Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-chemical treatment that is effective for reducing the prominence of wrinkles, fine lines, light acne scars, and other minor discolorations that appear on the skin over time. It is an effective alternative for individuals who do not have enough time to undergo laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, or other more invasive treatments.
Microdermabrasion uses microcrystal technology to exfoliate layers of dead and damaged skin cells, revealing a healthier underlying layer of skin. The treatment also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, contributing to smoother and healthier skin texture. During the procedure, Dr. Gallegos uses a handheld device that applies small crystals to the skin to remove damaged skin cells. Each session lasts for approximately 30 minutes, and multiple treatments may be necessary for optimal results. For more information on microdermabrasion, contact Dr. Gallegos today.
