Microdermabrasion Q & A

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic method used to remove the top layer of skin. The process improves skin tone and texture. It's suitable for both men and women.

The microdermabrasion wand used by your Aesthetic and Clinical Dermatology Associates provider is mildly abrasive, which means it sands away the outermost skin. Although this sounds painful, microdermabrasion is, in fact, a gentle way of exfoliating your skin and doesn’t require any anesthetic injections or creams.

The experienced team members at Aesthetic and Clinical Dermatology Associates know precisely how much pressure to apply to get the best results from your microdermabrasion treatment.

What can microdermabrasion treat?

Microdermabrasion effectively treats many common skin blemishes, including:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Melasma (brown patches of skin on the face)
  • Enlarged pores

Your provider can use different settings to treat these different blemishes without damaging healthy skin.

What happens when I have microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is an in-office procedure that typically takes around half an hour to complete. You sit in a comfortable reclining chair while your provider passes the microdermabrasion device over your skin.

After the treatment, your provider puts moisturizer and sunscreen on your skin to provide nourishment and protection. Your skin can be a little tender, and you might see mild swelling and redness.

Microdermabrasion doesn’t require any downtime, so you can carry on with your day as you would normally. All you need to do is keep your skin moisturized and protect it from the sun.

How soon after microdermabrasion will I see the results?

You ought to see some improvement straight after your microdermabrasion session. Your skin should look even better after a few weeks as healthy new tissue grows and your skin tone improves.

Most people benefit from several microdermabrasion treatments. Your provider at Aesthetic and Clinical Dermatology Associates can advise you how many you need to achieve the best results. It's likely to be 3-6 sessions. You need to wait 30 days between microdermabrasion sessions.

You can also combine microdermabrasion with IPL photofacials for an even more flawless complexion. To find out more or schedule a consultation, call Aesthetic and Clinical Dermatology Associates today or request an appointment online.
