PRP- application after micro-needling
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
The procedure uses a unique applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the skin's thick outer layer to rejuvenate it.
A different microdermabrasion technique sprays fine particles of aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate with a vacuum/suction to accomplish the same outcome as the abrasive surface.
Microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure for most skin types and colors. People might choose to get the process if they have the following skin concerns:
fine lines and wrinkles
hyperpigmentation, age spots, and brown spots
enlarged pores and blackheads
acne and acne scars
dull-looking skin complexion
uneven skin tone and texture

Microdermabrasion is an in-office procedure that usually takes about one hour. It’s typically performed by a licensed skin care professional, who may or may not be under the supervision of a healthcare provider. This depends on what state you reside.
It’s not necessary to use anesthesia or a numbing agent for microdermabrasion.
During your appointment, you’ll be seated in a reclining chair. Your provider will use a handheld device to gently spray on the particles or sand away the outer layer of skin in the targeted areas. At the end of the treatment, a moisturizer and sunscreen will be applied to your skin.
Microdermabrasion was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1996.
