Microdermabrasion: A More Radiant Complexion

Trusted Skin Renewal In Pittsburgh

It is possible to regenerate the skin and enhance your natural beauty with microdermabrasion by Dr. Roxana Barad. She is a double board-certified physician and aesthetician with over 20 years of experience. Dr. Barad is passionate about skin rejuvenation and the science behind it.

The Aesthetic Skin and Laser Center was born from her desire to make skincare accessible to patients throughout Pittsburgh, PA. Many patients consult with her to discuss treatment options for a variety of cosmetic procedures.

These treatments include chemical peeling,microneedling, dermablading, permanent makeup, facials, and microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates the skin, stimulates collagen production and consistently leaves her patients with a smoother, younger-looking complexion.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

The crystal microdermabrasion machine is a highly effective, and medically-reviewed technique. The technology treats fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, sun damage and age spots. It gently exfoliates the top layer of the skin to regenerate the outer layer. This process results in a 30% increase in skin elasticity.

The procedure is performed with a diamond tip wand that removes dead and damaged skin cells and stimulates the collagen beneath the skin's surface. After only one 45-minute session, patients have smoother skin, an improvement in skin texture and a noticeable improvement in pore size.

Ideal Candidates

While the procedure is minimally-invasive, some precautions still need to be taken. Therefore, a consultation is required to determine if you are a candidate and meet some of the following requirements:

  • You are in good health
  • You have scars, fine lines, sun damage, or skin conditions such as rosacea
  • You have realistic expectations

Is There Downtime After Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion involves no downtime. ‌Even though we encourage women not to wear makeup the rest of the day, it can be put on right after the treatment if necessary. ‌The peeling is minimal compared to other exfoliating treatments because the buildup skin is removed during the ‌treatment.

After your session, you should wear sunscreen, stay out of the sun and be sure to protect and hydrate your skin with moisturizer. Dr. Barad has her own skincare shop that can help with keeping your skin healthy and vibrant.
