Restore Your Youthful Glow...

At Bella Medspa in Bucks County, we’re continuing an age-old beauty tradition-microdermabrasion. This coveted Hollywood beauty secret actually dates back to the Ancient Egyptians. Today, mainstream men and women can also relish the profound benefits of this tried and true practice

This exfoliating process provides several benefits. During the healing process, new skin cells are brought to the surface creating a smoother look and feel.

In addition, some of the skin’s visible imperfections, like sun damage, blemishes and fine lines, are removed. Also, without the outermost layer of skin acting as a barrier, medicinal creams and lotions are far more effective because their active ingredients and moisturizing components can more readily find their way down to the lower layers of skin.

At Bella Medpsa in Bucks County, microdermabrasion is performed using a diamond tipped wand to buff away the surface layer of skin, also known as the epidermis.

The epidermis is a set of dead skin cells on top of another layer of cells that are in the process of maturing. During microdermabrasion, the surface layer of skin is exfoliated away revealing younger, healthier skin cells below.

Results are instantaneous and continue to improve over the course of time.

Benefits Include:

Treatments are performed using a DiamondTome wand which removes the upper most layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away. No loose abrasives are used to contaminate you or the environment.

You may have heard of microdermabrasion using crystals that sand blast the face leaving skin red and sore. Diamond microdermabrasion peels away dead skin and reduces wrinkles, acne scars, and brown spots.

The end result is healthier looking skin. Blotchy skin is minimized, brown spots and fine lines are reduced.

DiamondTome microdermabrasion is the answer to effectively reducing hair on the chest, face, neck, hands, and arms.

Typically, microdermabrasion is performed with 5 to 8 treatments. However, >many people see noticeable improvement after just one treatment.

Our diamond tipped wand gently exfoliates the skin while a vacuum action pulls away and collects the dead skin for disposal.

The DiamondTome is non-invasive, pain-free and requires no down time after treatment.

Although results are gradual and multiple treatments are recommended for treatment of sun damage, fine lines, shallow acne scarring and dry patches, countless men and women report obvious improvement after just one treatment.

For long lasting significant results, we typically recommend a series of 5 to 8 30-minute treatments, spread 10 to 30 days apart

What Are the Side Effects of Microdermabrasion?

Like any skin treatment, microdermabrasion carries potential side effects, though they are generally minor and temporary. Patients may experience skin sensitivity or redness immediately after their treatment, akin to a mild sunburn. Some people may also undergo slight skin bruising or swelling. These effects typically subside within a few days.

Other possible side effects include dry or flaky skin, which can be mitigated with appropriate moisturization. In rare cases, patients may notice changes in skin color or acne flare-ups. It’s important to discuss your skin’s condition and your medical history with your practitioner to minimize the odds of any of these adverse reactions to microdermabrasion.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?

A good candidate for microdermabrasion is someone who is in good health and has realistic expectations about the treatment’s results. The procedure is especially beneficial for individuals with mild acne, discoloration, pockmarks, and/or superficial acne scars.

People with minor skin imperfections such as sun damage, fine lines, and uneven pigmentation can also greatly benefit from this treatment.

Who Is Not a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?

While microdermabrasion is a beneficial procedure for many, it’s not suitable for everyone. Individuals with active skin conditions such as rosacea, dermatitis, eczema, recent sunburn, herpes, lupus, open sores, psoriasis, and fragile capillaries are often advised against undergoing this procedure.

Additionally, people with a history of skin discoloration, Keloid scarring, or those taking anticoagulant medications can also be disqualified from getting microdermabrasion. It’s always advisable to schedule a consultation with your esthetician before undergoing this skin treatment.

How to Prepare for Microdermabrasion Treatment

Preparing for a microdermabrasion treatment involves a few simple but essential steps. It’s recommended you avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least a week leading up to your appointment, as these can make your skin more sensitive to the procedure.

It’s also advised to stop using any exfoliating creams, retinol-based products, or at-home peels for at least three days before the treatment. Prior to the procedure, cleanse your skin thoroughly to remove any makeup, dirt, or oil. Lastly, be sure to hydrate properly and maintain a healthy diet to support your skin’s natural healing process.

What Is Microdermabrasion Recovery Like?

Microdermabrasion recovery is typically swift and uncomplicated, which has earned the treatment its reputation as a “lunchtime” procedure. Following your treatment, you may experience mild redness and a sensation similar to a sunburn, both of which usually subside within a few hours. Over the next few days, the treated skin may feel slightly dry or tight.

During this recovery period, it’s recommended you avoid direct sun exposure and to use a high SPF sunscreen when venturing outdoors. In addition, you should refrain from applying toners, topical acne treatments, and medicated cleansers in the days following your treatment.

Older, duller skin cells will be replaced as your skin heals, revealing a healthier, more radiant complexion.

How Long Do Microdermabrasion Results Last?

Microdermabrasion results can vary greatly depending on an individual’s skin type and condition. However, on average, the visible effects of a microdermabrasion treatment can last for up to a month.

Regular maintenance treatments are typically recommended every two to four weeks to maintain your skin’s improved appearance. It’s essential to follow a consistent skincare routine and protect your skin from the sun to extend the longevity of your results.

How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost?

The cost of microdermabrasion can vary significantly based on several factors, such as the location of the clinic, the expertise of the practitioner, and the specific needs of your skin. In general, though, the cost of a single microdermabrasion session typically ranges $75 to $150.

To achieve optimal results, patients often need to undergo multiple sessions. Also, keep in mind that most health insurance plans do not cover cosmetic procedures. It’s essential to consider these factors when budgeting for your skincare regimen.
