Non-invasive Microdermabrasion Can Reaveal Brighter, Healthier Skin
Every day our skin is exposed to environmental and health elements that can leave our skin marked and dull. For those not wanting to undergo surgery or extensive procedures, Dr. David Passaretti offers microdermabrasion at his Darien, CT, office to rejuvenate your skin. This non-invasive treatment uses a diamond-embedded tip or tiny exfoliating crystals to gently remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells. Newer, healthier tissues are then able to develop. As a result, you can enjoy younger, healthier-looking skin. The procedure involves minimal discomfort and no recovery time, making microdermabrasion convenient and hassle-free. Contact our office today to find out if you are a candidate.
Are You a Candidate?
You may be a good candidate for microdermabrasion if you want to address:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots
- Large pores
- Acne and minor acne scars
- Clogged pores
Microdermabrasion is a conservative treatment and cannot address deep scars and lines or extreme sun damage. If you desire more dramatic results without surgery, Dr. Passaretti can recommend alternative skin procedures such as a glycolic or chemical peel.
The Microdermabrasion Procedure
During microdermabrasion, we will use a special tool with either a diamond-embedded tip or microscopic crystals that are directed at your skin through a steady stream of air. Both methods will exfoliate the top layer of dead skin and clear your pores. The procedure involves little more than a warming sensation, which is not uncomfortable for most patients. You may also feel a gentle vibration, comparable to a facial massage.
Each layer of dead skin that is removed can encourage another healthier layer to develop. As a result, you may need to undergo multiple procedures for optimal results. Each session will last about 30 minutes to an hour and the number of treatments depends on the condition of your skin and desired results.
After treatment, your skin may be slightly pink and sensitive, but discomfort will be minimal. There is no downtime required, and many patients are able to return to work immediately after treatment. However, to prevent skin damage, you will need to use moisturizer and sunscreen, and avoid large amounts of direct sunlight after your treatment.
Microdermabrasion allows younger layers of skin to take the place of the old, damaged tissues. The new skin can be stronger and can produce more collagen for greater elasticity and youthful aesthetics.
Results and Benefits

You may also notice that minor skin blemishes are significantly less noticeable.
Because the procedure is more conservative than other skin rejuvenation options, it involves minimal discomfort and no recovery time. It is also more affordable than more extensive rejuvenation options. Finally, because microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure, it is safe to undergo regular touch-ups.
