    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  • What Is Microdermabrasion?

    Microdermabrasion by Euro-peel

    Microdermabrasion is the latest and most successful scientific method of treatment for damaged skin. Micronized crystals derived from minerals are used to remove dead and flaking skin cells. In the hands of a Musto Medical experienced technician, an instrument known as the Europeel, directs this stream of tiny crystals onto the skin. As the skin cells are abraded, a small vacuum the size of a pencil removes the crystals along with the upper, outermost layer of the skin. Your skin will experience a tingling sensation and the surface will feel smooth and soft. This results in the production of collagen and new skin cells.

  • What Are Benefits Of Microdermabrasion?

    The Benefits

    Microdermabrasion can improve many unsightly surface conditions that have previously required several different treatments. Microdermabrasion requires less time and less discomfort than most skin treatments, so recovery time is rapid and any normal activities can be resumed immediately.

    Microdermabrasion is safe and effective on most parts of the body and if desired can be used in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures as well. Some skin improvements include:

    • The removal and/or reduction of age spots
    • Diminishing of wrinkles and fine lines
    • Removal of blackheads and whiteheads
    • Reduction of acne scars
    • Improvement of dull and rough skin
    • Fresher, younger, smoother looking skin.
  • How Long Is The Microdermabrasion Procedure?

    The average treatment is usually completed in fifteen minutes. Treatments can be repeated every 10 days, indefinitely. The number of treatments varies depending on the skin problem and results desired.

  • How Do I Prepare For Microdermabrasion?

    There is no preparation necessary, but for a two-week period prior to your microdermabrasion procedure, skin treatments such as tanning, chemical peels, collagen injections, etc. are not advised.

  • What Results Can One Expect?

    With the very first treatment, the patient’s skin shows noticeable improvement. Wrinkles, age spots and fine lines diminish as the skin takes on a brighter more radiant glow. Acne scars are less noticeable and the skin looks generally fresher. Dr. Musto may recommend some special cleansers and moisturizers due to a loss of moisture during the procedure. Some patients may experience some redness as well as tightening of the skin, similar to mild sunburn. This should only last for a short period of time and should not create discomfort. There have been no side effects associated with the treatment and healing time is usually a few hours to a few days. Dr. Musto highly recommends microdermabrasion for people of all ages
