When you run your hands over your face, does your skin feel soft and smooth or rough like sand paper? If it feels rough, the top layer of your skin may be cluttered with dead skin cells that are making your complexion dull and uneven. At Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute, we are proud to offer cosmetic services like noninvasive skin resurfacing with microdermabrasion. Fast and effective, microdermabrasion treatments remove the outer layer of damaged and dead skin so your complexion is brighter and healthier. This procedure can be used alone or with another cosmetic treatment, like a dermal filler or chemical peel, for more dramatic improvements. During your consultation, one of our experienced aestheticians will create a unique treatment plan for your specific skin concerns and cosmetic goals.
"My teenage daughter and I are both patients of Dr. Kasper. The reception area is modern and bright. The reception area staff is always welcoming. Dr. Kasper is friendly and efficient. Wait time is short, which I appreciate. I am thinking about booking an aesthetician appointment or two in the near future."- M.A. / Yelp / Jun 30, 2019
"Woowwwww! Went in for a while body exam because I gave fair skin. Best experience I have had at a dermatologist, or maybe at any doctors office ever. So clean. Punctual. Organized. Pleasant. The PA Amy that I saw was personable, pleasant and knowledgeable! What a tremendously positive experience! Would highly recommend !"- M.S. / Yelp / Feb 26, 2020

"Absolutely a positive experience. The office is really well designed. I walked in and was greeted and taken care of right away. The woman doing my registration was very nice. The doctor (Dr. Manion) was friendly and all business. Took care of my issue that day in less than 5 minutes. Pain free. Solid explanations. Great doctor. Scheduling a follow up was easy too. Amanda made it seamless and simple."- B.M. / Google / Feb 14, 2020
"I am new to this practice so I have only been there twice so I cannot make an overall rating yet. I will say that the check in receptionist was great. There was a discrepancy with my copay, the woman double checked the information and verified on her end what she was seeing which was incorrect. She then took me at my word and charged me the copay that I paid last time in case what I was saying was accurate. I confirmed later with the office building department (which was also a very pleasant and positive phone call) The front desk woman did not argue and neither did I. It was just a very pleasant transaction that in my experience with payment does not happen very often so it was refreshing and I am very grateful to her. Same thing with the billing department Jennifer I believe was very patient, kind, and helpful. Even though I've only been here for 2 visits so far top notch help and service. I truly appreciate what everyone has done for me so far."- J.B. / Google / Jan 30, 2020
Microdermabrasion Ideal Candidates
Microdermabrasion treatments can improve the appearance of many types of surface skin issues, including dull skin tone, fine lines, uneven texture, clogged pores, scars, and sun damage. It is safe for people of all skin tones and types that want healthier, clearer skin. These treatments are most often performed on the face but can also benefit the skin on your hands, neck, and chest. This procedure should not be performed on skin that has an open wound or if you have a chronic condition, like acne or rosacea.
Microdermabrasion Procedure Technique
Microdermabrasion treatments are performed in both of our Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute locations. During the treatment, you will relax in a comfortable chair as your skin is cleaned and prepared. Then, your aesthetician will pass the microdermabrasion handpiece over your skin to gently abrade the surface with fine crystals and simultaneously vacuum away the used crystals and dead skin. Though the treatment feels odd, it should not be painful. Most patients do not need a numbing cream or local anesthesia. The microdermabrasion will be performed evenly over your chosen areas, with more care and sensitivity around the eyes. Once the treatment is complete, your skin will be lightly cleansed to remove any residue, and then a moisturizer and sunscreen, selected for your skin type, will be applied.
What to Expect with Microdermabrasion
After a microdermabrasion treatment, you can immediately resume your normal activities, but you need to wear sunscreen or another form of sun protection because your skin will be sensitive. Your face should feel smoother, and your tone should be brighter and more even. To maintain your results, we recommend having these procedures every 4 – 6 weeks. Many patients of Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute notice that after their microdermabrasion treatments, their home skin care products (especially serums and creams) absorb more easily into their skin.
