About Microdermabrasion Treatment

Microdermabrasion is a form of manual exfoliation that works like a vacuum to remove layers of dead, damaged skin. Deep within each pore, your skin may become clogged with product buildup, dead skin cells, sebum, oil, and even environmental toxins.

However, using the highly effective form of manual exfoliation known as microdermabrasion, skin specialists are able to deeply cleanse your skin and support anti-aging efforts, plus reach other skin care goals.

A manual exfoliation therapy like microdermabrasion works by removing the delicate top layer of your skin. Your body senses the injury and works overtime to repair the damage. In reality, your skin is healthy and your skin specialist is simply tricking your body into creating new skin cells. This type of topical exfoliation stimulates the skin’s natural regeneration process, boosting collagen production, smoothing its texture, and improving the overall appearance of your skin.

How to Prepare for Microdermabrasion?

It is easy to prepare for a manual exfoliation treatment. All you need to do is make slight modifications to your everyday skincare routine. In doing this, you will need to reduce the duration of your exfoliation treatments at home, and also eliminate the use of harsh cleansers and abrasive tools. The day of your manual exfoliation appointment, simply wash your face and apply a fragrance-free moisturizer.

Manual Exfoliation FAQs

The differences between chemical and physical exfoliation are clear. For those looking for a hydroxy peel or enzyme, exfoliation through chemicals is ideal. A physical exfoliation is different in that it includes a microdermabrasion tool or other abrasive surfaces.
Manual exfoliation/microdermabrasion treatment is well-known to be considered as non-invasive. The treatment itself takes between 30 to 45 minutes, and takes almost no downtime without side effects. Some mild discomfort is reported and may include redness, skin irritation, and at worst, pain with downtime.
Almost every patient who undergoes the painless procedure of microdermabrasion reveals a new, youthful looking complexion. It is always recommended that you take a “before” and “after” photos of your treatment. That way you can share your success with others and boost your own self-confidence, too!
Typically, patients are able to continue to notice results up to 12 weeks after their initial microdermabrasion therapy session. However, you may even realize that immediately after the session, results improve for up to 6 weeks.
