What is the Goal of a Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a popular medical spa technique that buffs away imperfections and dead skin cells from the first few layers of skin, leaving behind the healthy, smoother, blemish-free skin. This procedure can be effective in treating a number of conditions, including hyperpigmnetation, minor surface scarring, enlarged pores, sun damage, and acne. It can also help patients reverse unwanted signs of aging, such as fine lines, stretch marks, and wrinkles. The goal of microdermabrasion is to help patients revitalize their skin and achieve an enhanced appearance, free from unsightly imperfections.
Is Microdermabrasion Right For Me?
A microdermabrasion procedure is a minimally invasive procedure that requires no surgery and can be achieved through a series of simple procedures. This means that many patients who wish to avoid or simply cannot undergo surgery can enjoy enhanced skin without extensive procedures. Men and women of all ages may benefit from microdermabrasion. A personalized consultation with our specialist can help to determine if you are an eligible candidate.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Microdermabrasion?
The most common area treated with microdermabrasion is the face, although the procedure may be effective in other areas of the body as well. Patients may see an improvement with a microdermabrasion on their back, chest, hands, and more. During your consultation with our aesthetician, you can discuss your MedSpa options and where you may benefit from a microdermabrasion procedure.
How Involved is the Microdermabrasion Procedure?
Patients who wish to see effective, dramatic results will typically start out with two microdermabrasion procedures a month until they see the results they desire. There are two popular microdermabrasion techniques, both of which incorporate the use of a hand-held device that uses exfoliating materials to break down the dead skin cells and suction it away, revealing a healthy, fresh new layer. It can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and has been compared to the feeling of receiving a brisk massage.

What to Expect Following Microdermabrasion
Patients will be able to resume their daily activities immediately following the microdermabrasion procedure. If you work in direct sunlight, you may need to take extra precautions in addition to wearing a quality SPF 30 sunscreen to protect your skin.
It is common to experience mild discomfort in the few days following your procedure. You may experience sensitive skin that appears dry or flaky, but this will subside as the healing process progresses. You can apply arnica directly to your skin to alleviate inflammation.
Each patient’s experience with microdermabrasion will vary. You will begin to see results after a few treatments. Once you have achieved your desired goals, you should continue to receive a treatment once a month to maintain your results.
