In general Microdermabrasion is not a treatment that causes any pain. The sensation it gives can be described as a very light suction from the vacuum being rolled over the skin.
One of the great things about microdermabrasion is that there’s no down time!
We would not recommend this treatment for those who have active acne, as this can spread the condition across the face, however other than this there are no constraints on who can have microdermabrasion.
Crystals are applied to the skin and immediately vacuumed away to gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin. A small handheld vacuum tool is used to allow the crystals to work into the skin and stimulate collagen production, giving the skin a plumped, refreshed look.
Is microdermabrasion good for your face?
Microdermabrasion works on all skin types and colors. It makes subtle changes, causing no skin color change or scarring. It is not effective for deeper problems such as scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, or deep acne scars. With microdermabrasion, there is less down time than with dermabrasion.
How long do the effects of microdermabrasion last?
The effects of the treatment typically last for about 1 month. The length of time results will last varies depending on your age and how well you are responding to the treatment, but for most patients, it is common to schedule regular appointments every 4 weeks.
Do you see results after one microdermabrasion?
Because it deeply exfoliates, microdermabrasion will improve the tone and texture of your skin. Even after just one treatment, you'll notice your skin feels smoother and your complexion looks brighter and healthier.
