The skin is the largest organ of our body. It protects us from environmental elements such as UVA, UVB rays, harsh temperatures, and regulates our body temperature. Every day the cells in our skin turn over and make new ones. As we age, this process slows down and in turn the blotches, sun spots, and other aging problems become apparent. Microdermabrasion treatments help rejuvenate, revitalize, and clean the skin to make it look naturally healthier.
What is a microdermabrasion?
A microdermabrasion, also known as a microderm, is a painless and non-invasive procedure usually performed with a facial. As a result, it delivers a comprehensive approach to skin care that is non-surgical, safe, and highly effective. At Atlanta MediSpa and Surgery Center, we use the new diamond-tip technology, which is very gentle. This procedure requires little to no downtime as it leaves the skin smooth, soft, and fresh for a rejuvenated youthful glow.
Who should have microderm treatments?
If you are suffering from age spots, acne scars, or wrinkles, you might be a great candidate for a microdermabrasion. A microderm will stimulate the lower layers of the skin to produce new skin cells, which over time create a smoother and more youthful appearance. As a result, microderms ultimately encourage the production of elastin and collagen. For those who can’t afford to take time off for healing, don’t want to take time off from outdoor activity, or have skin sensitivities, this procedure has no downtime and requires minimal aftercare. This non invasive treatment lightly invigorates and polishes the outermost layer of skin, using the new diamond tip technology, which is gentle and efficient. Microderms, when combined with our medical grade skin care products, will maximize your results!
What type of microdermabrasion does Atlanta Medispa use?

How safe is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure which removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells. This allows for your youthful beauty to shine through and will show results regardless of previous skin appearance. This procedure is aimed at combatting age spots, fine lines, and even stretch marks and scars.
How do I preserve the results of the procedure?
Caring for your skin and keeping it healthy requires a consistent daily skin care regimen. It is important to always wear a sun protectant of at least SPF 30 as the sun can do great damage to your skin. Preserving your skin with high quality products, such as cleansers and moisturizers, is essential to healthy looking skin as well. Ask your licensed, medical esthetician for recommendations on the best products for your skin. Also ask us about the special money saving packages we offer!
What do the treatments consist of?
Microdermabrasion is a very gentle, slow, and gradual procedure. The treatments are calming to most patients, and they leave feeling very relaxed. A small hand piece is used to superficially “polish” the skin and will leave you feeling amazing in thirty minutes to an hour! Due to the short time the treatment takes, it’s perfect for everyone, even those in a rush! To see the best results, it is recommended to schedule microdermabrasions every 4-6 weeks. Most patients want to perfect their experience and add on waxing or threading to be rid of excess facial hair.
How quickly are results evident?
Results can be seen immediately after the treatment is finished. Skin will look fresh, healthy, and smooth. In conclusion, microdermabrasion is a safe, efficient way to polish the skin. Call and book your appointment today, 678-213-2220.
