At Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery, our highly-trained Aesthetician, Sarah Hasty, performs microdermabrasion treatments to improve the appearance and health of the skin. This procedure safely and effectively removes damaged or dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin with a micro-crystal or diamond-tipped hand device. This process gently exfoliates the skin to encourage natural collagen production, which will help to soften fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. It also improves hyper-pigmentation and reduces enlarged pores. Patients from all over Orlando visit the MedSpa inside board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Armando Soto's office to receive microdermabrasion treatments. The results leave patients with beautifully soft, glowing skin.
"Bridget and Amanda made a super weird and uncomfortable procedure quite easy! I was really nervous, but their calming manner and conversation relaxed me. The Geneveve treatment was completely painless and there was no down time. My significant other thoroughly enjoys the results as well."- K.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 26, 2017
"Dr. Soto and his staff are professional and exude kindness and caring. They take their time with you and never make you feel rushed. Dr. Soto's knowledge and experience result in the most beautiful outcome. His incision lines are paper-thin, his belly buttons are the best and result in a natural-looking stomach. I am so very happy that I chose Aesthetic Enhancements to perform my mommy makeover!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Sep 12, 2019
"After having Dr. Soto perform my breast enhancement surgery 7 years ago, when I lost a significant amount of weight and my implants no longer suited my body or my lifestyle, I decided to return to him to have him perform the surgery to remove the implants. The surgery was a total success. The breast lift he performed made me more confident with my appearance and I look and feel as great as I did after the first surgery he performed for me. He is truly a gifted surgeon!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Aug 17, 2019

"Amy is the best! I am so happy with my results from the BBL Laser, Halo Laser, and Restalyne filler under my eyes. The care that Amy and Dr.Soto's team have provided me over these last few months have been nothing but exceptional. Thank you Amy for going above and beyond to exceed my expectations!"- L.M. / Yelp / Jul 11, 2019
Prior to the treatment, the aesthetician will cleanse the treated area with a mild cleaner to remove any dirt build-up, oils, and makeup. Once the area is properly cleansed, the aesthetician will then examine the patient's skin for any abrasions or sores that would cause discomfort during the microdermabrasion. The aesthetician will then apply the hand-held device to the target area to carefully exfoliate the skin while also removing skin debris via a gentle suction. Treatments range from 30 – 60 minutes depending on the area treated and the patients skin type.
The microdermabrasion treatment does not hurt as it targets the very top layer of the skin. However, some patients may feel light suction, scratching, or vibration during the treatment. Although there is no downtime following a microdermabrasion procedure, patients may experience mild redness, bruising, and flakiness. These symptoms usually subside after 1 – 2 days. The aesthetician will be able to educate patients on how to best care for their skin, including what skin care products to use for best results.
Plan Your Procedure
Microdermabrasion vs. Peels?
Chemical peels can be more invasive and may require 1 week of down time, whereas microdermabrasion does not require any down time. There are different strength levels of chemical peels, but our Aesthetician Sarah Hasty will be able to discuss the differences in detail during a patient’s consultation and help every patient decide if a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or both are best for their skin.
At Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery, we not only offer facial microdermabrasion treatments but microdermabrasion for the arms or back. These sessions usually last about 30-minutes and provide amazing skin results to the arms and back region.
After Care Tips?
Microdermabrasion treatments do not require any downtime. However, patients should refrain from exposing their skin to direct sunlight for the first 5 – 7 days following their procedure. This will better ensure the protection of their skin to enable optimal results.
