Microdermabrasion 

Care Access Health Clinic offers microdermabrasion procedures that provide patients with skin that is both youthful in appearance and free of blemishes. Nurse Practitioner Adeniran is exceptionally trained in a variety of cosmetic procedures that help defy the effects of aging. If you have questions about the microdermabrasion procedure and live in the Babylon, New York area, the staff is available to answer your questions and provide you with detailed information about the process.

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that uses a sanding technique to target the outer or uppermost layers of the skin. Over time, the surface layer of the skin can become uneven and extremely thick, allowing scars and blemishes to become more noticeable.

During the procedure, Nurse Practitioner Adeniran will use a small sanding tool that gently treats the top layer of skin and exposes fresh, new skin underneath. Your skin may feel as if you have a severe sunburn for the first few days. It can take anywhere from seven to 14 days for the skin to finish healing. Your skin will be firmer and more toned and will have a natural color without the visible signs of aging.

What can you expect after a microdermabrasion procedure?

Immediately after the procedure, the skin may begin to feel tight and slightly uncomfortable. It may look slightly discolored for the first few days as the new skin starts to heal. Your skin will immediately begin to feel more toned, although moving the face may be slightly uncomfortable for the first few days.

Within two weeks, your skin will show visible signs of fresher, younger skin. Blemishes, small scars, and light wrinkles will have been erased, leaving behind skin that is pink and vibrant. Nurse Practitioner Adeniran will be able to advise you on how to care for your skin throughout the healing process correctly. That will enhance the results of the procedure and reduce the risk of infection.

How many treatments are needed?

In most cases, only one treatment is required to produce the desired results. You may be encouraged to have other procedures in the future to maintain the results for longer periods of time. If Nurse Practitioner Adeniran discovers that she can't remedy your blemishes, scars, or wrinkles during the first treatment, she may recommend additional procedures.

Microdermabrasion treatments offer fast and efficient results with a minimally invasive procedure. Although the recovery may be longer than what you would like, the results are significant and long-term: Your skin will have a fresher appearance with fewer blemishes for years to come.

 

Aerolase lightPod Neo Laser

The safest and gentlest aesthetic laser available.  Due to its unique Micropulse-1064 technology, which delivers energy to the skin 30-50 times faster than other lasers, patients of all skin types can receive safe, gentle and effective treatments without the use of messy cooling gels or anesthetics; solely using a beam of light to touch the skin.  The Neo’s pulse effectively targets tissue structures without causing any damage to the surrounding skin – resulting in the highest levels of treatment comfort, safety and efficacy.  The LightPod Neo is FDA approved for more than 30 medical and aesthetic applications.

We now offer the following treatments:

Hair Removal

Laser hair removal uses a combination of heat and energy to target the hair follicle without harming the skin around it.  The LightPod Neo laser offers patients a uniquely pain-free and gentle way to treat any unwanted hair.  Most patients who have been treated by other lasers say that being treated with the LightPod Neo is much gentler and more pleasant.  During laser hair removal, the hair must be in its growing phase in order to be successfully destroyed.  To ensure that all hair is effectively reduced during the growing phase, you will receive a series of treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart.  This will successfully ensure maximum results.

Pigmented Lesions

Over time, your skin is affected by exposure to UV light, which can cause pigmentary changes on the surface of the skin.  The result can be sun or age spots as well as freckles.  Some skin is affected by pigmentary changes at birth, called nevi or birthmarks.  Regardless of the pigmentary condition, the LightPod Neo can safely and effectively treat your pigmented lesion, resulting in an even and uniform skin tone. 

Skin Tightening/Rejuvenation

The LightPod Neo offers a uniquely noninvasive skin tightening/rejuvenation treatment to stimulate healthy collagen and restore your skin’s youthful appearance.  This process will help firm healthy skin, treat any vasculature and brown spots as well as help fill in wrinkles without any patient downtime.   Only a beam of laser light touches the skin for the most pleasant treatment available.  Typically, several treatments spaced out over a 6-month period are recommended to deliver remarkable results. 

Acne

Acne is a common condition across both youths and adults characterized by sebaceous glands being obstructed by the p. acnes bacteria.  This causes blemishes on the skin and can lead to scarring if not treated properly.  Until recently, patients could only be treated by topical or oral medications.  Now, the LightPod Neo laser can result in substantial improvement for the treatment of acne and acne scars.  The laser’s energy effectively destroys the p. acne bacteria, while restoring collagen to damaged skin.  The result is a significant clearance of active acne and visible acne scars.

Melasma

Melasma is a very common patchy brown, tan, or blue-gray facial skin discoloration, primarily seen on the upper cheeks, lip, forehead and chin of women 20-50 years of age.  Uncontrolled sunlight exposure is considered the leading cause of melasma, especially in individuals with a genetic predisposition to this condition. Melasma is most common among pregnant women.  The LightPod Neo targets melanin deep within the dermis to effectively lighten or clear any discolored patches in order to achieve a uniform skin tone.
