Microdermabrasion Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How does microdermabrasion work?
A. The procedure involves "sanding" the very top layer of skin using a diamond tip and a vacuum to remove dead skin cells, dirt, and impurities that have nestled into the pores, all while smoothing the skin to expose healthier looking skin rejuvenating faster then normal. This will result in a reduction of fine lines, skin texture refinement, age and sun spots and so much more.
Q. Is the procedure safe?
A. Microdermabrasion is a safe and common procedure. It requires no downtime (unlike laser resurfacing or chemical peels), so you can return to work immediately.
Q. Why is it referred to as "Lunch time face lift"?
A. Since the treatment requires no aesthetic and has a quick recovery, microdermabrasion clients have referred to it as a "lunch time face lift". This procedure is perfect for individuals who can't take time off work for deeper chemical peels or laser therapy treatments.
Q. How many treatments are recommended?
A. Everyone reacts differently to cosmetic procedures, however, typically 4 treatments that are done 7-10 days apart are required for most individuals to achieve results.
Q. Does it hurt?
A. The procedure is painless. You will feel suction from the vacuum and a light exfoliation. There is no need for topical anesthetic or painkillers.
