What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical treatment that works by gently removing damaged or aging upper layers of skin. These outer layers take the brunt force of aging, sun damage, and anything else life throws at your skin. These factors can leave your skin looking and feeling older or more worn than it should be. Microdermabrasion works to fight against that process by allowing new skin to take its place while also helping your body replenish collagen for firmer, tighter skin overall.
The process involves using a specialized device that gently removes damaged skin cells using a stream of tiny crystals. The device simultaneously vacuums away both these crystals and any damaged skin cells they remove. Patients report the half-hour procedure to be quite comfortable. At most, they say it feels like a light scratching and vibrating sensation at the treated area.

Is Microdermabrasion Right for Me?
Microdermabrasion is an excellent option for patients who want to improve their skin’s appearance without committing to surgery. Even though there is not a single incision, this treatment can still provide impressive rejuvenation, including tightened skin that both looks and feels more taut and smooth. As this treatment is a gentle exfoliation, it is best for patients who wish to treat milder concerns or early-stage wrinkles.
For patients who want a deeper level of exfoliation, we provide additional non-surgical treatments. These include chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing, among others.
To see if this is right for you, you can schedule your consultation with our double board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Lombardi. Based on your goals and situation, he can work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. Our goal is to match you with the ideal procedure that will help you reach your goals.
Is There a Recovery Period?
One of the benefits of microdermabrasion is that there is virtually no recovery or downtime period. The treatment is not only quick, but you can return to your daily routine after your treatment session. Some patients may experience minor sensitivity or flushed skin. However, this will quickly fade. It is entirely normal and just your body responding to the increased circulation as a result of the treatment. In fact, this is a sign the treatment is doing its job! You can even apply certain types of makeup to conceal any redness.
We still recommend avoiding direct or prolonged sun exposure after treatment, as your skin may be more sensitive. For any additional questions or concerns, contact Synergy MD at any point after treatment and we will gladly provide any answers.
When Can I See Results?
Microdermabrasion provides some of the fastest results among our non-surgical treatments. However, it can still take time for your final results to appear as your body responds to the treatment. Some patients might also require more than one treatment session to fully see the results they want.
As your new skin cells grow, the treated area should show improvements. You can also expect some continued improvements as your body responds with additional collagen production. With more collagen in the treated area, it should become both firmer and tighter with time. To keep your results, it will be important to maintain a healthy skincare routine, which we can advise you on as well. Though the aging process cannot be stopped, touch-up treatments can provide additional benefits in the future.
