"My search was over after being referred to Dr. Brackup!!!. My son's wedding was coming up in August, 2016. My eyes were horrible .When I smiled you saw know eye's. I met one surgeon that was scared to remove the lower bags. How would that look? Didn't make sense. With Time running out by chance I when to a new hairdresser, that had her eyes done and look beautiful. Even though Dr. had a busy schedule,he made it a point to fit me in for June 28th. I was assured my eye's would look beautiful by August 20th. Dr. Brackup was right. I had Upper and lower procedures done. Dr. sculpted my eyes to compliment my high cheek bones. They are beautiful. At 60 years old I look twenty years younger!! Dr. Brackup and his entire staff were kind and honestly the best experience I ever had. He is gifted with hands of gold. He only works from the neck up and is a oculoplastic surgeon. My confident's is through the roof. I walk with my head high for the first time in a very long time.

Microdermabrasion treatments remove the top layers of damaged skin. Crystal-free technology with a diamond tipped vacuum wands gently buffs away dead skin cells and polishes the skin. It helps to unclog and shrink pores, reduces sun damage, and fine lines, leaving you with smoother, healthy new skin. Microdermabrasion is not painful, some people relate it to a light vacuum sensation on their skin.
During/After the Procedure
Microdermabrasion treatments last about 30 - 60 minutes and are performed in the office. Patients may have some temporary redness after their treatment, but this shouldn't last more than 1 day.
Plan Your Procedure
- Procedure Recovery Location
Any individual, men or women, with skin irregularities may consider the benefits of microdermabrasion. It’s an effective treatment for those who have fine wrinkles, dull or uneven skin tone, and rough skin texture.
Who Should Avoid It?
There are some precautions for those who have specific skin conditions, including severe acne or those who are on aggressive acne medications. People who also have multiple telangiectasises should also not consider this procedure. We will evaluate patients individually.
How About Freckles?
Freckles are an overproduction of melanin in the skin and common to those who have a fair complexion. It becomes visible due to extreme exposure to sun. Although microdermabrasion can remove the top layers of skin where freckles are contained, there are other alternatives specifically for freckle removal such as a deeper chemical peel or photofacial treatment to minimize the freckles from reoccurring.
Is A Chemical Peel Better?
Microdermabrasion and chemical peels both refinish the skin to promote new skin growth. Both can be mildly or aggressively invasive depending on how many layers are involved. The only difference between the two treatments is the method used in achieving the intended results. Microdermabrasion gently polishes the skin while a chemical peel uses solutions, usually acid based, to attain a similar result.
