Get your glow on with microdermabrasion
Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and wished your face had a healthy glow and even skin tone? Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that gently exfoliates skin.

Microdermabrasion is a popular treatment for both women and men in the Algonquin area, and is offered at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois.
Conditions that respond to microdermabrasion
With this, non-invasive procedure and can diminish the following skin problems:
- Melasma – gray/brown patches that often appear during pregnancy.
- Dull complexion.
- Age, sun, brown, and dark spots.
- Uneven skin tone.
- Rough texture.
Microdermabrasion treatment from a dermatologist is performed in a different manner than you could do with an at-home kit. In a sterile, clinical setting, our technician uses specialized equipment to exfoliate deeper into the skin. First your skin is thoroughly cleansed. Then, using a mobile hand piece, the clinician sprays fine crystals onto the surface of skin. The crystals are simultaneously vacuumed off, taking dull, dead surface cells with them. Skin is cleansed again, and moisturizer and sunscreen are applied. Treatment is relaxing and well-tolerated. There may be a little pinkness that resolves in a few hours, but there is essentially no downtime.
