Microdermabrasion in Miami, FL
Average Cost: From $1,600
Microdermabrasion offers results similar to a chemical peel with a shorter treatment that improves the appearance and the complexion. Over time, the skin may become dull or damaged from exposure to the elements and everyday wear and tear. Dr. Maercks can help enrich your life and improve your appearance with a microdermabrasion treatment that leaves your skin youthful and smooth.
During the procedure, Dr. Maercks uses gentle abrasion and light suction to the skin to remove dead skin cells, exposing newer, youthful looking skin quickly. This treatment is fairly simple and requires no downtime for recovery. With a very low risk of side effects, microdermabrasion is ideal for those who want to improve their complexion quickly.
Are You a Candidate?
Ideal candidates for microdermabrasion are those who deal with the following conditions:
- Dull complexion
- Uneven skin texture
- Mild photodamage
Microdermabrasion is perfect for those who want to see fast results in a better complexion, but don’t have the time for the recovery of a medium depth peel or laser treatment.
Dr. Maercks takes each case on an individual basis, and can discuss with you if you are a candidate for this valuable procedure.
What to Expect
As the skin is gently pulled into a hand piece, crystals work the outer layers of the skin to remove dead skin cells. The device is passed over the skin, neck and chest by the physician, and the suction device removes the dead skin cells and crystals.
The procedure is comfortable and virtually pain-free, although every individual reacts differently to treatments.
There is no downtime required after a microdermabrasion treatment, and you can return to normal life almost immediately. The abrasive mechanism of the device is very gentle to the skin, so you may not notice dramatic results after just one treatment. Most patients require a series of treatments that create a noticeable difference in the complexion. Mild post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is the most common side effect after treatment.
