The microdermabrasion procedure requires no downtime. After your treatment is completed, we may prescribe a special moisturizer or other product to enhance and prolong the results achieved.
In order to remove the top layer of your skin and promote new growth, Dr. Jimerson uses a special microdermabrasion wand. There are two types of microdermabrasion procedures:
One utilizes a hand-held device that sprays very small crystals across your skin, while a vacuum suctions up the crystals along with the dead and loosened skin.
A more current approach uses a diamond-tip wand to exfoliate your skin.
All you’ll feel is a mild scratching, and a vibrating sensation that’s similar to a massage.
Your renewed look will last a long time, depending on the skin damage, the severity and the number of treatments that are required.
The usual protocol is to have two microdermabrasion treatments each month for the first several months, then one per month as part of your ongoing maintenance program.
As with any procedure, there are some potential risks or complications. You have to determine if the benefits that you’ll obtain from your procedure outweigh the risks involved.
Dr. Jimerson and his trained staff will do everything possible to minimize risks and post-operative complications. Risks may include:
- Bruising from the suction device (temporary) • Sunlight sensitivity • Redness • Swelling • Dry and flaky skin (temporary)
Because of the sunlight sensitivity, it’s extremely important to use a sunscreen after your microdermabrasion procedure.
It’s important to discuss any concerns you have with Dr. Jimerson prior to your surgery. If you have a question – please ask!
Prior to your procedure you will have a consultation with Dr. Jimerson. This is an important appointment, as it will give you an opportunity to ask questions about the procedure and what you can expect from the surgery.
He will discuss you specific goals, take a medical history and review your current medications. Photos are usually taken, both before and after the surgery.
You will also be able to learn what options are available to you, along with the risks and possible complications of the procedure.
During your appointment, it’s good to ask Dr. Jimerson questions about your surgery.
Here are some questions to consider:
– What other procedures are recommended?
– How long will the recovery period be for my procedure?
– What risks are associated with my procedure?
– What type of complications can happen?
– When will I be able to see the results of my procedure?
– Do you think that I’m a good candidate for this procedure?
Bes sure to ask any other questions you have about Dr. Jimerson, the procedure or anything else that concerns you about your procedure.
