Microdermabrasion is a system that allows a jet of inert, natural, aluminum oxide crystals to be brushed onto the surface of the skin where it abrades dry, dead or redundant cell tissue with little trauma, but with high precision which had therefore been unattainable with other techniques.

Feel free to schedule a complimentary consultation with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas M. Senderoff, MD, FACS, at his Westchester or Manhattan, New York office to answer any questions or concerns you may have about dermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion is beneficial for the following problems:

Aging Skin

  • fine lines
  • wrinkles
  • brown spots
  • pigmentation

Acne Skin

  • acne scars
  • congested skin
  • enlarged pores
  • blemished skin

Devitalized Skin

  • dull skin
  • thickened skin
  • brown spots

Microdermabrasion is performed in our safe, peaceful and relaxing facility in Manhattan, New York on Park Avenue South. The procedure is performed by our skin care specialists and consists of the dead skin cells, along with the crystals being immediately "sucked" or vacuumed back into the handpiece which flows back through soft, plastic tubes to the aspirator - which provides both the force of velocity of the crystals against the skin and the reverse removal of the skin cells by suction. All of this activity is performed in seconds - allowing the therapist to move in precise patterns. The therapist has total control over the velocity force of the crystals and also the suction force which can increase the abrasion to a progressive deeper level (near the peripheral capillaries) or decrease the abrasion to affect only the stratum corneum leaving light trails of pinkish stria which vanish in a few minutes.

If you have any questions about Microdermabrasion, or any other plastic surgery procedures please feel free to contact Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas M. Senderoff, MD, FACS,  at our Manhattan or Westchester, New York offices.
