What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure performed by a licensed medical professional. The term itself means light, physical exfoliation, when you break it down. Microdermabrasion is considered a light form of exfoliation because it only removes the most superficial layer of skin. The process of microdermabrasion is done with a handheld applicator that rubs tiny crystals into the treatment area. These crystals gently buff or sand away and exfoliate the superficial layer of skin around the treatment area, removing dead or dry skin cells in the process. Microdermabrasion can treat skin issues on practically any part of the body, including the face, neck, back, chest, stomach, thighs, buttocks, or shoulders.

How can microdermabrasion help my skin?

There are many ways that microdermabrasion can help your skin! Microdermabrasion has proven to treat several different skin issues effectively. By removing the outermost layer of skin in the treatment area, microdermabrasion stimulates an increase in collagen production, which contributes to healthy and fresh-looking skin. If you are dealing with any of the following skin issues, microdermabrasion is an excellent solution to your problem:

  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Age spots
  • Blackheads
  • Dullness in your skin complexion
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone or texture

Microdermabrasion is a great way to improve your skin’s health and help it look young and fresh! After a microdermabrasion treatment, your skin should feel soft and smooth.

What does microdermabrasion feel like?

Have you ever felt the sandpaper tongue of a cat licking you as if you were one of its kittens? Well, that is a reasonably accurate comparison to how microdermabrasion treatment feels. As such, you may experience somewhat of a tickling sensation, but the discomfort should be minimal and short-lived. It has also been described as a slight tugging or gritty massage but should never be painful.

What should I expect from microdermabrasion treatment?

Before we proceed with your microdermabrasion treatment, we will schedule you in for an initial consultation to make sure you can safely receive treatment and develop a treatment plan, either right before the procedure or on an earlier day. We will discuss your medical history during this consultation, whether you are currently taking any medication, and what your personal goals are for treatment. Your specialist will also examine the treatment area during this time to figure out how best to conduct microdermabrasion for you! This consultation should not take much more than 20 minutes.

As for the actual microdermabrasion procedure, the process will take between 15 and 30 minutes. After you are directed to the treatment room, we will get you to change into a gown and lie down on a comfortable surface where the specialist will provide microdermabrasion. Before they begin, your specialist will clean your face and prepare your skin for treatment. Then, they will move the handheld applicator over the treatment area until satisfactory results have been achieved. Finally, they will apply some moisturizer and sunscreen and give you some post-care instructions before sending you on your way! No downtime is required with microdermabrasion, so you should be able to resume your day without complication.
