Question: I am male and I would like to have my skin refreshed. It is not smooth and I have developed fine wrinkles around my mouth. I am very much interested in microdermabrasion. Is this an expensive procedure? Do I need more than one treatment?
Answer: Microdermabrasion can certainly improve a patient’s overall skin condition, but it does have some limitations. For one, I do not expect fine lines around the mouth to greatly improve through the use of microdermabrasion, but if we perform microdermabrasion on a regular monthly basis in combination with good skin care you should see a very nice improvement in your overall skin quality. If this modality does not adequately treat your concerning areas, then I would recommend a consultation so that we can go over some other options.
