How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

Microdermabrasion uses physical exfoliation to gently sand the skin, removing the dull and uneven outer layer. It can be done using a special device that sprays fine abrasive particles and clears them away with suction. A different device uses a special diamond-tipped wand to exfoliate instead. Both techniques offer skin benefits.

The treatment itself takes less than an hour. Because it only targets the surface layers of the skin, microdermabrasion isn’t uncomfortable. Topical anesthetics and numbing agents aren’t necessary.

What Microdermabrasion Can Treat

A single microdermabrasion session leaves skin softer, smoother, and more radiant while improving concerns such as:

  • Uneven skin texture
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dullness

Microdermabrasion may be combined with laser treatments for a more dramatic result.

How Many Sessions Are Needed?

The number of professional microdermabrasion treatments you will need depends on your goals and the condition of your skin. If you’re just interested in giving your skin a pick me up, one session can leave your complexion brighter and more even.

However, if you’re trying to address specific skin problems or experience a significant change, you’ll most likely need a serious of treatments. Results are cumulative, with each session building off the progress made in the last. Our staff will work with you to create an appropriate treatment plan.

What to Expect After Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion requires no downtime or recovery period. You should be able to resume your daily routine right after treatment. You may experience slight redness or tenderness, which commonly fades within a few hours.

Caring for your skin is simple moving forward. Our staff will give you recommendations to protect and optimize your results. Since microdermabrasion temporarily increases skin’s sensitivity to the sun, it’s crucial to wear sunscreen in the weeks following treatment.  

You can expect to see noticeable results right away. Microdermabrasion results are relatively long-lasting. Most people choose to receive regular treatments as part of a maintenance plan.
