Microdermabrasion in Pittsburgh, PA

Refresh Your Complexion

If you are dissatisfied with a dull, uneven complexion, you may benefit from Microdermabrasion at the Pittsburgh Center for Plastic Surgery in Pittsburgh, PA. This non-invasive treatment can improve your complexion by removing dead cells from the top layer of your skin. While some patients may see exceptional results from just one treatment, those with more extensive skin damage may benefit more from a series of treatments.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that removes damaged outer layers of skin to reveal healthier skin below the surface. Ideally, patients are left with skin that is improved in tone, color, and texture. As a bonus, the exfoliation process also stimulates collagen production, which is an integral part of a firm, rejuvenated appearance. We typically target this treatment to the skin on the face and neck, but in certain cases, we may recommend it for the hands and chest, as well.*

Microdermabrasion vs Microneedling

Microdermabrasion and microneedling are both skin rejuvenation treatments, but they differ in their mechanisms and intensity. Microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin's surface using a diamond-tipped wand or crystals, while microneedling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin with fine needles to stimulate collagen production. Both treatments can improve skin texture, tone, and appearance, but Microdermabrasion is non-surgical and typically requires no downtime, while microneedling may involve some redness and swelling post-treatment.

Consultation and Preparation

During your consultation for microdermabrasion Pittsburgh licensed medical aestheticians will evaluate your skin, discuss your treatment goals, and recommend a personalized treatment plan. To prepare for treatment, patients should avoid sun exposure and certain skincare products, such as retinoids, for a few days prior to treatment. It's also important to inform your provider of any medications or skin conditions you have.

What to Expect at Your Appointment

At our rejuvenation center in Pittsburgh Microdermabrasion offers a non-surgical solution to damaged skin. Patients typically need anywhere between 5 to 12 sessions to achieve their desired results. Each appointment is spaced apart every one to two weeks so that your skin has a chance to heal.

Many of our patients enjoy significant rejuvenation from their Microdermabrasion sessions, taking advantage of healthier skin and increased self-confidence.

An individual session usually takes about 30 minutes to 60 minutes. To begin your Microdermabrasion, one of our licensed medical aestheticians will first clean the skin to remove any oil or debris. The Microdermabrasion device will then be applied to exfoliate the top layer of skin and clear out the pores. Patients typically describe the exfoliation process as a warm sensation with little to no discomfort.*

After Your

You should be able to see a noticeable change in your skin almost immediately after treatment. Because Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure, patients typically require no downtime. In fact, many patients return to work immediately after their treatment session. While your skin may feel slightly wind-burned and appear slightly pink or reddened, it should fade after a few hours or by the next day.* However, it is important to protect your skin from sun exposure immediately after your appointment to ensure the best results. Patients should also keep their recently treated skin as clean and moisturized as possible.
