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.

I am honored to recommend Dr. Alex Sobel and his staff for any of your cosmetic needs. After losing 60 pounds, I developed sagging skin under my chin, which made me appear older. With a little consultation from Anderson Sobel Cosmetic Surgery, I decided to go with their services for my skin and appearance improvements. Not only did I have the initial facelift for my neck but I also opted for eyelid surgery and facial rejuvenation.

This was over three years ago and I am still satisfied with my results. I returned to have liposuction, laser skin resurfacing, and Thermage treatment for my laugh lines. I also use Obagi Skincare products daily which have furthered my facial rejuvenation. Today, I am often mistaken for a man in his mid-40′s. I enjoy the look in other people’s faces when I tell them my actual age of 67 years. That alone is my best recommendation for Dr. Sobel and his very talented staff! I feel as if I have a new lease on life with a fresh, new face.
