What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical skin treatment solution available for patients who want to rejuvenate and resurface their face and other areas.

Similar to dermaplaning, microdermabrasion uses manual exfoliation to remove dry, damaged, and dead skin from the face. The procedure can help reveal smoother skin with fewer blemishes and reduced signs of aging!

At the Morgenstern Center, Philadelphia facial surgeon Dr. Morgenstern offers non-surgical skincare services to residents and visitors of Philadelphia, the Main Line, King of Prussia, Wayne, PA, New Jersey, and the neighboring tri-state areas.

There are many ways you can use exfoliation to buff away imperfections and rough texture from the skin. The most popular options include using products, like cleansers or chemical peels, and manual exfoliation.

As with many skincare options, there are different strengths and products you can use, ranging from at-home exfoliating masks, cleansers, and even products like scrubbers or gloves.

For those who need or desire a medical-grade treatment directed by a facial surgeon, the Morgenstern Center offers patients in Philadelphia Microdermabrasion.

Skin resurfacing is an excellent option for patients who want to brighten dull, lackluster skin, improve or reduce side effects of aging, and target specific imperfections in the skin. It’s a versatile treatment, which means you can get multiple uses out of it and target various issues, such as:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone, age spots, sun spots, and brown spots
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Enlarged pores
  • Loss of elasticity, jowling, or sagging skin
  • Dark undereye circles and crepiness
  • For use on the face, neck, decollate, arms, and hands
  • How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

    The microdermabrasion technique typically combines the use of crystals, or more commonly, a diamond-studded wand to gently but effectively exfoliate upper layers of dermis and buff away any imperfections in the skin. Dr. Morgenstern oversees all procedures at the Morgenstern Center.

    You may be advised to avoid certain products, like self-tanner or at-home exfoliation prior to your appointment. Sunscreen and moisturizer are applied after the treatment to help maximize the results.

    Skin resurfacing techniques can be versatile and gentle, making it a great treatment option for almost all skin types, tones, and pigmentations.

    Ideal candidates include patients looking for a pick-me-up for their skin and want to help get rid of embarrassing or unwanted blemishes and imperfections. For patients with frequent acne, visible scars, clogged pores, or redness, it can help to reduce the visibility of these temporarily. Many of our Philadelphia microdermabrasion patients opt for skin resurfacing as a way to brighten skin before an important date, photo op, or as a luxurious treat!

    DermaSweep is a groundbreaking, customizable technology that combines 30 years of traditional medical grade dermatological and aesthetic treatments in one convenient anti aging therapy.

DermaSweep is a comfortable, in-house procedure that typically takes under an hour to perform. Dr. Morgenstern may advise that you avoid certain products, like self-tanner or at-home exfoliation prior to your appointment.

    DermaSweep: The New Generation In Skin Resurfacing

    Combining the exfoliating benefits of microdermabrasion, with the improvement of circulation from a facial massage, and the infusion of vital nutrients, this revolutionary new approach to anti-aging delivers visible results in as little as one treatment.

    From improving fine lines and wrinkles and reducing pigment, The Morgenstern Center is proud to offer DermaSweep the latest technology in skin resurfacing as a senior technique to microdermabrasion.

    Who is a Good Candidate for DermaSweep?


    DermaSweep is safe and effective, making it a great treatment option for almost all skin types, tones, and pigmentations. Ideal candidates include patients with signs of aging, dull and lackluster skin, those with embarrassing skin discoloration, unwanted blemishes and imperfections. For patients with frequent acne, visible scars, or redness, DermaSweep can help to treat and correct these conditions.

    What is the Difference Between Dermaplaning and Microdermabrasion?

    Microdermabrasion is a form of manual exfoliation which sweeps away dead skin cells from the epidermis. The skin is left smoother as the vacuum action of the wand stimulates blood flow, cleans the pores and removes debris.

    Dermaplaning is the controlled scraping of the skin using a sterile, surgical blade for the removal of keratinized cells and fine vellus hair on the outer layer of the skin. One can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone, while the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, minimized appearance of fine lines, and the removal of facial hair which creates the perfect canvas for makeup application.

    Can DermaSweep Be Combined with Other Treatments?

    DermaSweep is a powerful trio of medical grade treatments that many patients love due to its versatility and vibrant results. It is the combination of exfoliation to remove dead skin, circulation to boost collage, and infusion of nutrients or a chemical peel for visible results with one treatment.

    As such, this singular treatment stands alone. Near future laser treatments, such as IPL, can be combined soon after. To see if you’ll benefit from a combination of treatments for maximum results, schedule a consultation with Dr. Morgenstern at either of his offices in Philadelphia.

    Non-surgical face enhancement treatments are becoming increasingly popular, especially among patients who prioritize luxury skincare solutions. Some of the most popular choices for men and women include microdermabrasion and dermaplaning.

    DermaSweep combines these two treatments, along with an infusion of peptides and a light to moderate chemical peel, for luminous skin. This can be done at our facilities located in Wayne and Lancaster within Philadelphia.

    When you visit a facial plastic surgeon and a high-end cosmetic surgery center like the Morgenstern Center for Orbital & Facial Plastic Surgery, you will receive top-tier care and only the best medical-grade products and treatments.

    At-home options exist, but do not provide the same results as a medical grade treatment. For these, it is always best to visit a licensed skincare specialist, aesthetician, or plastic surgeon.
