Microdermabrasion and Your Skin, a Love Story

Skin Rejuvenation Cleveland, OHWhen you say the word “crystals,” different people have different reactions. Some instantly think of Mr. Scott and his famous dilithium crystals on the Starship Enterprise. For others, images of Yanni and his big hair, incense, and New Age mumbo jumbo go with crystals.

Well, Dr. Fedele likes to think of crystals in a different context — he uses them to improve your facial skin with an easy-to-take procedure known as microdermabrasion.

At Dr. Fedele’s we use microcrystals to basically abrade the top layer of your skin. The concept is similar to a light sandblasting. That’s the idea behind microdermabrasion, but instead of removing unwanted stains or paint, you’re removing the dull, lifeless external layer of your epidermis. Microdermabrasion exposes the glowing, fresh skin underneath.

What skin problems does microdermabrasion help?

Microdermabrasion is effective when used for certain skin conditions:

  • Solar lentigines
  • Melasma
  • Dilated pores
  • Oily skin
  • Thick skin
  • Mild, shallow acne scarring

How microdermabrasion works

Microdermabrasion is very effective and very easy to take, with no downtime. It’s non-invasive and non-surgical and we won’t play any John Tesh CDs! It involves the use of aluminum oxide or sodium chloride crystals to exfoliate the skin surface. The crystals are sprayed onto the skin through a wand that also suctions back the crystals and any dead skin that has been removed. The degree of exfoliation is determined by the amount of suction used, along with the number of passes made over an area.

Anywhere from five to 12 microdermabrasion sessions are used to enhance skin hydration, sebum production, and texture. Appointments are spaced two to three weeks apart to allow the skin to recover. No anesthesia or numbing agents are necessary. Plus, you can return to work or your typical activities right after your session.

Want to put the power of crystals to work for your facial skin…without the incense? Call Dr. Fedele at (216) 464-1616 and ask about microdermabrasion.
