Microdermabrasion in Portland
Relieve Tension and Improve Circulation
Resurfacing is a technique for removing the topmost layer of skin, creating a supple and vibrant look. For people who do not want the downtime associated with peels and laser procedures, microdermabrasion at Portland’s Waldorf Center is a wonderful alternative, as it is non-invasive and requires no social down time after treatment. Normal activities may be resumed immediately. Your skin will have a radiant glow, free of irritation. Patients experience softer, smoother skin after the first treatment. A microdermabrasion treatment series ranges from four to 10 sessions, depending on your skin type and condition.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
The medispa at the Waldorf Center is staffed by specially trained aestheticians who have worked with Dr. Kathleen Waldorf for years. They use DiamondTome™ for microdermabrasion, which removes the unwanted outermost layer of skin by gently exfoliating it with natural diamond chips while vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile manner. Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells leaves a smoother texture, and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells.
This is because the outermost layer of skin, known as the epidermis, is where the signs of daily wear and tear appear. These marks become increasingly pronounced as natural components of healthy skin, such as collagen and hyaluronic acid, diminish over time. Eventually, once-vibrant skin takes on a dull look in addition to bearing wrinkles and uneven pigmentation.
Since the outermost layer of skin takes so much of the damage delivered by life, it serves as a protective barrier for the skin beneath. That is why when this skin is revealed, it has fewer lines, spots, and blemishes. The new outer layer will age over time, so getting microdermabrasion is like resetting the clock on youthful skin. Talk to the Waldorf Center spa team to learn about ongoing maintenance to preserve a look of vitality, as well options for future treatments.
What Other Treatments Are Available?
Microdermabrasion is not the only option for revitalizing a look by removing dead skin cells. A more intense chemical peel can accomplish a similar effect, using a specially formulated solution to prompt the outermost layer to peel away. Fractional laser resurfacing also reveals a younger layer, using heat energy to trigger the peeling process.
Patients who want something other than resurfacing can choose from the injectable BOTOX® and dermal fillers, fat-reducing CoolSculpting®, and skin-tightening Ultherapy®. When used in combination, these treatments can provide overall rejuvenation.
A Waldorf Center aesthetician will recommend the best treatment for you based on your skin type and condition, as well as the results you want to achieve.
