Whether you are someone who scrutinizes their skin under harsh lighting and a magnifying mirror or have casually noticed you would like to consider skin treatment for your; aging skin including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars or blemishes, or other skin issues from dullness and brown spots to stretch marks and minor scarring, microdermabrasion may be the solution. Other skin conditions including thickened or peeling skin, as well as broken capillaries on your face may also benefit from the use of microdermabrasion. Dr. Ghatan offers patients in and around Brooklyn microdermabrasion treatments as part of the many skin care services he provides to ensure your skin looks healthy, glowing and vibrant.
While Dr. Ghatan will provide you with an in-depth consultation prior to your Brooklyn microdermabrasion, the process is not painful and does not require the use of any topical anesthesia. In fact, patients are often able to leave our office and immediately return to their regular daily activities with limited redness or swelling, depending on your level of sensitivity and treated skin condition. For your protection, we administer microdermabrasion in a sterile treatment room with tools that may be sterilized or disposed of following your service. The actual steps of a microdermabrasion treatment include the use of a stream of fine crystals which are vacuumed over your skin’s surface resulting in the removal of damaged and dead skin cells. Following the procedure, your skin may feel tight and some patients may experience some peeling. Your therapist will recommend proper home care products as well as any required moisturizer. Keep in mind, your skin is now newly exposed and should be treated with delicate care.
To begin the journey to healthy and youthful looking skin, contact our personable and knowledgeable team of professionals to schedule an initial consultation prior to your Brooklyn microdermabrasion appointment with Dr. Ghatan. We welcome any questions you may have as a new patient to our practice as well as concerns regarding microdermabrasion and your skin. Our entire professional team looks forward to meeting with you soon and determining the best course of action for treating your naturally beautiful skin with microdermabrasion.
