About Microdermabrasion

When you touch your face, does your complexion feel smooth and soft or rough? The outer skin layer can become covered with dead and damaged skin cells that make your complexion uneven and dull. At Walters Plastic Surgery in New Orleans and Metairie, LA, plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters performs medical spa services like nonsurgical skin resurfacing using microdermabrasion. Quick and effective, microdermabrasion removes the surface layer of dead and damaged skin so your face is healthier and brighter. This procedure may be performed on its own or along with a complementary procedure, such as a chemical peel or dermal filler, for greater results. At your initial consultation, Dr. Walters will come up with a personalized treatment plan to fit your needs and complexion goals.

Ideal Candidates

Microdermabrasion sessions may minimize the look of blemishes on the skin's surface like uneven texture, dull skin tone, fine lines, clogged pores, sun damage, and scars. It is safe and effective for women and men of every skin type and tone that would like clearer, healthier skin. These treatments are usually used on the face, although it may also be great for your hands, neck, and chest. This procedure shouldn't be used on skin with an open wound or a chronic skin condition, such as rosacea or acne.

Procedure Technique

Microdermabrasion is completed at our office following a consultation to decide what procedures will give you the best results. During the treatment, you will be asked to lie back in a treatment chair as your face is prepared. The microdermabrasion tool will run along your skin as it exfoliates and sucks up the debris. Although the process may feel unusual, it is not considered uncomfortable, so you shouldn't need a local anesthetic or numbing cream. The microdermabrasion treatment will be performed evenly in the needed areas, but with extra caution on the delicate skin around the eyes. As soon as the process is over, your skin will be cleaned to get rid of any residual debris before a moisturizer, chosen for your skin's needs with UV protection, is massaged into the skin.

What to Expect

Following your microdermabrasion procedure, you may return to your regular routine, but you need to apply some form of sun protection since your baby-like skin will be susceptible to sun damage. The treated areas will feel softer and the tone will look brighter. To prolong the benefits, Dr. Walters suggests scheduling these procedures once every 4 – 6 weeks. Some of our patients feel that after treatments, the skincare products they use at home (particularly moisturizers) soak easily into the skin for more effective results.
