About Microdermabrasion

When you touch your face, does your complexion feel smooth and soft or rough? If rough, the outer skin layer may be covered with dead and damaged skin cells that make your complexion uneven and dull. At Neem Medical Spa in Boston, MA, board-certified internal medicine physician Dr. Rosy Sandhu performs medical spa services like microdermabrasion for superior exfoliation for a refreshed look. Microdermabrasion removes the surface layer of damaged skin so your face is healthier and brighter. The procedure reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, enlarged pores, and stretch marks. It may be performed on its own or along with another service, such as a chemical peel or dermal filler, for greater results. At your initial consultation, Dr. Sandhu will come up with a personalized treatment plan to fit your needs and complexion goals. Neem Medical Spa serves residents in the greater Boston area (Somerville, Lynnfield, and Winchester, MA) by providing luxury medical spa services utilizing only the latest technologies. Our skilled professionals deliver customized treatments to meet your specific skin care needs. To schedule a consultation with our staff, contact us today.

Ideal Candidates

Microdermabrasion sessions may minimize the look of blemishes on the skin's surface like uneven texture, fine lines, dull skin tone, scars, sun damage, and clogged pores. It is safe and effective for women and men of every skin type and tone that would like clearer, healthier skin. These treatments are usually used on the face, although it may also be great for your chest, neck, and hands. This procedure shouldn't be used on skin with an open wound or a chronic skin condition, such as rosacea or acne.

Treatment Technique

Microdermabrasion is completed at our office following your consultation to decide what skin care procedures will give you the best results. A microdermabrasion procedure lasts around 35 – 45 minutes, depending on the specifics of your treatment. During the treatment, you will be asked to lie back in a treatment chair as your face is prepared. The microdermabrasion tool will pass over your skin as it exfoliates and sucks up the debris. Minute mineral crystals are utilized to exfoliate the skin’s exterior keratin layer, refining skin irregularities. Although the process may feel unusual, it not considered uncomfortable, so you shouldn't need a local anesthetic or numbing cream. The microdermabrasion treatment will be performed evenly in the needed areas, but with extra caution on the delicate skin around the eyes. As soon as the process is over, your skin will be cleaned to get rid of any residual debris before a moisturizer, chosen for your skin's needs with UV protection, is massaged in.

What to Expect

Following your microdermabrasion procedure, you may get back to your regular routine, but you need to apply some form of sun protection since your baby-like skin will be susceptible to sun damage. The treated areas will feel softer and the tone will look brighter. To prolong the benefits, Dr. Sandhu suggests scheduling a microdermabrasion treatment once every 4 – 6 weeks. Some Neem Medical Spa patients feel that after treatments, the skin care products they use at home (particularly moisturizers) soak easily into the skin for more effective results.
