How Microdermabrasion Works
Microdermabrasion treatments are done in our office following a consultation to determine what procedures will give you the best results. During the treatment, you will be asked to sit back in a comfortable chair as your face is cleaned and prepared. The microdermabrasion handpiece will pass over your skin as the tool both polishes and vacuums the crystals and dead skin. While the process may feel a little rough, it is not painful, so you shouldn't need a local anesthetic or numbing cream.
The microdermabrasion will be performed evenly over the selected areas, with more care in delicate areas like around the eyes. As soon as the treatment is over, your skin will be cleaned to get rid of any residue before a moisturizer, selected for your skin type with sun protection, is massaged into the skin.
How much does microdermabrasion cost?
The price of microdermabrasion can be talked about in your consultation with a skin care technician. Once you discuss your goals and they assess your skin, your custom treatment plan can be made. About Face & Body Medical Spa has specials on treatments including microdermabrasion and discounted packages if you buy several sessions.
Should I get microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel?
Based on your skin and goals, a skin care technician will help you determine if microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel is the best procedure for you. In general, microdermabrasion clears away the surface layer of damaged and dead skin cells so your complexion is smooth and healthier. A light chemical peel produces similar results to microdermabrasion. A stronger chemical peel or dermabrasion can help if your concerns are deeper. The amount of time you want to spend in recovery might also help you decide which procedure you want because microdermabrasion causes minimal downtime.
How often should I get microdermabrasion treatments?
To start, you should get anywhere from 5 – 12 microdermabrasion treatments every 2 – 4 weeks to rejuvenate your complexion. After that, you may move to treatments every 1 – 2 months to maintain your skin's health. In your initial consultation, your technician will develop a treatment plan with suggestions for your needs that plan out when you should schedule appointments for microdermabrasion.
