Microdermabrasion in Pittsburgh: It is considered skin polishing where the superficial layer of skin is gently abraded away giving an overall fresh healthy glow. Microdermabrasion is useful in treating dull skin and leathery skin, reduce mild acne scaring, smooth fine wrinkles, even skin tone and exfoliate plugged pores. Microdermabrasion stimulates the production of skin cells and collagen which gives the skin its youthful appearance. Here at Golla Center for Plastic Surgery and Spa we use Medical Grade FDA Approved Aluminum Oxide (Corundum) Crystals which are a harder crystal (second to diamond) than Sodium Bi-carbonate commonly used at other spas.
The results may be subtle for the first treatment, but it is a good alternative for people with skin that is sensitive to chemical peels. This procedure can be a great compliment prior to any Chemical Peel or Laser Skin Treatment as well as combined with a SkinCeuticals Facial Treatment.
