Remove Dead Cells for Clearer, Smoother Skin in Madison, WI
Our skin tone and texture worsen over time because of intrinsic aging combined with exposure to external stressors like UV radiation. This change may take the form of isolated spots and dry patches, or it may make our skin look overall blotchy, lackluster, and uneven. Radiance Skin Therapy & Laser Center can help you achieve a smoother and more youthful look with microdermabrasion in Madison, WI.
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive, no-downtime option ideal for improving overall skin texture and tone by removing the outer layer of dead skin cells to promote the growth of healthy new skin cells. Microdermabrasion can also open clogged pores, enhance the look of your makeup, and help topical products to provide their maximum benefit.

What Can Microdermabrasion Do?
Microdermabrasion involves the use of a special applicator that has an abrasive surface to gently polish the skin. Radiance Skin Therapy uses the DiamondTome machine, which has a natural diamond-textured tip to exfoliate, while at the same time vacuuming dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner. The purpose is to remove the dead, uneven layers of skin that are blocking the surface. The skin that is revealed is healthier and clearer. Microdermabrasion may also encourage increased collagen regeneration to improve the skin.
Microdermabrasion is beneficial for several common skin concerns, including sun damage, hyperpigmentation, sunspots, enlarged pores, blackheads, acne and acne scars, dull skin, uneven skin tone, uneven skin texture, stretch marks, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, and melasma. Microdermabrasion is safe for most skin types and tones.
What Happens Before and After Microdermabrasion Sessions?
Since microdermabrasion is non-surgical and minimally invasive, almost no preparation is required. During your consultation, it’s best that you talk to your provider about your unique skin concerns, along with previous aesthetic treatments you may have tried and any allergies or other medical conditions you have. Patients are usually instructed to avoid sun exposure, waxing, tanning creams, and exfoliating treatments for at least a week prior to their appointment.
The microdermabrasion treatment is gentle enough that you can go about your daily routine as soon as a session is over. Many people tend to experience softer, smoother, and cleaner skin after the first treatment, but we recommend regular microdermabrasion treatments performed every four to eight weeks to maintain overall skin health. Proper at-home skin care can also help to protect the beautiful results.
Other Skin Resurfacing Treatments Aside from Microdermabrasion
Chemical peels are one of the most common, traditional methods used for skin resurfacing. They involve the application of a mild chemical solution to remove dead skin from the surface so that new skin can be revealed. Patients may also consider HydraFacials® as another option for skin rejuvenation, since the both exfoliate and hydrate skin.
