Microdermabrasion is a procedure that helps to repair damage to the facial skin caused by the sun and aging. Tiny crystals are sprayed across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead outer layer of skin. More than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.
Though minimally invasive, there are still many topics to discuss when considering microdermabrasion. A client's lifestyle, health and wishes are all taken into consideration. Below are just a few items that are discussed before receiving microdermabrasion at Warren Clinic Plastic Surgery.
- Why is this procedure being considered?
- What are the expectations and desired outcomes of the procedure?
- Discuss the patient's medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments including current medications, vitamins and herbal supplements as well as alcohol and tobacco use.
Our physicians and staff will use this information to evaluate the patient's general health status and any pre-existing health conditions. They will also discuss all side effects, the most common being pink or red swollen skin at the treatment site.
Paul A. Berry, M.D., and Kevin Kunkel, M.D., are board certified and members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Why is this important?
