What is Microdermabrasion?
When you run your hands over your face, does your skin feel rough, like sandpaper? If so, the outer skin layer may be clogged with dead skin cells that are making your complexion uneven and dull.

What to Expect with Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion treatments are ideal for men and women who want to minimize the look of blemishes on the skin's surface, such as uneven texture, dull skin tone, fine lines, clogged pores, sun damage, and scars. The microdermabrasion handpiece will pass along your skin as it polishes and vacuums the dead skin and crystals. Although the process may feel unusual, it is not painful so you shouldn't need a local anesthetic or numbing cream. The microdermabrasion will be applied evenly in the selected areas with more caution on the delicate skin around the eyes. You can resume your regular routine after the procedure, but you will need to apply some form of sun protection since your skin will be sensitive. The treated areas will feel smoother and the tone should be brighter and more even. To prolong your results, our office recommends scheduling these procedures every 4 – 6 weeks.
How often should I get microdermabrasion treatments?
Initially, you may need anywhere from 5 – 12 microdermabrasion treatments every 2 – 4 weeks to rejuvenate your complexion. After that, you should schedule treatments every 4 – 8 weeks to maintain your skin's health. During your initial consultation, your technician will develop a plan with recommendations for your skin's goals that plan out when you need to schedule appointments for microdermabrasion.
How should I care for my skin after a microdermabrasion treatment?
After your microdermabrasion, you should limit your activity for at least 24 hours to give your skin time to rest. You should avoid UV rays (natural sunlight or tanning beds) and protect your complexion with sunscreen. To minimize redness and swelling following the microdermabrasion, our team might suggest a moisturizer or cold compress.
Should I get microdermabrasion or a chemical peel?
Depending on your skin and cosmetic goals, one of our skin care professionals will help you decide if microdermabrasion or a chemical peel is the best treatment for you. In general, microdermabrasion is good for clearing away the surface layer of dead and damaged skin cells to make your complexion look smoother and healthier. You can get these same results from a light chemical peel. A stronger chemical peel is better if your issues are below the surface skin layers. The amount of time you want to spend in recovery might also influence which procedure you prefer because microdermabrasion requires little to no downtime.
