Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that uses a special applicator with an abrasive surface to gently exfoliate and sand away the outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it. The exfoliation works to remove dead skin cells and reveal a new layer of skin underneath. The new skin cells are smoother and less wrinkled.

What To Expect During The Microdermabrasion Treatment?
Microdermabrasion is a type of treatment that uses a special wand and a vacuum to gently remove surface skin. During your microdermabrasion treatment, your aesthetician will apply a special polishing lotion to the surface of your skin. Then, they will pass a handheld device that sprays tiny crystals across the surface of your skin multiple times to exfoliate any dead skin cells. This process is repeated over the entire surface of your skin to remove the upper layer of dead skin cells and to polish and rejuvenate your appearance. Often, microdermabrasion is combined with chemical peels as a more powerful form of exfoliation.
After your treatment, your skin may feel sensitive, but it should calm down within a couple of days. Your skin may also feel dry and appear red or pink. Avoid sun exposure, and apply sunscreen and moisturizer to your skin until your skin feels back to normal.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a gentle, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that removes the superficial layer of dead skin cells to reveal the healthy skin underneath. This abrasive treatment reveals younger, healthier skin cells giving the face a radiant glow without any downtime. By stimulating skin cell turnover and rejuvenation, the procedure results in smooth, supple, healthy, clear, and glowing skin.
Microdermabrasion is usually performed on the face but can also be done on the chest, neck, arms, and hands. It removes dead skin cells and dislodges any dirt in your pores. The procedure is painless and takes about 30 minutes. There is no downtime, and patients can return to work the same day. At Dr. Alicia Abeyta's practice, we offer Diamonds of the Earth Microdermabrasion at $120 or $598 for a series of 6 sessions.
