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 definitely would recommend coming to Xage."- A.R. / Google / Sep 29, 2020
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
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.
