Microdermabrasion is a convenient option for patients seeking to reveal the deep facial beauty that has been marred by imperfections or obscured by time. It is a non-surgical procedure that abrades away the top layer of coarse skin cells to unveil the new, collagen-enriched cells below.
Removing these aging cells improves wrinkles, lines and discoloration etched onto the surface. Here, Sonya VanGheem, Aesthetic Director at Plastic Surgery of Virginia Beach, describes the process and outlines the remarkable benefits of microdermabrasion. Sonya has over twenty years of experience in the field of dermatology and plastic surgery and has been with Dr. Bounds for twelve years. She has developed specialized skills in skin resurfacing with microdermabrasion.
Sands of Time
Although the technique involved is older than some new cosmetic rejuvenating procedures, such as laser skin resurfacing, it is still one of the most popular and effective ways to restore a youthful glow to facial skin. And although the technique is comfortable for you, it is distressing for skin and tissue, disrupting subdermal layers and tricking your body into marshaling its powerful healing defenses. When this happens, tissue is bathed in collagen and elastin, the revitalizing proteins that give skin its strength, flexibility and healthy appearance.
Record of Success
When you choose microdermabrasion, it is also important that you select a trained professional to administer the treatment. Some day spas and other non-medical providers advertise this procedure, but the results are often disappointing. Sonya has performed hundreds of microdermabrasion treatments, ensuring your satisfaction and success.
Sonya suggests patients consider several microdermabrasion appointments to maximize the restorative benefits of this technology. Every four to six weeks is the course of treatment recommended. After six months, the results will be dramatic, and Sonya can also suggest a home skin care routine that will help maintain your new appearance.
