Portland Microdermabrasion Treatment
A Portland microdermabrasion treatment may sound uncomfortable, but it’s a minimally abrasive procedure that gently sands down your skin and removes the outer layer. The purpose of having microdermabrasion is to treat scarring, sun damage, stretch marks and discoloration. If you have been thinking about having a Portland microdermabrasion procedure done on your skin, the first step is schedule a consultation with us. We want to make sure that you are a good candidate for this procedure!
What Can a Microdermabrasion Treatment Do?
A Portland microdermabrasion treatment can do wonders! We love it because it doesn’t use any chemicals. Instead, microcrystals are used to sand down the skin and reveal healthier, younger looking skin underneath. This layer of skin not only has an improved appearance but also has more collagen and elastin.
Here are some of the things that a microdermabrasion procedure in Portland OR can do.
- Reduce age spots
- Reduce patches of darkened skin
- Exfoliate the skin
- Decrease stretch marks
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Eliminate large pores
- Treat acne and acne scars
- Treat rosacea
What Makes a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion Treatment in Portland OR?
During our consultation, we’ll get to know you and your goals for healthy, rejuvenated skin. Some people are better candidates than others, so we will look for things such as:
- The severity of the scars
- Your physical health
- Your expectations
- Whether your acne is active
- Whether you’ve had recent chemical peels or collagen injections
A Portland microdermabrasion procedure is best for light scarring and not deep depressions. If you have these types of scars and are looking for a more effective solution, we may recommend something stronger such as a chemical peel, laser skin resurfacing or dermabrasion.
