Remarkable Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Woman Receiving Microdermabrasion Treatment Atlanta GA

How much do you know about microdermabrasion? Do you know that it is one of the most gentle, fast and non-invasive anti-aging treatments available? Microdermabrasion is more than a facial but not as harsh as a chemical peel. It is a facial treatment designed to remove dead skin cells and essentially “resurface” your complexion to reveal a healthier and more youthful appearance.

First developed in 1985, microdermabrasion involves a mechanical wand-like device that exfoliates the stratum corneum (outermost layer) of dead skin cells using tiny crystals. The skin interprets this as a minor injury, so it triggers your system to produce new healthier skin cells.

The microdermabrasion device includes a compressor and simultaneous vacuum feature that is gently swept across the face in a circular motion. The entire procedure can be performed within half an hour or less, but multiple treatments are sometimes needed to achieve ideal results. As far as results, you can claim a softer, smoother and more even complexion with this simple microdermabrasion procedure.

If you are still on the fence about getting a microdermabrasion or you aren’t sure if you’d really be a candidate, consider these remarkable benefits:

  • A “lunch-hour” procedure
  • Diminishes fine lines, wrinkles, shallow acne scars
  • Minimizes large pores
  • Reduce appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, age spots and other forms of sun damage
  • Allows skincare products to penetrate up to 50% better
  • Helps make-up go on smoother
  • Improves skin elasticity and texture
  • Stimulates better nutrient-rich blood flow to skin
  • Safer, less downtime and more cost-effective than laser treatment or chemical peels

Other Facts You Should Know About Microdermabrasion

The best microdermabrasion results are seen in people in the early stages of aging, between 35 and 50. Keep in mind that microdermabrasion can temporarily remove moisture from your skin so be prepared to hydrate your skin with a rich moisturizer afterwards. In addition, you will want to stay out of the sun after a microdermabrasion, as those new skin cells will be extra sensitive to sunlight. Lastly, if you have skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, active sunburn, herpes, lupus, open sores, psoriasis, fragile capillaries or widespread acne, microdermabrasion may not be recommended.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
