Weather elements, environmental pollutants, stress, aging – they take a toll on the condition of your skin. Microdermabrasion is noninvasive and has no downtime and, yet this procedure effectively renews the overall texture and tone of your complexion.

What is a microdermabrasion facial?
Microdermabrasion is much more beneficial than a regular facial. More complete exfoliation is accomplished with microdermabrasion, which allows topical serums to penetrate deeply.
The technique involves removing dead and damaged skin cells in superficial layers with a controlled, fine spray of an abrasive medium or with a diamond-tipped handpiece. As surface skin is sloughed off, it is suctioned away, revealing fresh, rejuvenated skin.
FDA-approved microdermabrasion is a good treatment choice for:
- Acne scarring
- Age spots
- Brown spots
- Coarse skin texture
- Dull complexion
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
Improvement is seen after one session, with continued refinement during your personalized treatment plan.
Your microdermabrasion treatment in Orchard Park, NY
At Orchard Park Dermatology, your experience begins with a consultation with a licensed aesthetician. If you determine that microdermabrasion is the most appropriate option for your concerns, treatment is scheduled. Please avoid sun exposure, indoor tanning, sunless tanning preparations, and waxing for at least a week before your appointment, and stop using masks or topical exfoliators a few days before.
Microdermabrasion is performed on site and takes about an hour. No anesthesia or numbing is required. Simply relax back into the comfortable treatment chair. Your face is cleansed to remove makeup. The provider moves the device across skin, making several passes over targeted areas. A luxurious moisturizer and sunscreen are applied, and you return to normal activities. You could have minor pinkness, swelling, or tenderness, but it typically resolves in a few hours. You may resume your normal skin care routine and wear makeup the next day.
Most microdermabrasion patients eagerly schedule periodic re-treatment to keep skin smooth, soft, youthful-looking, and even-toned.
