Is the New Year beckoning for younger-looking skin?

Whether you worshipped the sun when you were younger or you are just really starting to notice the effects of aging on your skin, these microdermabrasionare situations that can certainly make us feel self-conscious about the way we look. Fortunately for you, our Forest Hills, NY dermatologist, Dr. Tamara Moss, offers an amazing and simple solution for reviving your skin and saying goodbye to pesky lines and wrinkles.

What is microdermabrasion?

This minimally invasive skin procedure uses a small instrument that contains crystals that are used to polish the skin and sand away the dead outermost layers of skin to reveal fresh, healthier new skin. Microdermabrasion also helps to restructure collagen, which helps with skin elasticity and tautness. As we get older we start to lose collagen production, which results in sagging skin.

What skin problems can this treatment address?

There are many common skin conditions that microdermabrasion is able to treat including:

  • Reducing the appearance of age spots, blackheads and hyperpigmentation
  • Minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Treating enlarged pores
  • Minimizing or eliminating acne scars
  • Reducing the appearance of stretch marks
  • Exfoliating dull skin to reveal new, vibrant skin

What should I expect when I get microdermabrasion in Forest Hills, NY?

There are two different kinds of microdermabrasion techniques: crystal and diamond-tipped. Both handheld devices are directed over the surface of the skin to gently remove dead skin cells. In a crystal microdermabrasion, the dead skin cells are removed and then suctioned away to reveal healthy, new skin. Depending on the area or areas you want to treat, this procedure can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.

How many treatments will I need?

How many microdermabrasion sessions you need will depend on the severity of your skin damage. Some people will chose to have two sessions per month in the beginning and once they start to see the results they want will continue to get treatment once a month to maintain their results. You’ll also enjoy immediate results without any recovery time.
