Microdermabrasion is a minimally abrasive skin refinishing treatment that exfoliates your skin with a gentle sanding device, removing the outer layer with its many impurities, dead cells, and surface imperfections. At New Visage, we provide microdermabrasion along with several other facial spa treatments for our clients in the Morehead and Jacksonville areas of North Carolina.

For a gentle exfoliation that provides moderate skin rejuvenation, consider microdermabrasion. This gentle treatment imparts radiance and luminosity to your skin by uncovering healthy and vibrant new skin cells while promoting the production of collagen and elastin to improve your skin’s overall tone and texture.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating treatment that reduces outer skin layers to reveal softer, more youthful skin underneath. This treatment can address a variety of skin concerns, including hyperpigmentation, sun damage, shallow acne scarring, and fine lines. The procedure stimulates cell regeneration for a vibrant appearance. Microdermabrasion may be used alone or in combination with another skin treatment to enhance results.

How does Microdermabrasion work?

Microdermabrasion treatments use an instrument with a rotating head to gently sand away the outer layer of your skin, revealing a new healthy layer of vibrant skin cells. This treatment causes your skin’s natural protective instincts to be triggered, and results may increase in collagen and elastin, natural substances in skin cells that help your skin become firmer and more supple.

What does Microdermabrasion treat?

Microdermabrasion may be used to treat any surface skin condition but is most often used to treat light scarring, uneven skin tone, sun damage, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, enlarged pores, and acne.

What is the procedure link?

Microdermabrasion is not painful, and feels like a relaxing facial massage. The instrument used to sand away the outer layer of skin works gently so you won’t experience any discomfort. The procedure takes about 30 minutes to an hour and you can resume normal activities immediately.

Are there any risks?

Microdermabrasion makes your skin more susceptible to sun damage, so we recommend that you take extra care to protect your skin from the sun after a microdermabrasion treatment to prevent UV rays from damaging your sensitive new layer of skin.

What kind of results can I expect from Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion helps trigger collagen production, which firms your skin and produces a smoother, younger-looking complexion. Results might be visible immediately, and you will notice increased radiance and luminance in your skin, as well as a smoother texture, more even color, and a reduction in visible surface imperfections.
