How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
The microdermabrasion system is designed to gently exfoliate your skin and remove the damaged, outermost layer. Our office will use either use a handheld device or a diamond-tipped wand to buff microscopic crystals over the treatment area, removing damaged and dead cells. During the 30-minute procedure, you will feel a slight vibrating or warming sensation on the treatment area along with light suction. Although most patients can see improvement in the appearance of their skin after the first session, we may recommend follow-up procedures depending on the severity of your skin damage.
Microdermabrasion is very safe and highly effective, and most side effects after the procedure are temporary. The treatment may leave your skin looking flushed for about 20 to 30 minutes after your session. To avoid sensitivity and dryness, it is important to use moisturizer and protect your skin from sun exposure after treatment.
