If you run your hands over your face, does your skin feel soft and smooth or like sand paper? The surface layer of skin may be clogged with damaged skin cells that can make your complexion dull and uneven. At Elevate Medical Spa in Dallas, TX, our team of skin care professionals, directed by board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Thornwell Parker and Kevin Hanz, offer cosmetic services like noninvasive skin resurfacing with microdermabrasion. Effective and fast, microdermabrasion treatments remove the upper layer of dead and damaged skin so your complexion is brighter and healthier. Microdermabrasion can be used alone or with another skin treatment, like a dermal filler or chemical peel, for more dramatic improvements. At your consultation, an Elevate team member will develop a custom treatment plan based on your concerns and goals.

"This review is well overdue, but now you can be certain I am certain of my results! My skin wasn't horrid, but as it turns out, it needed work. I would get the usual lady cycle breakouts (even at 31) and the occasional pimple here and there. It would take 2-3 weeks to clear up. Who has time for that?! And then I was introduced to Felicia. Felicia put me on a ZO regimen in July. It took about a month for my skin texture to change. I did not even know that was a thing! My skin texture was smoother, brighter, and tighter! The compliments were rolling in!Fast forward to 6-7 months in, and if I may be self indulgent, am in love with my face. I always secretly wanted to be able to walk out of the house with no makeup (always sunscreen!) and look fantastic. With Felicia's guidance, I have been able to achieve that goal. My makeup consists of a tube of mascara, as I am confident enough not to hide behind foundation, CC cream, etc. It wasn't an overnight change, there are days where my face is itchy, there have been series of days of constant peeling and redness. However, I stuck with it, Felicia was a constant support, and I am so thankful I did."- R.B. / Yelp / Mar 13, 2018
"One of the most talented plastic surgeons. Dr Hanz is truly a miracle worker. Cosmetic surgery skills are amazing. He recently performed a very difficult hand surgery for my father in law. Amazing results. Highly recommend."- S.L. / Facebook / Feb 22, 2018
"Always a great result - I've received Botox treatments from Dr. Hanz and it always looks natural and I receive many compliments. Very happy with my care... Im contemplating other treatments and I wouldn't go anywhere else. His bedside manner is very pleasant as well.."- C. / RealSelf / Feb 01, 2018
"Breast Implant Removal and Liposuction - The staff at Elevate was amazing from scheduling my consultation down to the actual procedure. I had two separate procedures performed by Dr. Hanz the first one being a breast implant removal and the second one was liposuction. Dr. Hanz and his staff were very helpful in answering all of my questions and concerns. My continued care after the procedures has been substantial as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Hanz and his staff for any of your cosmetic needs."- H. / RealSelf / Jan 30, 2018
Microdermabrasion can reduce the visibility of surface skin blemishes such as uneven skin texture, dull skin tone, fine lines, clogged pores, sun damage, and scars. Microdermabrasion is appropriate for men and women of all skin tones and types that want healthier, clearer skin. Microdermabrasion is typically performed on the face; however, it can also be performed on your hands, neck, and chest. Microdermabrasion should not be performed on skin that has an open wound or if you have a chronic condition, like acne or rosacea.
Microdermabrasion treatments are done in our office after a thorough consultation to determine what services will lead to your best results. For the treatment, you will sit back in a special chair as your skin is prepared and cleaned. The special handpiece will be passed along your skin as it both polishes and removes the dead skin and crystals. While the treatment feels rough on the skin, it is not usually painful, so you should not need a numbing cream or local anesthesia. The microdermabrasion will be applied evenly over the selected areas, with more care in delicate areas like around the eyes. After the treatment is done, the skin will be lightly cleansed to get rid of any leftover debris before a protective moisturizer, selected for your skin type with sunscreen, is applied.
What to Expect
After a treatment, you can continue all your normal day as long as you wear sunscreen or another form of sun protection regularly since your skin will be sensitive. Your skin should feel smoother and your skin tone will be more even. To keep the results of your treatment, Drs. Parker and Hanz recommend having microdermabrasion every 4 – 6 weeks. Most Elevate Medical Spa patients notice that after microdermabrasion, their skin care products (especially creams and lotions) absorb more easily into their skin for better results.
