Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure designed to improve the texture and appearance of the skin. It involves the mechanical exfoliation of the outermost layer of skin using a specialized device. This procedure is commonly performed on the face but can also be applied to other areas of the body.

Microdermabrasion is a popular skincare treatment that offers numerous benefits for patients seeking to improve the appearance and health of their skin. By gently exfoliating the outer layer of dead skin cells, microdermabrasion can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone.

At the Skin Care Loft of Macaione and Papa, our expert skin providers offer microdermabrasion as a healthy, effective treatment to give you the glowing skin of your dreams. Learn more and schedule an appointment with us in the Delaware Valley today.

Microdermabrasion is commonly used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and uneven skin texture.

Microdermabrasion is generally not painful. Patients may feel a mild scratching or vibrating sensation during the procedure.

The procedure typically takes 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

Results can vary, but multiple sessions are usually recommended for optimal results, spaced a few weeks apart.

Microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin's surface, improving texture, and addressing superficial concerns. Microneedling involves tiny needles to stimulate collagen, reducing fine lines and improving overall skin tone. While both enhance skin quality, microdermabrasion focuses on exfoliation, while microneedling targets deeper skin layers for a more rejuvenating effect.
