How Microdermabrasion Works

Skin is cleansed. Then the clinician removes the top layer of skin with a microdermabrasion machine, a motorized handheld device with an abrasive tip.

There is no pain, but you may feel a sanding sensation as the instrument is moved over skin. A pampering moisturizer is applied, and you are on your way.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your treated skin may be pink or red and slightly puffy after microdermabrasion. This usually goes away after a day.

The skin may bruise, burn, sting, or become particularly sensitive to sunlight in rare circumstances. These will go away on their own.

If your skin is prone to developing dark spots after acne has cleared or a skin injury has healed, you may be at a higher risk of acquiring new dark spots. This danger is minimal when microdermabrasion is performed by a dermatologist.

You will not have any downtime or recovery time. Some patients’ skin becomes pink or crimson. The skin may bulge a little. These adverse effects are comparable to getting a sunburn or windburn for a day or two. During this time, some patients may feel uneasy returning to work or going out in public.

That depends a great deal on the skill and experience of the provider. Our aesthetics team performs microdermabrasion on a frequent basis. They have good success treating all skin types and ethnicities. Microdermabrasion can also enhance the benefits of other nonsurgical skin rejuvenation techniques such as injectable neurotoxins and fillers.
Yes. Skin is meant to exfoliate at a rapid rate. However, modern diet and lifestyle can inhibit the process. Microdermabrasion boosts blood flow, bringing an increased supply of nutrients and oxygen to superficial skin layers. This safe treatment can be scheduled as often as weekly to keep skin fresh and revitalized.
That is a common question, which the clinician will answer during your consultation or before treatment. In most cases, makeup can be worn the next day.
