While new technology and advancements in dermatology and skin care continue to evolve with more effective treatments every day, microdermabrasion remains one of the few tried and true facial treatments offering radiant results for patients of all ages and most skin types. Microdermabrasion boasts a long list of benefits that are not only visibly apparent immediately after treatment, but also continue to compound over time with various spaced sessions. This article will be delving into the benefits of microdermabrasion, proving its long lasting superiority.

Safe and Gentle

“SilkPeel” Microdermabrasion is a powerful yet gentle treatment that works to safely exfoliate the skin while delivering a combination of essential vitamins and serums that are quickly absorbed and utilized. For patients resistant to chemical facial peels, microdermabrasion proves a phenomenal option. The small handheld pen-like probe safely exfoliates via a diamond head and suction to rid the surface of its dead skin cells. Patients often comment that the treatment is incredibly comfortable and in most cases relaxing!


Let’s get into the major benefits of microdermabrasion. The treatment works to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, as well as visible signs of sun damage; lessens the appearance and formation of whiteheads and blackheads; addresses pigmentation, tone and texture; as well resurfaces the skin for a smoother, more radiant complexion. The diamond head also works gently to improve blood circulation while leaving the skin more effectively able to absorb the benefits of premium grade skin care products.


While many facial treatments seem to follow a single method utilized for all patients, microdermabrasion is best used by a medically-trained specialist with sufficient experience and history having performed microdermabrasion. According to the patient’s skin type, the specialist will customize the combination of serums and vitamins to the patient and any skin concerns so that they get the most out of their “SilkPeel” microdermabrasion. Once the outer most layer of dead skin is removed, the skin is better able to utilize and absorb the applied vitamins and serums which work quickly to revitalize the skin and address specific skin concerns.

No Downtime

While some more invasive (yet still effective) facial treatments may require patients to take time off work or skip social events, microdermabrasion offers no downtime as patients are able to return to their busy schedules. Patients may find that their skin looks flushed due to increased circulation, however this greatly subsides within the next 1-2 hours depending on the patient’s skin type. Patients often find that microdermabrasion is fairly easy to fit into their schedules as it provides the benefits without taking too much time out of their daily routines and responsibilities.

Benefits Beyond The Treatment

While patients will certainly see some benefit immediately after treatment, the true benefits of microdermabrasion compound over time, especially after undergoing a series of treatments. “SilkPeel” Microdermabrasion works by not only delivering essential nutrients to the skin alongside gentle exfoliation—it subtly encourages the skin and body to increase it’s production of collagen, which is responsible for creating the anti-aging benefits that build over time. Collagen building is not done over night, but with evenly spaced sessions of microdermabrasion, patients will notice marked improvement of their skin each time they come in for treatment. For added benefit, patients with little to no skin concerns continue to receive microdermabrasion treatments to maintain their radiant complexion and continue carrying forward the treatment’s well-documented anti-aging benefits.
