What is Microdermabrasion?
As one of the most popular skin resurfacing treatments available in the US, Microdermabrasion in Methuen at Laser Aesthetic is great for all skin types and all ages. Our Viora Pristine microderm reduces your pores, treats sun damage, age spots, scarring and stretch marks by removing the older outer layers of skin.* Microdermabrasion is the perfect solution for individuals with minor skin problems and is one of the most affordable options available.
Our experienced aestheticians at our reputable spa and aesthetic center recommend Microdermabrasion due to its quick treatment time and long-lasting effects.* The procedure is perfect for those getting ready for a wedding, reunion, or other big day celebrations, as well as for those looking to reduce the amount of time spent in front of a mirror trying new over-the-counter skin care products.
What to Expect
Our Microdermabrasion procedure in Methuen uses a slightly abrasive diamond-tipped hand-held wand called the Viora Pristine. The wand removes the outermost layer of your skin — the epidermis — in order to reveal a healthy, smooth new layer of skin.* The treatment itself only lasts a half hour and is mostly used on the face and neck, which means you can book an appointment at Laser Aesthetic during your lunch break!
As the Microdermabrasion device is gently moved across your face, you may experience a mild scratching sensation. The procedure is non-invasive, clean, and most importantly safe to repeat once or twice a month. For the best and most long-lasting effects, our skin care specialists recommend using ZO Skin Health products after the procedure.* At Laser Aesthetic, you can always expect to sit down and have a free consultation before treatment begins to discuss your goals. Based on your skin type, skin condition, age and other factors, we will recommend a customized treatment plan for you.
What Should I do Pre and Post-Treatment?
Before your appointment, remove any makeup and clean your face as thoroughly as possible using a gentle soap and warm water. Avoid facial treatments including laser, chemical peels, or facials up to 48 hours after the procedure as the new skin layer might be sensitive. Wear SPF 30 or greater sunscreen in order to reduce the chances of creating sun spots or wrinkles. We recommend using ZO Skin Health products after your treatment to prolong the beautiful results.*
How Long is the Procedure?
Microdermabrasion is often called the “lunch time facial” because the time it takes to complete the entire process is 30 minutes or less. At Laser Aesthetic, we do recommend accounting for any time you would like to take before and after the treatment to discuss your goals and ideal results for your skin. The procedure is non-invasive and virtually pain free, which means there’s no downtime after — simply go back to your daily activities!
What Does Microdermabrasion Treat?
Since the Microdermabrasion treatment sloughs off dead skin cells to reveal a youthful and smooth layer of skin, the procedure is often used to treat a number of different minor skin concerns. Patients with rosacea, mild scaring, acne, sun spots, stretch marks, enlarged or clogged pores, or oily and dull skin have achieved amazing results from Microdermabrasion.* Combined with ZO Skin Health products — available at Laser Aesthetic — patients will see longer lasting results.*
Is Microdermabrasion Right for Me?
Our Microdermabrasion treatment in Methuen is perfect for those aged 16 or older who are looking to improve minor skin imperfections. Although the treatment is painless and there are little to no side effects, some patients may experience skin sensitivity to sunlight for a few days following treatment. Bruising, bumps or rashes may occur in some patients, but this is rare and not permanent.
