Microdermabrasion Q & A

How does microdermabrasion work?

Microdermabrasion is a form of manual or physical exfoliation that removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells and impurities. The process is gentle and noninvasive, but it should always be performed by a trained medical esthetics professional who understands how to protect and preserve your skin. 

Your skin is constantly going through phases of renewal, with cells shedding and developing at different rates. However, many factors can slow these cycles, leaving your skin looking dull and dry as dead skin cells accumulate. 

Microdermabrasion accelerates the natural process of cell renewal. By removing all of the dead skin and debris at once, a layer of fresh and healthy cells is revealed.  

What are some of the benefits of microdermabrasion?

In addition to delivering a fresh and healthy glow, microdermabrasion is a wonderful treatment option for a variety of common skin issues. Some concerns that bring people in for microdermabrasion treatments include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Dull skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dark spots

Microdermabrasion is a great alternative for people who are not good candidates for light therapy or more invasive treatments like microneedling. There is minimal downtime, no pain during treatments, and no need for advance preparation.
