What is Microdermabrasion?

Smiling Woman with Clear Face | Microdermabrasion | Dr. List Bunin | Allentown PADoes your skin have a dull, thickened look? Want to regain the smooth, polished, youthful skin you had years ago? Microdermabrasions, also known as lunch time peels, mega peels or precision peels, are one of the most requested non-invasive cosmetic procedures to do just that. Microdermabrasions are the safest most natural way to exfoliate the skin without chemicals or lasers. Dr. Bunin uses the mega peel, a fifth generation microdermabrasion system that is gentler and more effective than other systems.

Microdermabrasion: Peeling and Improving Skin

Mega peels are suitable for any skin type and anyone interested in minimizing the appearance of scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, dull, lifeless and sun damaged skin.

Microdermabrasion is the use of fine crystals to precisely remove dead skin cells, layer by layer, until fresh new cells appear. Normal skin has many layers that naturally exfoliate (move to the surface and shed) every 15-20 days. Aging, environment, nutrition, and even cosmetics inhibit exfoliation. As a result, the dead skin cells remain on our skin causing a dull, aged appearance.

With a series of customized microdermabrasion treatments, you can significantly improve your skin without any down time. Mega peels can help you to achieve more beautiful skin without the pain and irritation of chemical peels.

Microdermabrasion: Smoother Skin

Initially you will notice smoother skin with mega peel treatments. However, the program is specifically designed for you to achieve long-term results when combined with the daily use of medical-grade skin care products. By using the mega peel to thin the epidermis, skin care products such as retinoids, glycolic acids, moisturizers and hydroquinones can penetrate to the deeper cells of the dermis, and work more quickly and effectively to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, correct pigment abnormalities, and improve skin tone. The mega peel also stimulates collagen and elastin production in deeper tissue, which tightens skin and produces long lasting results. Depending on the initial condition of your skin, full results usually occur within two to six months.

Dr. Bunin tailors each treatment to your personal needs. Using lower settings and fewer scans, she can provide a gentle precise mega peel treatment, resulting in moderate exfoliation and little to no skin irritation. For a more aggressive peel, Dr. Bunin increases the setting, time, and peel abrasiveness.

Commitment to the treatment series along with regular use of the skin care products is essential for success.
