Microdermabrasion Seattle

What is Microdermabrasion?

Before-after-gallery

For smooth, clean skin patients should consider Microdermabrasion. Seattle weather can be harsh on your face, and this procedure is an excellent way to reverse the damage of cold temperatures and harsh winds. The process of cell renewal (exfoliation) is a natural process that slows with age. Uniform removal of the superficial dead cells thickens the epidermis, increases the production of new cells, and encourages the production of collagen and elastin. All skin types can be treated with Microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion was developed in Europe in 1985 and was introduced in the United States in the early 90s. Aluminum oxide crystals are projected onto the skin in a safe and uniform manner to painlessly exfoliate layers of the epidermis. These crystals, along with dead skin cells, are vacuumed into a closed filter container and discarded. A control gauge allows for increased vacuum for a more aggressive peel and decreased vacuum for a gentler peel.

Microdermabrasion leaves your skin smooth and clean with slight redness that fades quickly. Blackheads are loosened, whiteheads become unsurfaced and hyperpigmentation lightens. Acne scars, enlarged pores and epidermal wrinkles become less prominent. Blood containing oxygen and nutrients is drawn to the surface to feed and repair cells.

The process of microdermabrasion should be approached in a series of at least five treatments in order to get a lasting effect. The patient will be treated every week or two, depending on the aggressiveness of the peel. A proper skin program, including Retin-A and prescription Hydroquinone, when needed, is imperative for long lasting improvement with microdermabrasion.

On Tummy Tuck, Arm Lift, and Fat Grafting:

I highly recommend Dr. Alex Sobel and his staff. After a 75lb weight loss, I had problem areas that needed to be addressed. After my initial consultation with Dr. Sobel, I felt confident that he was the Dr. to work with. He is very skilled, kind and respectful. His care after my procedures was phenomenal. Even during the Thanksgiving holiday, he was available and encouraged me to call him personally. I am a little over a month out after having three procedures and feel great. I am so pleased. I have decided to go back for two other procedures with Dr. Sobel based on his expertise, personality and skills. Thank you, Dr. Sobel for a life changing experience!
