Microdermabrasion FAQ’s

Microdermabrasion Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Microdermabrasion and how does it work?

Microdermabrasion is a clinically proven technique for treating fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, stretch marks and hyperpigmentation. This technology planes and refines skin texture allowing your skins’ natural regeneration process to diminish imperfections. This process can result in up to a 30% increase in the elasticity of the skin restoring confidence to the most visible part of your body.

This non-invasive procedure is performed with a light suction of fine crystals that look like fine ground sugar. These crystals are passed across the skin at a high rate of speed, resulting in an abrasion. This process stimulates circulation beneath the surface of the skin, leaving the skin rejuvenated. Unlike lasers, there is no generation of heat, so the procedure can be administers on all different skin types. No anesthesia is required. The process requires no healing time and can be done on your lunch break. Results are immediate with smooth, glowing skin and overall tone and texture improvements.

3. Does Microdermabrasion hurt?

Microdermabrasion is a relatively painless procedure. The treatment feels like a mild biting sensation, similar to the feeling of stinging rain drops.


4. How long does a Microdermabrasion session take, and how many treatments will I need?

Treatment times and number of treatments will vary, depending on your skin type and the condition it is in.

6. Am I a good candidate for Microdermabrasion?
