Get Ready for Valentine's Day With Microdermabrasion

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and what better way to put your best face forward than with a rejuvenating microdermabrasion treatment? At The Med Spa at Matthews Internal Medicine, we provide microdermabrasion treatments to help you get the glowing results you desire for your skin.

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a unique, minimally invasive skin procedure that produces a renewed look to your overall skin tone and texture. The treatment involves removing your top layer of skin with a specialized tool that gently sands your skin’s surface and eliminates the uneven outer layer.

As you age, your body produces less collagen — a protein found in your skin that produces a taut and smooth look — resulting in looser and uneven skin. Microdermasion enhances and thickens the collagen, which helps to promote younger-looking, revitalized skin. 

Microdermabrasion is considered safe for patients of varying skin types and colors. We pride ourselves in providing a top-of-the-line, clean, and comfortable facility to ensure your microdermabrasion treatment is effective and lives up to your high standards.

Signs that microdermabrasion is right for you

You should consider microdermabrasion is your skin suffers from:

Microdermabrasion is typically performed on your face and neck. However, we can perform the procedure on other parts of your body as well.

Preparing for a microdermabrasion treatment

Because microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical and relatively simple procedure, there isn’t much preparation work you need to do for your treatment. And there’s no downtime to plan for following the procedure, either.

Prior to your treatment, you meet with a member of our team to discuss your skin conditions and the outcome you hope to achieve through microdermabrasion. Our team discusses past cosmetic procedures you may have had and also asks about any existing medical conditions or allergies. 

We recommend you avoid sun exposure, certain types of skin creams, and waxing treatments for about a week prior to your microdermabrasion procedure. The day of your treatment, we remove any makeup, oil, or dirt before the procedure begins.

If you want a fresher, younger-looking face for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day and you’re interested in the results that microdermabrasion can provide, call us today or schedule an appointment online for a consultation with one of our team members.
