Microdermabrasion FAQ’s

What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-chemical, non-invasive method of skin resurfacing that utilizes fine crystals to provide effective exfoliation and rejuvenation of the superficial layers of the skin.  When a more aggressive treatment is necessary, vacuum pressure can be increased to evenly penetrate deeper layers of the skin.  Increasing the blood supply provides nutrients necessary for skin regeneration, repair, and increased cellular turnover.  In return, your skins’ elasticity and texture improves, as well as balancing the pigment.

How do I know if  Microdermabrasion is right for me?
If you have or have had acne, discolorations, superficial lines and wrinkles, uneven texture or sun damaged skin — you may be a candidate for Microdermabrasion.

Is Microdermabrasion safe?
Microdermabrasion is a safe and common procedure.  Unlike laser resurfacing or chemical peels, this procedure is not traumatic and therefore there is no downtime to allow for healing and recovery.

Will there be any downtime?
One of the advantages of Microdermabrasion is that it has no downtime.  You can return to your normal routine and apply cosmetics directly after your treatment. This is why Microdermabrasion is sometimes called “the lunchtime face-lift”.

How long does a Microdermabrasion procedure take to perform?
A Microdermabrasion facial procedure takes approximately half an hour, from start to finish.  Sometimes, additional time is required for added areas.

How long do the treatment results last?
The lasting effects of Microdermabrasion are dependant on proper skin care.  Additional treatments will renew your youthful appearance.  A series of six treatments over a few months is generally recommended for a client to have the best results, followed by regular maintenance treatments.
