What Should You Expect During a Microdermabrasion Treatment?

Microdermabrasion treatment helps to exfoliate the surface layers of skin on your face. This simple, painless, and quick cosmetic treatment reduces risks and downtime for patients. This treatment uses diamond-studded or crystal tips to graze the skin and suction dead skin cells on the affected areas.

Microdermabrasion enhances rapid recovery and minimizes the risks that are usually associated with skincare. As a simple outpatient procedure, our experts do not use needles or anesthesia for this painless procedure. However, people considering microdermabrasion treatment need to know what to expect before going through the process.

Types of Microdermabrasion

Both estheticians and dermatologists perform this treatment on eligible candidates. Microdermabrasion procedures come in two types, which thoroughly exfoliate the skin. These two procedures include a crystal and diamond microdermabrasion.

Crystal-microdermabrasion involves shooting fine micro-crystals onto your skin and vacuuming them simultaneously. This treatment works like a high-powered facial scrub, which leaves your skin feeling soft and looking radiant. Another version of microdermabrasion uses a diamond tip instead of crystals.

We recommend a series of treatments for an improved skin tone and texture. This treatment helps to reduce sun damage, acne, fine wrinkles, stretch marks, and enlarged pores.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Since microdermabrasion treatment does not require all the elements of an intrusive procedure, treatment lasts between fifteen to thirty minutes. The process begins with face cleansing to prep your skin for treatment.  After completing the procedure, patients undergo another facial cleansing to get rid of any stray crystals. Lastly, moisturizer and sunscreen application conclude the procedure.

Most patients do not know if they require to follow treatment. Depending on your desired end goal, our professional team recommends you schedule a follow-up treatment. This helps assess areas that require more work and the number of treatments needed. Most patients only require one treatment, but severe cases require up to six treatments.
