What is a Microdermabrasion?

Maryland Plastic Surgeon serving Washington DC, & Virginia including Alexandria and Fairfax.


If you live in or around Maryland and you want vibrant, younger-looking skin, you're probably looking for a safe, simple solution, a procedure that can remove signs of age and wear. And a microdermabrasion fits all of these criteria.

The microdermabrasion works by exfoliating your skin, removing dry skin and layers of dead skin cells. It also stimulates circulation and the production of your body's natural collagen reserves, which greatly aids healing.

The microdermabrasion process is just that- a process. You'll require a series of treatments set at a specific schedule- the number of treatments required can vary, but it's usually between six and 12. Fortunately, each treatment is simple and short, taking no more than 30 minutes.

The microdermabrasion can achieve extraordinary things, including the removal of:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Dry skin
  • Stretch marks

And that's not an exhaustive list. The microdermabrasion is a flexible procedure, which means many signs of age and wear are pliable to its charms.

If you live in or around Maryland and you're looking for dramatic facial rejuvenation, microdermabrasion might be right for you. Please call Bella Cosmetic Surgery today at 301-567-6767 for a consultation.
