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.

"In December 2020, Allure Plastic Surgery Center in Red Bank, NJ launched their 12 days of Beauty giveaway on Instagram. I must have been feeling lucky that day since I was selected to win a few free services including the O-Shot. At the time of entering the contest, I was unsure what the O-Shot was. After research, my interest was piqued when I learned there is a non-surgical way to increase sexual arousal and rejuvenate the vagina. Past Experience I have always struggled in my adult life being able to reach orgasm. In my last relationship of 2 years this was a serious topic of conversation as my boyfriend lost confidence in himself along with a bruised ego when he was not able to get me to climax. Reaching orgasm can feel elusive or even impossible for many women. Some can’t climax at all. This is normal but it’s worth determining whether there’s something getting in the way of having an orgasm. I have always been comfortable with my own body and was able to be more relaxed when I was alone with the help of vibrator devices. O-Shot Experience On the day of the appointment, I met with Dr. Thomas Theocharides and his assistant Nadine Russell for a 30-minute consultation. During the consultation Dr. Theocharides wanted to ensure I was a good candidate for the procedure, so we discussed the pros and cons of my sexual history and what I was hoping to achieve after the procedure. Dr. Theocharides made me feel very comfortable while discussing the most intimate things. He then began to explain the procedure which involves taking a vial of my blood, spun in a centrifuge to extract the plasma followed by numbing cream on my clitoris. After 20 mins of numbing, a large needle filled with my platelet-rich plasma (PRP) was then injected into the vagina and clitoral area to stimulate new cell growth. Nadine was in the room while this took place, and she was very supportive by handing me a stress ball and held my hand if I felt any discomfort. The entire procedure was quick and painless as there was just slight pressure. Once complete, I left the office ready to experiment. Testing out the O-Shot My first rule of business was to test out the O-Shot using a vibrator as in the past I was able to attain a slight orgasm this way. Within a couple days after the treatment, the O-Shot was able to enhance the sensation in my clitoris while allowing me to achieve an orgasm faster and more intensely. Nadine advised me that it may take up to 8 weeks for the growth factors to fully engage. My thoughts were, WOW this can get better!! It’s now been 6 months since the O-Shot and it’s still going strong, except this time I am able to test it out on a new relationship and let me just say its 100% worth it. On average, the O-Shot lasts about a year and I would highly recommend this treatment to any women who enjoy intimacy, want to increase lubrication, sexual desire and improve stimulation. Thank you, Dr. Thomas Theocharides & Nadine Russell, for such a pleasurable experience."- K.A / Office Visit / Sep 28, 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.
