The Indiana Eye Clinic was founded in 1979 and is serving the state of Indiana, through its two offices - one in Greenwood and one in Plainfield. They offer, among other procedures: Cool Touch laser, blepharoplasty, Radiesse, microdermabrasion, laser hair modification and tattoo removal, treatments for rejuvenate aging skin & sun-damaged skin. California Peel is the particular type of microdermabrasion treatment they perform.
A: You must stop using Retinol products for 14 days before microderma abrasion treatment because Retinol makes the skin more sensitive and the combined effect can cause irritations and scarring. This applies to personal kits and dermatologist-performed treatment.
A: By removing the top layer of skin, microdemabrasion pulverizes away the dead skin layer (the outermost layer) in order to even out skin texture and pimple scarring. Deeper pimple scars needs more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peels or laser facial resurface.
A: Micro dermabration works by sandblasting the outermost skin layer but cannot abrade deeper skin layers where tattooed skin cells are which is why it cannot remove tattoos. Tatoo removal needs laser or surgical procedures which are invasive enough to reach pigmented skin cells.
A: The right candidate for microdermabrastion is anyone over 14 who wants to get rid of superficial acne scars, blotchy skin, large pores, age or sun spots, fine wrinkles or uneven skin tone and texture. All skin types and colors can be treated with microdermbrasion. But if you are pregnant, nursing or suffering from a chronic skin disease, or have been on Accutane or had laser surgery recently, consult with a specialist before having this treatment.
A: Rosacea is one of the main contraindications of microdermabrasion, because the exfoliation process worsens rosacea symptoms (redness, itchiness, flaking). Self microderma sets are not recommended either (even though they are milder).
A: By exfoliating the top layer of the skin, cosmetic microderm abrasion kit cleans deep into the pore and removes excess oil and dirt which causes clogged pores. Most pores are unclogged while the more stubborn ones become less visible.
A: Compared to other non-surgical procedures, dermatologist-performed microdermabrasions is the least expensive skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, microdermabration kits cost between $15 and $200, depending on contents and brand. Kits that include a rotating hand-held device designed to massage the crystal cream onto your face are the most expensive (and the most effective). The price of a single microdermabasion treatment at a beauty salon or spa varies between $75 and $200. One full face session at a surgeon or dermatologist office costs somewhere between $100 and $300, not including initial consultation fees (which may cost an additional $150). You may need an average of 9 treatments and 4 maintenance sessions for best results which makes a full micro dermal abrasion treatment cost around $1,600 per year.
A: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Microdermabrasions system stimulates collagen production, essential to a beautiful face complexion and also evens out skin texture and tone.
A: Laser resurfacing is more invasive and also more effective on deeper skin imperfections. Microderm abrasian gives better results on superficial scars, lines and stretch marks.
A: There is no official contraindication regarding age for microbrasion patients, but it would be best to wait until you are 14 before you have it. If you have it earlier, the hormonal changes and the fact that your skin hasn't yet fully formed all of its recovering systems may affect the final outcome of the treatment.
