About Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a skin restoration process offered at Bass Plastic Surgery in New York, NY and Great Neck, NY to reduce or eliminate effects of aging, sun exposure, pigmentation, acne scars, and active acne. Microdermabrasion, performed by our team of skin care experts, removes old, dead layers on the skin's surface and gently clears pores, leaving the skin looking healthier and firmer. In addition, microdermabrasion is a comfortable treatment that requires no downtime. Dr. Bass encourages patients who are looking for clearer, brighter skin to schedule a consultation today to start their skincare treatments. 

Best Candidates for Microdermabrasion

The best candidates for microdermabrasion:

  • Any skin type and color
  • Have skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, active acne, aged skin, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and uneven skin tone and texture
  • Desire better-looking, more radiant skin
  • Do not want an invasive surgical procedure
  • Have realistic outcomes

What to Expect with Microdermabrasion

The patient’s face will be thoroughly cleaned prior to the procedure. A handpiece with a measure grade of abrasive grit will be rubbed over the surface of the skin while a graded amount of suction is applied.  This polishes the skin while at the same time dead skin cells and other debris will be suctioned away and pores cleaned. Microdermabrasion also stimulates the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, which plays a key role in skin firmness.  The treatment also makes the skin more susceptible to the effects of masks and serums which can be applied during the same treatment.  Treatment can take 30 – 60 minutes to complete.

Microdermabrasion Anticipated Results

There’s no downtime with microdermabrasion, but the skin will look pink and also feel dry and tight for about 1 day after treatment. A medicated moisturizer will be applied after the treatment to alleviate these side effects. There will be visible results right after microdermabrasion, where patients should experience smoother, brighter, and more even-toned skin. For full results, 4-6 treatments are recommended every 2 – 3 weeks.
