If you run your hands over your face, does your skin feel soft and smooth or rough? If rough, the outer layer of your skin may be covered with dead and damaged skin cells that make your complexion dull and uneven. Renew Beauty Med Spa & Wellness Center in Dallas and Frisco, TX offers cosmetic services, like noninvasive skin resurfacing with microdermabrasion. Quick and effective, microdermabrasion treatments remove the surface layer of damaged and dead skin so your complexion is brighter and healthier. This procedure can be used alone or with another procedure, like a dermal filler or chemical peel, for more dramatic improvements. During your consultation, our aesthetic team will come up with a personalized treatment plan to fit your needs and complexion goals.
"I bought a Groupon for a 5* facial and Microdermabrasion and I was very happy with the whole experience. The spa staff was very friendly from booking the service to checking out at the end. I saw Bella for my service and she was wonderful! Very knowledgeable and friendly. I usually absolutely dread the extraction portion of a facial because they are so painful that I'm almost driven to tears, but as I waited for the pain this time...there was none! Bella has a magic, gentle touch ( I think it is a result of her 30+ years of experience.) Great experience overall. From reading the older reviews - I would venture to say, based on my experience, that this spa has resolved whatever staffing issues they may have had in the past. I will be returning."- V.G. / Yelp / Apr 15, 2013
"I went to this salon after a Groupon purchase. I did have to wait for 1 1/2 hours for my first appointment. My second appointment was a 1/2 hour wait. My 3rd appt. was no wait. I do think they are trying to improve this and let's face it, I got a screaming deal on the treatment I got. I bought 2 groupon specials of a microdermabrasion facial and a photofacial and I absolutely cannot believe the results on my skin. The sun spots that were on my face have almost completely gone after those first three treatments and I cannot wait for my second and last photofacial. I don't know if I got really great results or this is what anyone could expect but I am so incredibly pleased. The ladies who worked on my treatments all did a great job, were knowledgeable and made great recommendations for my skin. Yes, they will recommend products for you to buy - they are a business afterall! - but they have great products and honestly, I would take them up on their recommendations if you can afford it! If you can't, tell them! I will definitely come here again - they use top class products and give a great service and I got great results. I can deal with the wait. :)"- K.G. / Yelp / Jul 22, 2010
Microdermabrasion sessions can minimize the look of surface skin blemishes, like dull skin tone, fine lines, uneven texture, clogged pores, scars, and sun damage. It is safe and effective for women and men of all skin tones and types that want healthier, clearer skin. These treatments are usually performed on the face, but they can also be great for the skin on your hands, neck, and chest. This procedure should not be performed on skin that has an open wound or if you have a chronic condition, like acne or rosacea.
Microdermabrasion treatments are completed in our office after a thorough consultation to determine what services will give you your best results. For the treatment, you will lie back in a comfortable chair as your skin is prepared. The microdermabrasion tool will run along your skin as it polishes and vacuums the debris. While the treatment feels unusual, it is not considered painful so you should not need a numbing cream or local anesthesia. The microdermabrasion will be applied evenly over the needed areas with more caution to the delicate skin around the eyes. As soon as the treatment is over, the skin will be lightly cleansed to remove any residual debris before a moisturizer, selected for your skin type with UV protection, is applied.
What to Expect
After a microdermabrasion procedure, you can get back to your normal routine as long as you wear sunscreen or another form of sun protection since your skin will be sensitive. Your face should feel smoother and your tone will look brighter. To prolong the benefits, our aesthetic team recommends scheduling these procedures every 4 – 6 weeks. Some Renew Beauty Med Spa & Wellness Center patients notice that after treatments, the skin care products they use at home (especially moisturizers) absorb more easily into their skin for better results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does microdermabrasion cost?
Your cost for a microdermabrasion will be discussed during your consultation with a skin care professional. Once you explain your wants and they examine your skin, your custom treatment plan will be created. Renew Beauty Med Spa & Salon has specials on treatments, like microdermabrasion, as well as discounted packages if you buy several sessions.
Should I get microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel?
Depending on your complexion and goals, a skin care professional will help you determine if microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel is the best treatment for you. In general, microdermabrasion is good to clear away the surface layer of dead and damaged skin cells so your complexion is smooth and healthier. A light chemical peel produces similar results to microdermabrasion. Dermabrasion or a stronger chemical peel is better if your skin problems are below the surface skin layers. The amount of time you want to spend in recovery may also influence which treatment you want since microdermabrasion requires little to no downtime.
How often should I get microdermabrasion treatments?
Initially, you should receive a total of 5 – 12 microdermabrasion treatments with 2 – 4 weeks between each treatment to experience optimal results. After that, you should schedule treatments every 4 – 8 weeks to maintain your healthy complexion. During your consultation, your technician will make a plan with recommendations specific to your needs that details how often you should schedule appointments for microdermabrasion.
How should I care for my skin after a microdermabrasion treatment?
After your microdermabrasion, you should avoid strenuous activity for at least 24 hours to allow your skin time to heal. You should avoid UV rays (natural sunlight or tanning beds) and protect your skin with sunscreen. To limit redness and swelling after the microdermabrasion, we may recommend a moisturizer or cold compresses.
Can I combine microdermabrasion with other treatments?
Since microdermabrasion is a surface skin treatment, you may consider combining it with other procedures. Many patients combine microdermabrasion with a facial or an injectable wrinkle treatment, like BOTOX. You should be honest about your complexion needs during your consultation so your technician can develop a plan that fits all your goals.
