Microdermabrasion has helped hundreds of people improve their skin tone. Anyone who has fine lines, uneven skin tone, sun damage or a desire to have a cleaner, clearer, healthier complexion can benefit from this procedure.
“A friend gave me a gift certificate for a free MegaPeel. I was nervous at first—not sure if I’d be embarrassed to leave the office after having it done. But my skin felt great—so clean and refreshed—and it only left my face slightly pink!” —G.U. (age 29)
About the Procedure
This procedure is performed by an esthetician in the office using the MegaPeel microdermabrasion device. During treatment, this machine propels fine crystals against the skin to remove the dead outer surface. At the same time, a vacuum removes the excess crystals from the skin’s surface. Your microdermabrasion procedure at our Frederick office takes only minutes.
There is no recovery time needed following microdermabrasion. The skin will be slightly red for anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours, but not so red that it is embarrassing to be seen in public places. The procedure can be performed during a lunch break or on the way home from work for a minimum of inconvenience.
A series of MegaPeels will improve: scarring, fine lines, moderate wrinkles, pigmentation problems and uneven tones, dull, lifeless and sun damaged skin. Our Frederick microdermabrasion patients can enjoy a healthy new look with improved skin color. We often combine a MegaPeel with our other skin restoration programs for added benefits.
- If I do a number of microdermabrasion treatments, will this be as effective as having laser resurfacing done?
No. The mega peel only removes layers of dead skin cells. The laser, in contrast, removes both dead and live skin cells to repair the skin. The laser also has the biphasic effect of remodeling the collagen in the deeper layers of the skin.
- Is microdermabrasion safe?
Yes. The crystals that are propelled against the skin are not recycled. They are vacuumed into a separate, sealed compartment and are discarded. The tips that are used during the treatment are sterilized and changed with each application. There is no chance of contamination from one client to another.
