If you run your hands over your face, does your skin feel soft and smooth or rough like sand paper? The top layer of skin may be cluttered with dead skin cells that are making your complexion dull and uneven. At TruDerm in Allen and Plano, TX, we offer cosmetic and medical dermatology services like noninvasive skin resurfacing with microdermabrasion. Fast and effective, microdermabrasion treatments remove the outer layer of dead skin cells so your complexion is brighter and healthier. Microdermabrasion can be used alone or with another cosmetic treatment, like a dermal filler or chemical peel, for more dramatic improvements. During your consultation, your provider will create a unique treatment plan for your specific skin concerns and cosmetic goals.
"I got microdermabrasion done for the first time at TruDerm and it was one of the bests dermatology experiences I've had! Sally was great and took time to answer all the questions I had and explain to me the process beforehand. The office is beautiful and everyone there is caring and respectful. They also have an awesome membership program that I'm signing up for! Overall great place and I highly recommend."- R.P. / Yelp / Nov 07, 2018
"I’ve been seeing Renee for a few years now. She is so great, knowledgeable and super sweet and pleasant. It’s always such a treat to see her. She’s very professional and knows a lot about the skin and different lasers. I won’t see anyone else, so whenever I am in town I make sure I get a treatment with Renee! I’ve had laser hair removal and multiple facial treatments (skin pen, sun spot laser treatment, microdermabrasion, etc.) and I’m always happy with everything she does."- I.K. / Google / Nov 17, 2018
Microdermabrasion treatments can improve the appearance of surface skin blemishes including fine lines, uneven skin texture, dull skin tone, sun damage, scars, and clogged pores. It is safe for all skin tone and types that need healthier, clearer skin. Microdermabrasion is most often used on the face, but it can also benefit the skin on your neck, chest, and hands. Microdermabrasion should not be performed on skin that has an open wound.
Microdermabrasion treatments are performed in our office after a thorough consultation to determine what services will provide your best results. For the treatment, you will relax in a comfortable chair as your technician cleans and prepares your skin. The microdermabrasion handpiece will be passed over your skin as the tool both polishes the skin and vacuums dead skin. While the treatment feels odd on the skin, it should not be painful. The technician will apply the treatment evenly over the chosen areas, with more care and sensitivity around the eyes. Once the microdermabrasion treatment is complete, the skin will be lightly cleansed to remove any residue before a protective moisturizer, selected for your skin type with sun protection, is applied.
What to Expect
After a microdermabrasion treatment, you can resume all your normal activities as long as you wear sunscreen or another form of sun protection. Your skin should feel smoother and your skin tone should be brighter and more even. To maintain your results, we typically recommend getting microdermabrasion treatments every 4 – 6 weeks. Many patients notice that after microdermabrasion treatments, their home skin care products, especially lotions and creams, absorb more easily into their skin for better results.
