HomeAesthetics and Skin Rejuvenation Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion in Brentwood, TN

Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective anti-aging treatment that removes dead skin cells and cosmetic flaws to restore a more youthful and healthier appearance. Cool Springs MD specializes in microdermabrasion treatments for men and women in Brentwood, Nashville and surrounding communities in Tennessee.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Looking your best means having vibrant, youthful skin. For many of our patients, traditional professional-grade skin rejuvenation, such as laser resurfacing and chemical peels, are not the best therapies for every patient’s special concerns.

For anyone seeking an alternative to invasive surgical skin rejuvenating procedures, microdermabrasion is designed to revitalize skin by using a gentle blasting technique with fine crystals. As the microdermabrasion device removes dead skin cells with an exfoliation process, a vacuum suctions the debris.

After undergoing microdermabrasion, patients have a more youthful appearance with a soft and even skin texture. Microdermabrasion promotes the formation of new cells in the deepest or basal layer of the epidermis as it removes dirt from the pores, helping to improve a patient’s skin. The gentle exfoliation of upper skin tissue stimulates the production of collagen, leading to firmer skin without fine lines.

Microdermabrasion is suitable for dark or light skin colors to improve the skin located on several areas of the body, including:

  • Hands
  • Knees
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Neck
  • Face

Microdermabrasion offers exceptional benefits, such as:

  • Reduction of wrinkles to create a younger appearance
  • Reduction of acne break outs and improved skin health to avoid blemishes
  • Reduction of stretch marks after pregnancy or weight loss
  • Diminish pore size or acne scars to improve skin texture
  • Creating smoother skin to have a healthy glow

For patients experiencing the earliest signs of aging from sunlight damage or other small imperfections, microdermabrasion is a convenient procedure to improve your appearance. Microdermabrasion is noninvasive, leaving no ugly scars. The procedure is painless while requiring an hour or less to complete. Most patients can return to their daily activities immediately with no recovery time needed. The procedure is gentle enough that patients can apply lotions or makeup immediately without any discomfort.

BONUS: UV Sun Damage Screening Included

We are all aging, all the time, even young children. But, sometimes we need to see to believe. While we could not survive without the sun, it can damage our skin. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to peer inside our own bodies and check out the health of our lungs. It’s also difficult to see the effects sun exposure is having on our skin, especially when a tan can look so deceptively like a healthy glow. For years, one of the best-known tools to view sun damage has been very expensive: ultraviolet photography.

UV photography reveals markings not visible to the naked eye. The Visia Complexion Analysis System uses a black light to help trained staff determine inflammation, hydration levels and keratinization (dead surface cells).

At Cool Springs MD, as part of our exfoliation process, we offer a free near UV image showing the health of your skin today. Becoming aware of damage hidden below the skin’s surface positions you for options to treat and reverse the damage!

How Do I Prepare for the Procedure?

Preparing for microdermabrasion is easy as long as you avoid getting sunburned or using products that contain Retin-A for a few days before the procedure.

Am I a Candidate for the Procedure?

People with sensitivities to chemicals used in other skin rejuvenation procedures or acne care products are perfect candidates for microdermabrasion. The ideal candidate for microdermabrasion is someone living an active lifestyle without the time for chemical peels and laser resurfacing.
