What is Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion works by removing layers of dead skin to reveal softer, smoother, healthier skin. The treatment helps with the skin conditions that are most common in the Phoenix area, such as:

  • Dull complexion
  • Sun damage
  • Acne, such as blackheads and whiteheads
  • Fine lines
  • Clogged pores

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

A microdermabrasion treatment is a relaxing way to treat your skin. Dr. Taghizadeh recommends microdermabrasion to his patients for the following benefits:

  • Exceptional exfoliation
  • Treatment takes less than one hour
  • No downtime
  • Improves the complexion
  • Deep cleans the skin
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines
  • Safely reduces pore size

What Can I Expect from Microdermabrasion?

Many men and women believe that microdermabrasion is an uncomfortable treatment simply because of the name. After their first skin cleansing with microdermabrasion, though, they look forward to each and every treatment. Microdermabrasion works by delivering crushed diamond particles to the surface of the skin at a very high speed. The diamond particles loosen dead skin cells and debris. The hand piece also has a small suction device that removes the diamond particles, skin cells and other remnants from the surface of the skin. The procedure is very comfortable and relaxing.

How Microdermabrasion Differ from Other Types of Skin Resurfacing?

Dr. Taghizadeh recommends microdermabrasion to patients who need more of a superficial cleansing of the skin to improve their complexions. The treatment is gentle enough to be repeated each month.

Recovery from Microdermabrasion

The best part of microdermabrasion is that you have no downtime or recovery. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after the appointment. We do recommend that you wear a light sunscreen because your skin will be especially sensitive to the sun.

What Will Microdermabrasion Do for My Skin?

After your microdermabrasion treatment, your skin will have a healthy, beautiful glow. You will also notice that your skin is softer and smoother. The fine lines are less visible, and your pores are free of dirt and debris.

Will Everyone Benefit from Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is recommended for all skin types with the exception of patients who have certain medical conditions that affect the skin. If you have sunburn, Dr. Taghizadeh will recommend that you wait until your skin is healed from the sunburn.

How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost in Phoenix

Microdermabrasion is an elective treatment, so the cost is not covered by medical insurance. We accept payment by cash, check, major credit card and financing through Prosper® Healthcare Lending and CareCredit®.
