Mechanical Exfoliation or Microdermabrasion in Annapolis
Annapolis residents of all ages are seeking mechanical exfoliation to rejuvenate the overall appearance of their skin. This skin treatment is a gentle, non-surgical procedure designed to remove the dead outer layer of your skin, allowing the smooth, softer skin underneath to come to the surface. After treatment, the underlying epidermis immediately looks and feels smoother and more radiant. Regular treatments can also improve the appearance of scarring and skin discoloration.
Mechanical Exfoliation works well on all colors of skin to reverse the signs of aging, sun damage and discoloration that may occur over time in men and women living in Maryland.
Mechanical Exfoliation is a popular option to minimize or correct the following skin conditions:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars or age spots
- Enlarged or oily pores
- Superficial pigmentation

Procedure for Microdermabrasion
With the use of a hand-held device, microdermabrasion involves the high-speed flow of aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin in a safe and uniform manner in order to exfoliate the top dead layers of skin. The loose crystals and dead skin are then vacuumed away, successfully completing the microdermabrasion procedure. Maryland residents choosing this treatment typically do not require sedation.
Microdermabrasion Recovery and Results
Upon completion of a microdermabrasion procedure in any of our PSS MediSpa locations (Annapolis or Easton), patients may experience a pinkish hue that heals into a healthy glow within hours. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after this treatment.
Patients who receive a microdermabrasion treatment will see smoother, more even-toned skin. Scars and discoloration will be lighter, pores will appear to be smaller, and there will be a noticeable reduction in wrinkles. You’ll be able to leave Plastic Surgery Specialists with radiant skin and added confidence.
Microdermabrasion Insurance Considerations
Microdermabrasion is considered a cosmetic procedure in nature and is not covered by insurance. Each patient is responsible for the costs of treatment.
