WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?
As we age, our complexion begins to dull and our skin tone starts to become uneven. Wishing for a more even skin tone and a more youthful appearance is easier than you think. Microdermabrasion is a medical spa treatment that removes dead skin cells to reveal fresh, invigorated skin. This non invasive treatment can erase the signs of aging. Dr. Theocharides provides microdermabrasion for patients in his Red Bank, New Jersey office. The procedure is great for patients who are brand new to anti-aging skin care as well as patients who want to maintain the results of their other cosmetic enhancement procedures. Dr. Theocharides may couple microdermabrasion with a professional skin care regimen for optimal results. Microdermabrasion allows skincare products to penetrate the skin more efficiently.
There are many microdermabrasion products on the market for you to use at home. However, the microdermabrasion that Dr. Theocharides performs uses a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand down that thick outer layer of your skin. This goes deeper into the skin when compared to store bought treatments giving you greater results. Microdermabrasion appeals to many patients because it’s fast, there is no downtime, and it’s safe for every skin tone. Microdermabrasion is also an affordable cosmetic skin care procedure. A full treatment typically costs about $150. Ask about package deals for multiple treatment sessions.

"I was researching botox for men online when I came across something called “scrotox”. It is apparently becoming an increasing cosmetic thing for men. I suffer from urological conditions and have been experiencing testicular/scrotal discomfort and pain for years and have been miserable. I was curious if doing this cosmetic procedure could also help me with relief of my testicular/scrotal pain. I called a few places and then found Dr. Theocharides and Nadine. I was nervous asking about this at first but then they were so easy to talk to and I felt completely comfortable. Dr. T agreed to do the scrotox on me for cosmetic reasons only. I went and had the scrotox done. It really didn’t take that long and I did not feel any pain at all with the injections. Dr. T was cool to talk with the entire time also and I was not nervous at all. He is actually a really cool and nice person and it was an enjoyable experience. About two weeks after the scrotox procedure I started noticing results and maybe by week 3 I noticed my scrotum was completely relaxed and the best part was that I did not feel my scrotal/testicular pain anymore either. It has been about 2 months now and I’m still pain free. As for appearance my scrotum used to be tight all the time and my testicles were up near my body. They almost never hung freely. Now my scrotum is completely relaxed and testicles hang much lower. So now I am pain free and also enjoying the cosmetic appearance of having low hanging testicles. It has also improved my sex life as well. I am completely satisfied. If you are curious about getting scrotox I highly recommend Dr. T and Nadine. They are a great team. I will definitely be going there for all of my facial botox and scrotox treatments from now on. You will be in good hands if you do too."- CN / Office Visit / Mar 12, 2021

ABOUT THE MIRCRODERMABRASION PROCEDURE
During microdermabrasion, Dr. Theocharides will exfoliate your skin using a fine spray of microscopic crystals and gentle suction. Only the outer layer of the skin is removed, shedding away dead skin cells, to reveal brighter, fresher, younger looking skin. A typical microdermabrasion treatment session lasts between 30 minutes to an hour. While having tiny crystals blasted at your face may sound painful, there really is little if any pain associated with the microdermabrasion procedure. Dr. Theocharides can control the strength of the spray as well as the suction to ensure you remain comfortable throughout your session.
After treatment, you can expect your skin to be a little pink. This should subside in a few hours. Some people report a sensation that is similar to a sunburn for a day or so. While you will be able to apply makeup after this treatment, it may be a good idea to hold off using medicated face wash, toners or acne treatments for at least 24 hours. These products may sting or burn slightly if used right after microdermabrasion. But never skip the suncreen. Protecting your skin from sun damage will give you the best possible results.
You’ll feel a noticeable change in the look and feel of your skin after having microdermabrasion. Results typically improve gradually after your first treatment and any following treatments. Most patients benefit from a series of microdermabrasion sessions spaced about a month apart. The number of treatments needed depends on the condition of your skin and the results you desire. Most patients will benefit from a series of treatment sessions (about 3 – 5) spaced over several months.
