What Can Microdermabrasion Do For Me?
Microdermabrasion can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, helps fight acne and remove acne scarring, evens skin tone, eliminates white and black heads, minimizes large pores and revitalizes dull skin. Microdermabrasion helps skin regeneration by increasing its elasticity and collagen production. The skin looks fresh and feels smooth as soon as treatment is over. With microdermabrasion, there is no recovery time and no discomfort. *Results May Vary
How Many Treatments Are Required?
Your aesthetician can give you a rough idea of the number of microdermabrasions needed for best results. Major changes are obvious after the fifth session, even though most patients say they observed improvements after the first one to two. Most of the time 6 microdermabrasion treatments, scheduled around two weeks apart, so the skin has time to recover between microdermabrasion sessions. After the recommended number of sessions, you may have to schedule another microdermabrasion once every two or three months, to maintain the effects.
Will I Experience Any Discomfort During Treatment? Does It Hurt?
Microdermabrasion treatment is painless. Some patients have reported some itchiness or stinginess when the diamond tip comes in contact with their skin. You may feel some discomfort around the eyes, but as microdermabrasion treatment continues, your skin gets used to sensation. It feels like the mild facial massage from a special wand. Your face may appear a little pinkish in the first 24 hours, but you should not experience any itchiness or pain.
What Should I Expect After Treatment?
You will have a sunscreen hydrating moisturizer put on your skin after microdermabrasion, to avoid sun damage after leaving the office. Some redness might occur on treated areas, but they generally disappear after a few hours. During the first 24 hours, your skin may feel dry, similarly to effects of a mild wind or sunburn. Use lots of moisturizer during the first few days. Avoid sun exposure for at least two week after the treatment, don’t use any peeling products for the next 3-4 days and avoid full-face make up (liquid foundation or pressed powder) if possible.
