Microdermabrasion in South Jersey

Removing dead skin cells can smooth out uneven skin and provide a healthy glow. South Jersey patients can now obtain microdermabrasion when they visit the Linwood, New Jersey office of board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Mohit Sood.

Sood Center offers Pristine™, the most advanced medical grade microdermabrasion treatment for the face and body.  Using genuine laser-cut diamond-tip applicators, Pristine™ exfoliates the skin surface while a gentle suction feature stimulates the production of collagen and elastin while improving blood circulation.

Your skin will look and feel clean, fresh and rejuvenated from the very first treatment.

What Is Microdermabrasion?

Diamond-peel microdermabrasion is a safe, non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure that deeply polishes and stimulates the skin using densely packed laser-cut diamonds to remove dead skin cells and promote the growth of healthy, new cells for a smoother, more radiant and flawless complexion.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion does not require the use of any medication whatsoever, so it can be performed on patients who have drug allergies. It is also effective at treating a number of conditions, including the following:

  • Acne and blackheads
  • Age spots
  • Sunspots / Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin texture

Microdermabrasion also stimulates the production of collagen to help firm and tighten your skin. This procedure can be performed on a regular basis to maintain results, with the exact procedure frequency being determined by Dr. Sood and his knowledgeable team.

How Is Microdermabrasion Performed?

Genuine, laser-cut diamond tips gently abrade the upper epidermal layer of the skin to polish the skin surface while a vacuum control stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.  The combination of vacuum and pressure ensure diamond-peel uniformity and allow for personalized exfoliation treatments, according to skin type.

Preparing for Microdermabrasion

Before undergoing microdermabrasion, you should make sure there are no open sores or wounds on your face. You should also avoid taking any medications that make your skin feel sensitive. Refrain from having chemical peels performed shortly before your microdermabrasion appointment since they also remove dead skin cells and might make your skin feel more sensitive.

What does Microdermabrasion Feel Like?

Microdermabrasion does not hurt. While you may feel a slight tugging on your skin, the treatment is non-invasive, virtually painless, and requires no downtime.  You will enjoy a comfortable and quiet treatment with Pristine.

Recovery from Microdermabrasion

Your skin may feel swollen and appear red for a day or so after your procedure. During this time, avoid wearing makeup, and limit your sun exposure as much as possible. Keep your skin well moisturized, and drink plenty of water to avoid becoming dehydrated.

When will I see Results from Microdermabrasion?

Results can be seen and felt after the very first treatment with an improvement in skin texture and appearance.  An overall, gradual improvement can be expected as treatment course progresses.

How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost?

Cost will depend on the number of treatments recommended. Dr. Sood’s team will discuss your cost and treatment plan with you during your consultation. We accept cash, personal checks, major credit cards, and CareCredit® financing as forms of payment.

Is Microdermabrasion Right for Me?
