Microdermabrasion Norfolk

Skin care should be a key part of your overall beauty routine. The health and appearance of your skin play a major role when it comes to your looks. Cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing your skin on a regular basis can make all the difference.

Unfortunately, there may come a point where your skin is in need of a little more care than you can provide for yourself at home. Over time, exposure to harsh factors like the UV rays emitted by the sun and the effects of aging can take a toll on the health and beauty of your skin. This makes issues like sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and poor skin texture nearly impossible to avoid.

Fortunately, Norfolk Plastic Surgery offers an amazing treatment for rejuvenating the radiance of your skin: microdermabrasion.


Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin-care treatment that polishes and strengthens the skin by gently sanding off the rough surface layer of skin using a stream of crystals. The treatment eliminates the dead and damaged cells in the surface layer of the skin to expose a new and fresh layer that is healthier, smoother, and younger-looking.

Microdermabrasion is a great choice for addressing:

  • Rough patches of skin
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged pores

Microdermabrasion is also an excellent option for people who do not want to undergo a chemical peel treatment, have sensitive skin, are prone to acne breakouts, and are showing the early signs of aging on their skin.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

The microdermabrasion treatment is performed using a special hand-held device that shoots out a steady stream of special tiny crystals at a rapid speed. It’s like a tiny sandblaster for your skin. The device will be carefully and precisely moved across your skin to ensure an even treatment.

As the tiny crystals quickly pass over the surface of the skin, they gently scrape off the rough and damaged surface layer. The device also includes a small vacuum used to gather all the crystals and capture the dead skin cells.

Removing dead skin cells allows a fresh layer of skin to take the place of the old damaged layer. It also stimulates the production of new collagen in the skin. Collagen is a structural protein that helps to strengthen and tighten the skin. This helps to give the skin a smooth, tight, and youthful appearance.

What to Expect

Microdermabrasion is not painful. While you can feel the sensation of the crystals passing over the surface of the skin, it should not cause pain or discomfort. Most people state that it feels like a vibration massage on the skin.

It only takes about half an hour to perform the treatment. There is no downtime associated with microdermabrasion, which means you can return to your normal activities as soon as your treatment is completed. Your skin may be a little dry and sensitive immediately after the treatment, so it is best that you apply a gentle moisturizer.

Multiple treatment session will yield better results. Our team can work with you to figure out a treatment plan that fits your schedule.
