Restore Your Confidence With Clear Skin
If you're looking for a safe, effective, and non-invasive way to achieve a brighter, smoother, and more youthful complexion, microdermabrasion might be just what you need.
At Chicago Skin Clinic, we want you to feel confident in your skin. Whether you're preparing for a special event, looking to boost your self-esteem, or taking better care of your skin, microdermabrasion can give you the results you want without downtime, discomfort, or risk.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
This popular cosmetic treatment has been helping people of all ages and skin types to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and more.
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a special tool to exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
The tool then vacuums the crystals and dead skin cells, revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath. The procedure is painless and typically takes less than an hour to complete.
Microdermabrasion Vs. Hydrodermabrasion
Both microdermabrasion and hydrodermabrasion are effective exfoliating treatments that can improve the appearance and texture of your skin. However, they work differently and have unique benefits and limitations.
- Microdermabrasion: This exfoliating treatment uses a handheld device with a diamond or crystal tip to buff away the outermost layer of dead skin cells and debris, revealing smooth, refreshed skin underneath. This mechanical exfoliation also stimulates collagen production and helps other skincare products to improve your skin.
- Hydrodermabrasion: Hydrodermabrasion uses a jet of water infused with oxygen and other nutrients to cleanse, hydrate, and rejuvenate your skin. This gentle and non-invasive treatment can also help to reduce inflammation, unclog pores, and brighten the complexion.
The choice between microdermabrasion and hydrodermabrasion depends on your skin type, concerns, goals, and the expertise of your skincare provider. At Chicago Skin Clinic, we offer both options and can help you determine which one is right for you.
The Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a popular cosmetic treatment at Chicago Skin Clinic that offers many benefits for your skin, including:
Reduced Discoloration & Sun Damage
Microdermabrasion can help reduce hyperpigmentation and sun damage by exfoliating the skin's surface, which can remove dark spots, age spots, and other discoloration caused by sun exposure or hormonal changes.
Regular microdermabrasion sessions can also promote cell turnover, which can fade existing hyperpigmentation and prevent new spots from forming.
Instant Results With Minimal Downtime
You'll see instant results with minimal downtime from microdermabrasion at Chicago Skin Clinic. The treatment is non-invasive and typically takes less than an hour to complete.
After the treatment, you may experience mild redness and sensitivity, but this should subside within a few hours. Unlike more aggressive treatments, such as chemical peels or laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion requires no downtime or recovery period.
Improved Skin Texture & Tone
One of the main benefits of microdermabrasion is its ability to improve skin texture and tone. By removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and debris, microdermabrasion helps to smooth out rough and uneven skin, refine pores, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Also, microdermabrasion can stimulate collagen production, improving skin elasticity and firmness over time.
Minimized Acne & Scarring
Microdermabrasion also minimizes acne and scarring by unclogging pores, removing blackheads and whiteheads, and reducing the appearance of acne scars and other blemishes. Microdermabrasion can also promote the growth of new, healthy skin cells, which can help to prevent future breakouts and scarring.
Enhanced Skincare Product Penetration
Microdermabrasion can also enhance the effectiveness of other skincare products. By removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells, microdermabrasion allows for better absorption of active ingredients — such as antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid — to boost the results of your skincare routine and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.
Is Microdermabrasion the Right Choice For You?
Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective treatment for most people, but it may not be suitable for individuals with certain skin conditions, such as active acne or rosacea. A consultation with Dr. Danny Del Campo or Dr. Danilo V. Del Campo can help determine if microdermabrasion is right for you.
