Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure in which the surface of the skin is smoothed by being buffed by an abrasive instrument. The abrasive action improves the skin’s contour as the new layer of skin replaces the old, treated skin. This technique is less abrasive and less uncomfortable than full dermabrasion.
As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Blinski is unlike many others doctors performing cosmetic procedures in that he has a comprehensive understanding of every aspect of the procedure. Some doctors who perform those procedures are actually General Practioners who have taken a weekend seminar on that single procedure. Dr. Blinski is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and a widely recognized expert on many procedures. His training and experience means he has an understanding of every nuance of cosmetic procedures like Liposuction, Breast Augmentation, or Rhinoplasty. No matter what your particular situation may be, you can be confident that Dr. Blinski will recommend the best procedure for you.
The Microdermabrasion Procedure
Microdermabrasion uses a tool similar to the one used in dermabrasion, but it is not nearly as aggressive on our skin. Dr. Blinski uses a special hand held, device similar to a sandblaster. This device sprays and circulates a high pressure flow of Al2O3 (aluminum oxide) crystals over the skin. The circulating motion of the crystals gently exfoliate (remove the dead cells) from the outermost layer, or epidermis, of the skin.
After the procedure, you will feel minimal discomfort and slight redness that will fade within a few hours. You should avoid any direct or indirect sunlight for those hours immediately after the treatment.
