Microdermabrasion in Huntersville, NC

Healthy skin is one of the most-desired results of plastic surgery for those in Charlotte and the surrounding areas. If you believe that surgery is the only way to have younger looking skin, you should consider microdermabrasion. Dr. Briggs E. Cook, Jr., a board-certified Huntersville surgeon who specializes in facial plastic surgery, recommends microdermabrasion for anti-aging and skin correction.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion gives you healthy, younger skin by safely removing the damaged outer layer of skin to reveal fresh, new layers underneath. Dead skin is removed by spraying tiny microcrystals on it, much like a small-scale pressure washer. Dead skin cells, impurities, and expelled crystals are concurrently removed with a small suction device. This procedure also encourages blood flow to your skin, thereby increasing oxygen levels and stimulating new cell development and collagen production. The procedure requires no recovery, so you can resume your day with a glowing, smooth complexion.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Dr. Cook recommends microdermabrasion to:

  • Reduce breakouts
  • Eliminate blemishes
  • Soften stretch marks and scars
  • Decrease pore size
  • Correct fine lines, wrinkles and uneven pigmentation
  • Improve skin texture and tone

What Should I Expect From Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion at Pure Facial Plastic Surgery is a comfortable and relaxing skin care procedure. We remove makeup and other substances from your face prior to the treatment. You should also remove any jewelry beforehand.

A special device is used to deliver the microcrystals at a high speed against the surface of your skin and then suction away exfoliated skin cells, impurities, and microcrystals. Our aesthetician carefully moves the device around the area to ensure that every part of the skin is treated, including around your mouth and eyes. The treatment takes less than one hour. A rejuvenating serum is applied to your skin as a final touch. No downtime is required after microdermabrasion.

Dr. Cook may recommend a series of treatments to achieve optimum results. Initially, you may have one treatment each week for three weeks, followed by three more treatments scheduled at two-week intervals. You can then have follow-up treatments every four to six weeks.

What Should my Physician Explain to me About Microdermabrasion?

Your skin is more sensitive to sunlight after microdermabrasion, so you should take steps to protect it from sun damage.

Patient comfort is our highest priority. If at any time during the treatment you are unable to tolerate the microdermabrasion, let us know, and we will adjust the intensity of the device.

How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost?

The cost of your microdermabrasion treatment is based upon the size of the treatment area and the amount of correction that is needed. You may pay by cash, personal check or major credit card. If you are interested in financing your microdermabrasion treatment, you may apply for Alphaeon™ Credit
