If you run your hands over your face, does your skin feel soft and smooth or rough like sandpaper? If rough, the top layer of your skin may be inundated with dead skin cells that are making your complexion dull and uneven. At Summerlin Dermatology in Las Vegas, NV, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Reuel Aspacio offers cosmetic services like noninvasive skin resurfacing with microdermabrasion. Fast and effective, microdermabrasion treatments remove the outer layer of dead and damaged skin, so your complexion is brighter and healthier. At Summerlin Dermatology, not only do we have the particle-free microdermabrasion, but we also have the HydraFacial® MD, which is a variation of microdermabrasion with an added infusion of peeling agents and antioxidants. This procedure can be used alone or with another cosmetic treatment, like a dermal filler or chemical peel, for more dramatic improvements. During your consultation, Dr. Aspacio will create a unique treatment plan for your specific skin concerns and cosmetic goals.
"I was referred by a friend to Summerlin Dermatology over three years ago. Between Dr.Aspacio's candid feedback and sharp work, Trish's connection to all her patients, attention to detail and honesty. The experience starts with the front office staff and how super kind they are to their patients. They work fast, efficient and always professional. They go that extra mile to make me feel comfortable and welcome each time I see them. I can speak to the following services: microdermabrasion, Sculptra, Radiesse, and Dysport. All done with expertise! I will not go anywhere else for my dermatology needs!"- A.L. / Yelp / Feb 25, 2020
Microdermabrasion Ideal Candidates
Microdermabrasion treatments can improve the appearance of surface skin blemishes including uneven texture, dull skin tone, fine lines, clogged pores, sun damage, and scars. It is safe for people of all skin tone and type that want healthier, clearer skin. These treatments are most often performed on the face, but it can also benefit your hands, neck, and chest. This procedure should not be performed on skin that has an open wound or if you have a chronic condition, like severe acne or rosacea.
Microdermabrasion Procedure Technique
Microdermabrasion treatments are performed in our office after a thorough consultation to determine what services will provide your best results. For the treatment, you will relax in a comfortable chair as your skin is cleaned and prepared. The microdermabrasion handpiece will pass over your skin as the tool both polishes and vacuums the crystals and dead skin. While the treatment feels odd, it should not be painful, so you wouldn't need a numbing cream or local anesthesia. The microdermabrasion will be applied evenly over the chosen areas, with more care and sensitivity around the eyes. Once the treatment is complete, the skin will be lightly cleansed to remove any residue before a moisturizer, selected for your skin type with sun protection, is applied.
What to Expect with Microdermabrasion
After a microdermabrasion treatment, you can resume your normal activities as long as you wear sunscreen or another form of sun protection since your skin will be sensitive. Your face should feel smoother and your tone should be brighter and more even. To maintain your results, Dr. Aspacio recommends getting these procedures every 4 – 6 weeks. Many Summerlin Dermatology patients notice that after microdermabrasion treatments, their home skin care products (especially lotions and creams) absorb more easily into their skin for better results.
