"Warning: long post I call my cancer diagnosis “the gift that keeps on giving”. When I was referred to Dr. Walters, I had gone through 8 surgeries and was experiencing a 4-way contraction on the right side as a result of radiation after reconstruction. This caused me to be in pain 24 hours a day. Dr. Walters gave me hope that I could live without that pain and he did a fat transfer from my stomach to make a new breast. The pain was gone. This past November I had the second phase of the surgery which was to give me symmetry, to reconstruct the nipples which were misshapen, and to transfer fat to give fullness where needed. The surgery was a success for me. I can look at myself in the mirror and I am okay with what I see now. I live two and a half hours from Dr. Walters’ offices. Dr. Walters and his staff were kind, responsive, and accommodating to my needs to say the least. My questions which were numerous were answered in a timely manner. During difficult times, Dr. Walters was able to see me quickly and he was willing to discuss options by phone. I am a happy patient and at every visit I was asked if I was happy with the results. I can say that I am very pleased and happy with my results and with the care I was given by Dr. Walters and all of his staff!"- D.B. / Google / May 29, 2019
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.
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.
