Microdermabrasion is a popular exfoliation treatment that gently resurfaces the skin. While it can improve the appearance of fine lines and age spots, it can’t treat deep wrinkles or sagging skin. If you’re after nonsurgical approaches to combat aging, injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers are excellent options.
The team at Dolce Vida Medical Spa, with offices in Westport, Trumbull, and Hamden, Connecticut, provides a full array of medical aesthetic services to help you look as good and vibrant as you feel. Scheduling a visit with one of our providers is the best way to learn more about how we can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. In this post you’ll learn how microdermabrasion improves the appearance of skin and what you can do to combat the signs of aging.
Microdermabrasion improves skin’s appearance
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive skin-resurfacing procedure that gently removes the top layers of skin to reveal smooth, healthier-looking skin. It can be used to treat:
- Sun damage
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
Removing the top layer of skin stimulates collagen production. The body goes to work replacing the lost skin cells with healthy ones. If your skin is dull and lifeless, microdermabrasion can restore its glow by clearing clogged pores and removing old skin cells, leaving you with a smoother, revitalized appearance.
Microdermabrasion can rejuvenate aging skin, but it’s important to know that the results are subtle. For more dramatic results, we recommend injectables.
Combating the signs of aging
The team at Dolce Vida Medical Spa specialize in cosmetic injectables. We offer a full spectrum of injectables to turn back the clock and restore youthful-looking skin.
Botox® is extremely effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Made of a highly purified form of the botulinum neurotoxin, Botox temporarily relaxes muscles involved in making facial expressions. When you smile, laugh, or frown, facial muscles contract, causing wrinkles to develop over time. Botox helps to erase the signs of aging, improving the appearance of:
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines
- Forehead wrinkles
- Lipstick lines
- Smile lines
Botox provides natural-looking results that last 3-4 months.
Along with Botox, dermal fillers are the most requested nonsurgical anti-aging procedure. We offer a range of dermal fillers, each with unique benefits. Dermal fillers combat the signs of aging by restoring lost volume. As you age the skin produces a lower amount of hydrating substances.
Instead of plump, youthful cheeks, you’re left with a sunken, worn-out appearance. Dermal fillers treat volume loss by strategically injecting hydrating substances back into the skin to fill out your face and restore a younger-looking appearance.
