SmartPeel microdermabrasion works by gently buffing the skin's surface by using light pressure and ultra fine particles. This gently refines the epidermal layer leaving the skin smooth and more youthful. This procedure is wonderful for people with sensitive skin and for patients with darker skin. In just one treatment, microdermabrasion visibly refines and polishes the surface of the skin. With minimal healing time, patients who have had SmartPeels have reported an improvement in the appearance their skin tone, wrinkling, and acne scars.
Specialized (comedo) extractors are used to open, drain, and remove the contents of acne lesions. Multiple lesions can be removed per session. May require repeated sessions. If you are considering this surgery, discuss the risks, such as scarring and infection, with Dr. Quarles.
