What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a treatment that removes the top layer of dead and sun-damaged skin, which reveals the fresh skin underneath. This treatment can rapidly refresh your skin while addressing some specific problems like:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Uneven texture
  • Acne
  • Acne scars

Microdermabrasion is sometimes combined with other treatments, for example, having microdermabrasion before a chemical peel allows your skin to soak in the peel ingredients better and provides more efficient peeling. This two-step approach can be especially effective for acne scars or other more serious skin concerns.

In addition to treating surface-level issues, microdermabrasion stimulates improved circulation underneath your skin and enhances your body’s collagen production. This leads to thicker, firmer, and smoother skin with a more even skin tone, making it a very popular anti-aging treatment.

What does microdermabrasion involve? 

In microdermabrasion treatments, the team moves a small handheld device over your skin, covering it in tiny microcrystals. The microcrystals dislodge debris and dirt while loosening the dead and sun-damaged top layer of your skin.

The team uses a suctioning device to pull the microcrystals off your skin, and this removes dead skin cells, dirt, and debris at the same time. Your skin might feel slightly warm or you could experience some mild tingling, but the microdermabrasion process isn’t painful.

What should I do after microdermabrasion? 

After microdermabrasion, your skin will look mildly pink, but this fades quickly. You can go back to your regular activities right away — in fact, you can schedule microdermabrasion on your lunch break if you like.

Stay away from the sun after your microdermabrasion sessions, as this can irritate your skin. Avoid using any harsh products on your skin after your microdermabrasion sessions.
