Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin treatment procedure that involves the skin being "sandblasted" by aluminum oxide crystals to remove the top layer of the skin, which mostly consists of dead skin cells. This also promotes the production of new cells in the basal (deepest) layer of the dermis. This procedure can effectively clean out the pores and hinder any breaks-outs and blemishes if used on a regular basis. Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen networking to further even out skin texture and appearance.

Am I a candidate for Microdermabrasion?

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. Microdermabrasion cannot be expected to removed deep scars or wrinkles, birth marks, serious sun damage, or tattoos. If you have no history of hypo/hyper-pigmentation or keloid scarring in your family, you should consider microdermabrasion as an alternative to a deeper invasive peel.

When is Microdermabrasion usually performed?

Microdermabrasion can be performed anytime, with sessions at 10 days apart from each other for best results. It is best for women to schedule this procedure in the first two weeks after their menstrual cycle because the skin is more sensitive nearing and during this time

What should I expect after Microdermabrasion?

You can expect to feel as if you have a mild sun burn or windburn. You skin will feel dry and may peel. This is a normal reaction and is consistent with the purpose of the procedure. You should regularly apply a high quality moisturizer as well as a high protection sunblock. Do not expose your face to sunlight or tanning beds for long periods of time. You should not use any exfoliating scrubs or lotions beforehand or afterwards for at least 3 days. Your skin will be smoother and the damage will be lessened the better you adhere to these recommendations.
