Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective treatment that has been around since the 1990s. It made headlines recently as a popular treatment for skin rejuvenation, thanks to the results it can deliver when used by aestheticians. The procedure involves applying a special type of exfoliating solution to your face with tiny crystals or diamonds, then removing the crystals with suction or a vacuum pump. This helps remove dead skin cells while also allowing an aesthetician to treat any specific areas where you may have concerns about your appearance.

What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that uses a diamond-tipped wand to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. The diamond tip gently abrades or grinds away the outermost layer of skin, revealing healthier skin beneath. Microdermabrasion has been used for decades to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores.
What conditions can microdermabrasion treat?
Microdermabrasion is used to treat a wide range of conditions. Some of the most common ones include:
- Fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars
- Hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores
- Age spots, freckles and liver spots (sun damage)
How does the procedure work?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that uses a diamond-tipped wand to gently sand the skin. The diamond tip removes the top layer of skin, which stimulates new collagen production and reveals newer healthier skin.
The process can be performed at many different levels of intensity depending on what you’re looking for and your budget. You can opt for a more aggressive treatment that offers deeper exfoliation or choose something lighter if you’re just curious about what it will feel like but want to keep costs low by skipping any high-end treatments such as lasers or fillers. What’s important is that you find someone who understands your goals and concerns so they can customize a package that meets those needs while meeting yours!
Is this treatment safe?
Microdermabrasion is a safe procedure.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment.
There are no side effects or pain involved with this treatment.
It’s quick and easy to do, usually taking just 30 minutes to complete the entire procedure.
Are there side effects of microdermabrasion?
No, there are no side effects associated with microdermabrasion. As a non-invasive procedure, the skin is not broken or cut and your body’s natural healing process will take care of any minor swelling. You may experience mild redness for a few days after treatment but this will go away on its own. If you have sensitive skin, ask your dermatologist if they have any recommendations before undergoing this procedure.
Is the treatment painful?
The treatment is painless, but you may experience some minor discomfort. During the procedure, an aesthetician will apply a mild suction to your skin with a microdermabrasion wand. This suction removes dead skin cells from your face and leaves it feeling smooth and soft. If the aesthetician applies too much pressure, you will feel pain and should let her know immediately so that she can adjust her technique accordingly.
There may be some slight tingling while the facial is being performed; however, this sensation typically goes away after a few minutes into the treatment session. The sensation felt during microdermabrasion varies depending on which machine is used and how many pores are being treated at one time—the more pores being cleaned at once means less discomfort overall because there are fewer nerves located near them (and thus less chance of feeling pain).
Microdermabrasion before and after – How do I prepare for the procedure?
Before you begin, there are some preparations you will need to make. Since microdermabrasion can cause your skin to become sun sensitive, you should not expose your face or body to direct sunlight for 24 hours after the treatment. Additionally, you should use sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher when you are out in the sun and be sure to reapply it every two hours.
Be sure that all jewelry is removed from your mouth—this includes braces, dental crowns and retainers—since they may damage the machine’s tip if worn during treatment (and no one wants their retainer melted). It’s usually best not to wear makeup either; however, if this is unavoidable, opt for waterproof mascara since normal mascara will most likely smear under anesthesia anyway!
Finally, choose loose-fitting clothing made from breathable fabrics such as cotton or linen so that any drainage won’t stain other garments as it runs down your face following treatment
Do I need to wear any bandages or dressings after I get the procedure done?
No. You shouldn’t need to wear any bandages or dressings after the procedure. As long as you don’t have any open wounds on your face.
If you do have a lot of redness or swelling, an antihistamine can help with that. It also makes it easier for your skin to heal. Apply ice packs to the area until it goes away entirely in order to avoid further damage from broken capillaries (tiny blood vessels).
Will I need to take any time off from work to heal from my microdermabrasion procedure?
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that can be done in only a few minutes and it takes very little time to heal. However, there are some things that you can do to help speed up the healing process.
- Wear sunscreen and moisturizer daily to protect your skin from further damage. You should also avoid spending too much time in the sun while your skin is healing.*
- Use products that contain glycolic acid or salicylic acid, which will help remove dead skin cells and keep pores healthy.
