Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the skin by removing dead skin cells, improving skin texture, and promoting a more youthful and radiant complexion. During a microdermabrasion facial, a handheld device is used to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin, known as the stratum corneum. This exfoliation process is typically done using fine crystals or a diamond-tipped wand, which gently abrade the skin’s surface, simultaneously exfoliating the skin and suctions away the removed dead cells.

By eliminating dead skin cells, microdermabrasion helps unclog pores, reduce fine lines, diminish mild acne scars, and even out skin tone. This combination of exfoliation and suction provides a deep cleansing effect, leaving the skin smoother and more refined. It requires minimal downtime, making it a convenient option for individuals seeking a revitalised and refreshed appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion facials?

Microdermabrasion facials offer several benefits, making them popular in skincare clinics and spas. Apart from improving skin texture and tone, microdermabrasion can reduce the appearance of age spots, sun damage and mild acne scars.

Additionally, it enhances the effectiveness of skincare products by allowing them to penetrate the skin more deeply, maximising their benefits. The procedure is generally painless and requires no downtime, making it convenient for individuals with busy lifestyles.

Is a microdermabrasion facial right for me?

Microdermabrasion facials can be tailored to suit individual skin types and concerns. The intensity of the treatment can be adjusted based on the patient’s specific needs. A series of sessions is often recommended to achieve optimal results, with treatments typically spaced several weeks apart.

Regular maintenance sessions can also be scheduled to sustain the improved skin texture and appearance.

What should I do after my microdermabrasion facial treatment?

Following a microdermabrasion facial, it’s crucial to follow the post-treatment care instructions provided by the practitioner. This often includes using gentle skincare products, avoiding sun exposure, and applying moisturisers to keep the skin hydrated.

Proper aftercare ensures that the skin heals effectively and reduces the risk of any potential side effects.

How does microdermabrasion work?

During a microdermabrasion facial, a handheld device is used to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin, known as the stratum corneum. This exfoliation process is typically done using fine crystals or a diamond-tipped wand, which gently abrade the skin’s surface, simultaneously exfoliating the skin and suctions away the removed dead cells.

How long does a microdermabrasion facial take?

A typical microdermabrasion face treatment takes between 20 and 30 minutes. However, if you want your neck or other parts of your body treated, it may take up to an hour.

How many microdermabrasion treatments are required?

Your specialist will give you an idea of the number of microdermabrasion treatments needed for best results. Major changes become visible after the fifth session, even though patients have said they observed improvements after their second. Generally, six to eight microdermabrasion treatments, scheduled around two to three weeks apart are recommended, which allows the skin time to recover between sessions.

How often do I need to have a touch-up microdermabrasion treatment?

You may have to schedule another treatment once every two or three months to maintain the effects.

Does a microdermabrasion facial hurt?

Microdermabrasion treatments are virtually painless. Some patients have reported itchiness or stinginess when the microcrystals come in contact with their skin. You may feel some discomfort around the eyes, but your skin gets used to the sensation as the treatment progresses.

How do I prepare for microdermabrasion?

No pre-medication is needed, but you may be advised to stop using some medications that may increase the risk of major bleeding, such as Retin-A, Renova, Differin, or glycolic acid products. You should not have any waxing, laser treatments, or excessive sun exposure at least a week prior to treatment.

What’s the downtime after microdermabrasion?

There is virtually no downtime after a microdermabrasion facial, and you can return to work as soon as your facial is finished. If your skin looks red, similar to a mild sunburn, you can cover it with light makeup.
