Detroit, MI – Sunbathers are well aware of the effects the sun can have on the skin.
Spend a little time in the sun and you get a nice healthy tan.
Too much sun, on the other hand, can leave you looking much older than your years.
When the skin has taken a beating from the sun, one plastic surgeon suggests a technique that many are raving about.
“Microdermabrasion is a simple technique that can make a person look years younger and restore a healthy glow to the skin,” says Plastic Surgeon Dr. M Azhar Ali who operates AMAE Plastic Surgery Center in Detroit.
Dr. Ali is referring to one of the most popular choices among patients for improving the appearance of dull, aged or uneven skin.
The procedure is a favorite of patients because it is fairly affordable and doesn’t involve any invasive cosmetic procedures.
“Patients like microdermabrasion because it addresses a person’s flaws on the surface level, only treating the outermost layer of skin,” says Dr. Ali.
Using a handheld machine known as the diamond tome device attached to suction tubing, the plastic surgeon will gently exfoliate the patient’s skin, which removes dead skin cells and reveals the healthy younger skin underneath.
Nearly 900,000 microdermabrasion techniques were performed in 2014, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the number of patients opting for the treatments have steadily risen since then.
When asked to delve deeper into the specifics of the procedure, Dr. Ali says, “The treatment is quick, relatively painless and is safe for all skin types.”
The treatment is also incredibly versatile. Not only can it be used on sun damaged skin, but it can also treat textured skin, acne, acne scars, and minimize large pores.
As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, Dr. Ali suggests that more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or completely remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.
“By the end of the treatment phases, however, a patient can look good as new,” Dr. Ali says.
