Preparing for Your Treatment

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Minimize sun exposure to the treatment area for at least one week before your appointment. Sunburned or tanned skin can alter the effectiveness of the treatment and increase the risk of complications.
  • Discontinue Certain Skin Products: Stop using exfoliating creams, retinoids, and any other potentially irritating skin products at least 3 days before your session. These products may sensitize your skin, leading to increased discomfort during the treatment and unnecessary irritation afterwards.
  • Keep Skin Clean: Arrive at your appointment with clean skin, free of makeup, lotions, and other products. This ensures that the microdermabrasion device can work effectively without any barriers. We can also clean the skin in the office if needed.
  • Stay Hydrated: Hydration is key for healthy skin, so make sure you’re drinking plenty of water in the days leading up to and after your treatment.

Post-Treatment Care:

  • Moisturize and Protect: Your skin may feel drier than usual after microdermabrasion. Use a gentle, non-comedogenic moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. Additionally, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher daily, as your skin will be more sensitive to the sun.
  • Avoid Harsh Products: For at least one week post-treatment, steer clear of harsh chemical products, including retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), and any products containing alcohol.
  • Resist Touching or Picking: Your skin will be sensitive and may peel slightly. It’s crucial not to pick at or peel off any flaking skin to avoid scarring.
  • Stay Hydrated and Follow a Gentle Skin Care Routine: Continue to drink plenty of water and follow a gentle skincare routine. Avoid exfoliating your skin for at least one week after treatment to allow your skin to heal properly.

Microdermabrasion FAQs

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skincare treatment that uses a specialized device to gently remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells. This process reveals the healthier, more vibrant skin beneath, improving texture, tone, and promoting new cell growth.

How effective is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is highly effective in improving skin texture, reducing the appearance of fine lines, and promoting a more even skin tone.

Is microdermabrasion the best exfoliator for sensitive skin?

Microdermabrasion can be an effective exfoliating treatment for sensitive skin when performed with care and by a skilled professional. The key is the gentle nature of the treatment, which avoids the use of harsh chemicals or aggressive scrubbing that can irritate sensitive skin. However, it’s important to note that everyone’s skin is unique, and what works best can vary. Individuals with highly sensitive skin may experience redness or irritation. It’s crucial to consult with a skincare specialist who can assess your skin’s specific needs and may perform a patch test or recommend a less frequent treatment schedule.

Is microdermabrasion a good exfoliator for dry skin?

Microdermabrasion can be beneficial for dry skin by removing dead skin cells that make the skin look dull and helping to promote the turnover of new cells. This process can improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture, thereby reducing dryness over time. After microdermabrasion, the skin typically absorbs moisturizers and skin care products more effectively, enhancing hydration. However, individuals with dry skin should ensure their skin is properly moisturized and protected following the treatment, as the exfoliation process can initially lead to increased dryness. While microdermabrasion can be an effective exfoliating option for dry skin, it’s important to follow up with appropriate skincare products that hydrate and nourish the skin. As with sensitive skin, consultation with a skincare professional is advised to tailor the treatment to your specific skin condition and needs.

Does microdermabrasion hurt?

Most clients experience minimal discomfort during the treatment, describing it as a light scratching sensation.

What's the difference between microdermabrasion vs microneedling?

Microdermabrasion focuses on exfoliating the top layer of the skin for texture and tone improvement. Microneedling involves puncturing the skin with tiny needles to stimulate collagen production, targeting deeper issues like acne scars and deep wrinkles. For questions about which skin care service may work best for you, please contact us.

Whats the difference between microdermabrasion vs chemical peel?

Microdermabrasion physically exfoliates the skin’s outer layer, while chemical peels use acids at various concentrations to remove skin cells chemically. Chemical peels can target deeper layers of skin depending on their strength.
