What is Microdermabrasion in Rochester?

Microdermabrasion is a type of noninvasive skin rejuvenation that is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, stretch marks, and more. Microdermabrasion uses a small massaging instrument to physically exfoliate the skin by removing the dead and damaged skin on surface layers. The instrument also stimulates collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a protein in your skin that is abundant during your youth and creates a plump and smooth appearance.

How Microdermabrasion works

Non-invasive procedure

Microdermabrasion in Rochester is a non-invasive procedure. It uses a small instrument that works and feels like a strong electric toothbrush to exfoliate layers of skin. It enhances new layers in a comfortable, relaxed way without needles, lasers, or knives.

Safe, Quick & Simple

Each microdermabrasion treatment takes around 30 minutes to perform. To reach the fullest effect, many individuals receive around four treatments to obtain ideal, smooth skin. Before your procedure, you will want to bring sunscreen with you as your skin will be extra sensitive for a bit after. The efficient and effective procedure will allow your skin to feel smooth and refreshed.

Complimented by Chemical Peels

If you want to feel thoroughly exfoliated and clean, we can combine your microdermabrasion in Rochester with a chemical peel. The microdermabrasion physically exfoliates the skin to break down the dead skin cells, while the chemical peel dissolves the oils and debris and other “glue” that’s holding on to the dead skin, making both treatments more effective.

What cause uneven skin tone?

Everyone’s skin is different, so the cause of someone’s uneven skin tone can vary from person to person. At Envision Aesthetics, we understand that uniqueness and work hard to cater our microdermabrasion techniques in Rochester to best fit your skin.

Microdermabrasion fights against uneven skin tones using a handheld device that sheds away the outer layer of skin. After your procedure, you’ll notice the benefits right away. You’ll have clearer, smoother skin that’ll help you appear more youthful and rejuvenated.

Hormones
As with many skin problems, your hormones play a part in uneven skin. Due to the change in hormone levels, pregnant women tend to find themselves suffering from brown and gray spots called melasma. Skin changes can also occur when women start or stop birth control. In addition, taking hormone replacement therapy may influence the occurrence of hyperpigmentation and spots.

Sun exposure
Many of our clients find that conditions such as melasma are worse in the summer and calm down during the winter months. Sun rays are damaging to the skin, which can cause brown spots to flair up on your face. It also causes your skin to age more quickly, especially if you’re not applying SPF on a daily basis. After a while, our skin is unable to hide the negative impact the sun has on our skin, and wrinkles and hyperpigmentation begin to emerge.

Genetics
Unfortunately, sometimes an uneven skin tone completely out of your control. Genetics are a major factor when it comes to the development of dark spots, wrinkles, and even stretch marks. If you have close relatives who suffer from those conditions, you’re more likely to get them yourself.

Finding a treatment for uneven skin can be frustrating since there’s a lot of misinformation about where it stems from. Fortunately, microdermabrasion in Rochester is designed to fight against hyperpigmentation and uneven skin to give you clear and smooth skin.

Microdermabrasion versus dermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical procedure that is minimally invasive. Using a special applicator, the procedure gently exfoliates the outer layer of skin to reveal a fresher, more rejuvenated appearance. 

On the other hand, dermabrasion is a more intense option to shed layers of the skin. Usually this is done by dermatologists. Dermabrasion is recommended for deep acne scarring, scars from accidents or surgeries, and tattoo removal. In addition, dermabrasion is only good on fair skin, while microdermabrasion in Rochester works for all skin tones and skin types. 

Can I do Microdermabrasion at home?

Although there are various options for at-home microdermabrasion, none of them compare to getting the procedure done at a professional medspa. Our microdermabrasion devices at Envision Aesthetics have larger motors and more power to deeply penetrate the skin to give you fast, noticeable results. Anything done at home will be a very surface-level treatment similar to using an exfoliating cleanser. 

We always tell our clients that unlike home methods, microdermasion at Envision Aesthetics can fix skin problems such as:

-Fine lines and wrinkles
-Hyperpigmentation
-Enlarged pores
-Acne and acne scars
-Stretch marks
-Dull complexion
-Uneven skin tone and texture
-Melasma
-Sun damage
