Reveal Your Naturally Radiant Skin
Microdermabrasion is a safe, non-surgical technique used to create healthy and youthful looking skin. Similar forms of the treatment have been used by ancient Egyptian royalty all the way to modern-day Hollywood stars, and in 2010 the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery counted microdermabrasion as one of the top five non-surgical procedures performed on both men and women. The microdermabrasion technique we use at our facilities in Phoenix employs a gentle yet thorough crystal scrub and vacuum to achieve the best results achievable. To make your skin look better than ever, make an appointment with the plastic surgery and eye surgery professionals at Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center.
Professional Microdermabrasion Process
Using an advanced form of exfoliation, microdermabrasion reveals a new, healthier layer of skin that heals and replaces the old dead skin and its flaws. The procedure, which lasts around 30 minutes to an hour, involves the use of a machine that blows a continuous thread of tiny crystals to break up the stratum corneum - the topmost layer of dead skin where fine wrinkles and some other imperfections occur. A vacuum simultaneously suctions up the tiny crystal particles along with the dead skin, revealing the layer underneath.
The body then works to replace the missing layer of skin with a newer, healthier one that feels smoother and looks clearer. Microdermabrasion can be combined with a light chemical peel to increase the effect. To achieve the best results possible, five to twelve treatments are suggested, about two or three weeks apart.

Essentially No Risk
There is almost no risk of adverse side effects with microdermabrasion. Sometimes the recovery from the sensitive skin can take two days, and usually one procedure is not enough to achieve the results that are desired. After discussing the treatment with our specialists, you'll find that microdermabrasion is a time-tested process that produces results safely and painlessly.
