Microdermabrasion involves lightly scraping off the surface layer of skin using a small handheld tool by a skincare expert. The treatment will exfoliate the skin, decrease signs of aging, and make the skin appear evenly toned. It’s an entirely harmless procedure, does not require anesthesia, and has demonstrated promising effects in clinical trials. Overall, microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure for restoring the color and texture of the skin.

A treatment facilitates the regeneration of new cells quicker than the body can generally replace them, and the effect is more compact, toned, and smooth skin.

How Does the Procedure Work?

Microdermabrasion usually takes about an hour. It is done by students under the tutelage of a certified and licensed instructor and does not require anesthesia

You will be relaxing on a treatment table during your procedure, and your technician will use a handheld instrument with diamond-cut tips, to gently remove the outer skin layer in the targeted areas. A moisturizer and sunscreen will be applied to your skin at the end of the treatment.

This non-invasive technique improves blood circulation, which enhances the elasticity and texture of the skin and will increase cell production. Microdermabrasion helps your collagen thicken, resulting in a younger appearance. The development of collagen decreases as we age, leading to looser, uneven skin.

The good news is side effects are minimal. Mild skin pinkness is the ideal outcome and typically improves in a few to hours. Your skin may also be mildly exfoliated, so consistently apply moisturizer or ointment. For a few days, you may feel a mild sunburn-like heat. Be sure to stay out of direct sunlight for two days after your treatment

Most patients feel little pain, and when the procedure is over, your technician will apply a soothing serum and hydrating face mask that will make you feel pampered. The numbing cream will wear off after a couple of hours, and your skin will feel new again.
