What is Microdermabrasion?
If you touch your face, does your complexion feel smooth and soft, or like sandpaper? If it feels rough, the surface layer of your skin may be cluttered with damaged skin cells that are making your complexion uneven and dull. At Bodian Dermatology, Dr. Adam Bodian and his team provide cosmetic services, like nonsurgical skin resurfacing with microdermabrasion. Effective and fast, microdermabrasion treatments remove the surface layer of damaged skin so your complexion is healthier and brighter. This procedure may be used on its own or along with a complementary procedure, such as a dermal filler or chemical peel, for greater results. During your consultation at our Great Neck, NY office, Dr. Bodian will develop a unique treatment plan for your specific skin concerns and cosmetic goals.

Ideal Candidates for Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion can reduce the look of surface skin blemishes, including fine lines, uneven texture, dull skin tone, clogged pores, scars, and sun damage. It is safe for people of every skin type and tone that want clearer, healthier skin. This treatment is typically used on the face; however, it may also benefit the skin on your neck, chest, and hands. This procedure should not be used on skin with an open wound or a chronic condition, such as rosacea or acne.
Our Microdermabrasion Technique
Microdermabrasion treatments are done at our office after a thorough consultation to decide what procedures will lead to your best results. During the treatment, you will be asked to sit back in a treatment chair as your skin is prepared. The microdermabrasion tool will run along your skin as it polishes and sucks up the crystals and dead skin. Although the treatment feels unusual, it not considered uncomfortable so you wouldn't need a numbing cream or local anesthesia. The microdermabrasion treatment will be applied evenly over the needed areas but with extra caution around the eyes. As soon as the treatment is complete, the skin will be cleaned to remove any residue before a moisturizer with UV protection, chosen for your skin type, is applied.
What to Expect After Treatment
Following a microdermabrasion treatment, you may get back to your normal activities, but you need to apply some form of sun protection since your newly soft skin will be sensitive. Your face will feel softer, and your tone will be brighter. To extend the results of your treatment, Dr. Bodian recommends scheduling a microdermabrasion treatment once every 4 – 6 weeks. Many Bodian Dermatology patients notice that after microdermabrasion treatments, their skin care products (especially moisturizers) absorb more easily into their skin for more effective results.
