Microdermabrasion, Raleigh, NC
Brighten and beautify your skin with microdermabrasion.
You’ve probably heard of microdermabrasion and how it can beautify the skin, but you may or may not have tried this type of skincare treatment yourself. At Wake Skincare, we highly recommend microdermabrasion to nearly all of our clients who come and see us from the Raleigh, North Carolina area because of the incredible results it can get.
Microdermabrasion is a type of dermatological procedure that removes the skin’s top layer. Many people use microdermabrasion to reduce the appearance of acne scars, even out their skin tone, and brighten up their complexion. Most microdermabrasion appointments take about 30 minutes to complete, and we usually combine the process with other treatments. Keep in mind that while microdermabrasion can be very effective, it may take several sessions for you to achieve the exact results you want.
During your microdermabrasion appointment, your skin will be intensely exfoliated with a specialized wand. Although this may seem like it will be rough on your skin, many of our patients report that the process feels like their skin is being tugged at slightly. And since microdermabrasion only works on the skin’s surface layers, you don’t have to worry about sustaining any intense damage.
Our clients love the main benefit of microdermabrasion: it is relatively painless, and you can get back to your normal day after your appointment. While you may experience some swelling, redness, and mild tenderness after your appointment, these symptoms should subside a few hours after the treatment. And once the swelling and redness subsides, your skin will look refreshed and rejuvenated with fewer imperfections. We can recommend the frequency of microdermabrasion based on your skin type as part of your customized skin care protocol.
