What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion uses a minimally abrasive instrument to remove, or “sand” away, your skin’s uneven, thicker outer layer. Think of it as an advanced exfoliation process. If you suffer from light scarring, sun damage, skin discoloration, or stretch marks, this procedure might be the solution you’re looking for.
How does it work?
Microdermabrasion is designed to help thicken the body’s collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies and it gives our skin its elasticity and strength. Unfortunately, as we age, our collagen levels deplete and our skin appears loose and uneven. The minimally abrasive instrument that we use at La Follette OB-GYN & Aesthetics has a diamond-tipped wand that will suction and remove the top layer of your skin. With this top layer removed, your skin cells will react to create new skin growth.
