“My experience was that the staff was completely professional and made me feel comfortable. They explained to me from start to finish and made me feel at ease. The treatment was better than I expected. I came into the office feeling and looking tired and came out feeling refreshed and looking so much better. I definitely recommend Dr. Pearlman.”

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion, also referred to as micro-diamondbrasion is a term used when tiny rough grains are applied to the skin to buff away the dead cells of the surface layer. It is a cosmetic procedure to improve the appearance of your facial skin as well as that of your neck, arms and hands.

To understand micro-diamondbrasion, a little lesson in how your skin is made up may be helpful…

Your skin is made up basically of two top layers, the epidermis that is the outer, protective layer of skin and the dermis, consisting of the underlying connective tissue.

Using micro-diamondbrasion techniques has proven to be a safe, painless, non-invasive treatment to clean out clogged pores as well as an extremely useful alternative if you suffer from sensitivity to acne products.

Who makes the best microdermabrasion candidate?

Anyone who is unhappy with their skin’s texture or tone, or who is suffering from sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scarring may be an excellent candidate for microdermabrasion with Dr. Pearlman. Even those in their 20’s who have not yet seen the full implication of aging can benefit from this wonderful solution.

What will my recovery entail?

With microdermabrasion, there is virtually no downtime whatsoever. You will be able to return to your day’s activities immediately after your session. It is even safe to use makeup right away. As always, Dr. Pearlman cautions you to use sunblock when exposed to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, as this will help preserve the best results from your microdermabrasion treatment for the long-term.

What is the cost of microdermabrasion?

The cost for microdermabrasion varies based on the complexity of the work performed, and on whether any additional skincare treatments are employed in tandem, such as the application of antioxidant serums, or dermal fillers. In general, patients will need around 6-8 sessions to see comprehensive improvement in their skin. Remember that undergoing microdermabrasion under the guidance of a double board certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Pearlman in NYC will guarantee the most advanced, transformative results.
