Microdermabrasion Treatment in DC & Virginia

Discover the Age Management Resources Washington DC Relies On

Microdermabrasion, developed in Italy in 1987 and introduced to the United States in the mid-nineties, is used as a form of mechanical exfoliation of the skin. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Richard Giannotto at the Giannotto Clinic and find out why microdermabrasion is the popular anti-aging treatment Washington DC counts on for smoother, younger-looking skin.


How Microdermabrasion Works

Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular age management procedures available in the skincare field today for three reasons: it is simple, it is effective and, unlike other types of invasive plastic surgeries, it requires little down time. As the premier anti-aging clinic in Washington DC, the Giannotto Clinic is proud to offer this service among a range of skincare options to clients.

During microdermabrasion, a powerful machine sprays an exfoliant directly onto the skin. The machine acts like an electronic vacuum, spraying high grade micro-crystals across the skin’s surface through a glass wand. An abrasion mechanism gently removes dead skin buildup, improving circulation and skin cell turnover — and resulting in smoother skin.

Is Microdermabrasion Right for You?

Microdermabrasion stimulates dermal changes and removes the outer layer of skin-stratum corneum, making it appropriate for both aging skin and those who suffer from acne. It also reduces hyper-pigmentation as well as hyperkeratinization. Because microder
mabrasion removes the outermost layer of skin cells, topical products designed to lessen the appearance of lines, discoloration and other skin imperfections work more effectively following a regular treatment regimen.

Microdermabrasion is effective in a series of six treatments, each separated by seven to ten days. The results include smoother skin with fewer lines and wrinkles and a reduction in oiliness and appearance of large pores. The treatment is more efficacious with a Vitamin A or Vitamin C peel beforehand. A single treatment is known as the “Lunchtime Peel,” which means that the client can be treated during his/her lunch hour and return directly to work.
