What is Microdermabrasion?
Are you getting the results you want from your over-the-counter microdermabrasion creams and lotions at home? There are several benefits of having microdermabrasion treatments at Xage Medical Spa on your facial skin. In our office in Provo, UT, we use a special microdermabrasion instrument with suction to bring skin impurities to the surface for elimination. The debris is then vacuumed up by the tool and removed from the skin. Our board-certified physician, Dr. Stuart B. Porter, makes sure to have medical spa services like microdermabrasion for our aesthetics patients. Quick and effective, microdermabrasion removes the damaged skin so your complexion is healthier and looks brighter. This treatment can be used alone or with another skin treatment, like a chemical peel or dermal filler, for more dramatic results. During your initial consultation, we will come up with a personalized treatment plan based on your concerns.

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

Am I a Candidate for Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion treatments can reduce the appearance of blemishes on the skin's surface like fine lines, dull skin tone, uneven texture, scars, sun damage, and clogged pores. It is appropriate for men and women of every skin type and tone who would like healthier, clearer skin. These treatments are typically used on the face, but it may also be great for the skin on your hands, neck, and chest. Microdermabrasion should not be used on skin with an open wound or a chronic condition, such as rosacea or acne. If you’re considering microdermabrasion, you should know that we offer microdermabrasion treatments as a less invasive alternative to chemical peels.
Our Microdermabrasion Technique
Microdermabrasion treatments are completed in our office following a thorough consultation to determine what services will lead to the best results. During the treatment, you will lie back in a treatment chair as your skin is prepared. The microdermabrasion tool will pass over your skin as it both exfoliates and vacuums the dead skin and crystals. While the process may feel odd, it should not be uncomfortable. The treatment will be performed evenly in the selected areas, and with extra care on the delicate skin around the eyes. Once the treatment is over, your skin will be lightly cleaned to remove any residual debris before a moisturizer with sunscreen is massaged into your skin.
What to Expect with Microdermabrasion
Following a microdermabrasion session, you may resume your regular routine as long as you apply some form of sun protection, since your skin will be susceptible to sun damage. The treated areas will feel softer and the tone will be brighter and more even. To prolong the benefits, Dr. Porter suggests getting a microdermabrasion treatment once every 4 – 6 weeks. Many Xage Medical Spa patients notice that after microdermabrasion treatments, the skincare products they use at home (particularly moisturizers) soak easily into their skin for more effective results.
