may also be visible and take a few hours to resolve. Bruising due to the device's suction pull to remove the spent crystals and dead skin cells can cause slight bruising that will fade over the course of a couple of days. Note that your skin may be sensitive for several days, and sunscreen should be worn—like always—when going outside to maintain skin health and beauty.

Since every person's skin is unique, results will develop differently for different patients. Some may find that one treatment every eight weeks is enough to maintain the vibrant look they are going for. Others may choose weekly treatments for a month in order to maximize their more dramatic results. Skin regeneration happens roughly once a month, so microdermabrasion treatments should be scheduled regularly for anyone who wants their radiant, more youthful look to continue long-term. Routinely removing dead skin cells can create an ongoing positive impact on skin health.
