Much like everything else, over time our ability to exfoliate our skin begins to lessen. This causes many people to have a gradual buildup of dead skin cells which can create a rough external layer over your newer skin cells. Unfortunately, as your ability to naturally exfoliate decreases, this layer may linger on until it becomes excessively rough and stubborn. For these situations, a procedure such as microdermabrasion can be the perfect counter to wash away that roughness and reveal a more softer, youthful you underneath!
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure in which a rough tool is used to “sand” the skin so that these tough, hardened layers of skin can be removed. You would be amazed at how much dead skin cells can gather on the surface of your skin, leaving you looking dull. Many men don’t realize it, but when you shave every day, they’re actually exfoliating that part of their skin by continually shaving that top layer of skin every day.
Because it is an abrasive procedure, microdermabrasion can be used for milder forms of age spots, blackheads, acne, and related scarring, as well as issues with hyperpigmentation. However, if you have greater issues with those skin conditions, there may be more specialized procedures that can help you more specifically. Book a consultation with us to discuss what procedures might be best for you!
If the procedure sounds familiar to you, it’s because there is a more intensive procedure called dermabrasion that takes these steps even further. Unlike microdermabrasion, regular dermabrasion is more akin to a surgical procedure in terms of recovery. It often requires anesthesia and the healing process can be very uncomfortable as the skin becomes pink and swollen with burning and tingling sensations. Still, it is an effective procedure that can produce dramatic results. However, we find that many people can benefit greatly from microdermabrasion and they can forego most of the painful parts.
How Does a HydraFacial Help With Microdermabrasion?
All abrasive treatments will leave your skin somewhat tender depending on the intensity of the treatment. At The Herschthal Practice, we have our own comprehensive modality on what constitutes excellent treatment. We call it the TR3+ process, and microdermabrasion is a part of that process. The most important but understated part of TR3+ is the plus, which denotes that having a good skincare regimen after receiving any kind of treatment (or in general) is a crucial part of preventing age-related wear. Not just that, but after you receive a treatment with us at The Herschthal Practice, we always recommend a personalized skincare regimen to you so that you can maintain the results of that treatment as much as possible until your next session.
On that note, the HydraFacial is one of those treatments that can improve the effectiveness of microdermabrasion. Because it is an abrasive procedure, it can leave your skin feeling sensitive as well as in need of additional restoration. This is exactly why the HydraFacial treatment, along with microdermabrasion, is the perfect one-two punch combo that will deliver phenomenal results.
The HydraFacial will add back nutrients such as antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides that are vital to your skin’s nourishment. The best part is that the HydraFacial causes no pain or discomfort requires only about 30 minutes of your time, and requires no downtime.
How Much Do Microdermabrasion and HydraFacial cost?
We strongly believe in treating people on a case by case basis—not a rulebook. This means that cost varies from patient to patient depending on many different factors. Book an appointment for a consultation with us and we will gladly openly discuss the cost of any procedure with you so that we can keep treatment both affordable and accessible. We take all major credit cards and offer financing through CareCredit.
