Get a Fresh Face for the Holidays with Microdermabrasion

Do you have discolored skin, scarring, or sun damage on your face? Are you looking for a safe, effective way to repair and restore your skin, particularly in time for the holidays? Some facial scars or other markings can be embarrassing or even painful. Fortunately, there is a way to safely get rid of them.

Dr. Imtiaz Ahmad, MD, at Comprehensive Vein Treatment Center in Trenton, New Jersey, is an experienced vein specialist who offers a procedure called microdermabrasion: a non-surgical treatment to rejuvenate and heal your face.

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion involves a minimally abrasive technique that carefully sands the skin to remove spots and other marks on the outer layer. As a result, your facial collagen will be made thicker, which will not only help your skin look smoother but also younger (an added bonus).

At Comprehensive Vein Treatment Center, you will consult with the medical team to see how microdermabrasion can best address your needs. This procedure is ideal for anyone with unwanted wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tones, or sun damage. It’s also ideal for anyone who simply wants to have a more vibrant, younger-looking complexion.

How microdermabrasion works

The procedure will happen in the office and usually takes about an hour. You will be able to sit in a reclining chair for the entire process as Dr. Ahmad sprays sand-like particles on your skin with a special device. These particles gently sand away the outer layer of your skin that is affected by scarring or other unwanted marks. You will be given a special moisturizer, as well as sunscreen, at the end of the treatment.

What to expect after the treatment

No recovery time is necessary after microdermabrasion; you can return to your normal activities as soon as you leave the office. Keep in mind, however, that it’s extremely important for your skin to stay hydrated. If you use any acne medication, you’ll want to hold off for at least 24 hours. It’s also extremely vital to use sunscreen if you go outside because your face will be extra sensitive for a few weeks.
