Microdermabrasion Q & A

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing procedure to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and acne scars. With microdermabrasion, a specially trained technician uses a small handheld tool to buff away the surface layers of your skin to reveal healthy skin underneath that is free from blemishes and other imperfections like scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Microdermabrasion is a popular alternative to chemical peels and laser resurfacing and offers less downtime and skin sensitivity than these other options. Rather than using a chemical to exfoliate the skin, microdermabrasion uses a physical exfoliant to remove dead skin cells on the surface of your skin.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

During a microdermabrasion session, your technician uses a minimally abrasive handheld tool to gently sand away the top layers of your skin where you experience uneven texture and uneven pigment. This removes outer layers of rough skin to reveal healthy, fresh skin underneath.

Microdermabrasion can also improve the tightness and overall appearance of your skin by increasing collagen production. Collagen is an elastic fiber in your skin that is responsible for a taut, toned appearance, especially around your cheekbones and jawline. This can help you look younger without the need for injections or surgery.

What Can I Expect During a Microdermabrasion Treatment?

When you arrive for a microdermabrasion session, your technician first cleans and prepares your skin for treatment. You’ll lay down on a comfortable chair or padded table and wear protective eye gear to avoid irritation to your eyes during the procedure.

Once you’re ready, your technician places the microdermabrasion tool against your skin and moves the wand in small circles over your skin. Depending on the extent of the procedure, it typically lasts 30-60 minutes. You’ll feel a mild rough, rubbing sensation on your skin during the treatment.

Afterward, your technician cleans and moisturizes your skin. You may notice some mild redness and irritation for one to two days after your treatment and you may need additional sun protection — like a hat or a high-SPF sunscreen — to protect your skin as it heals.

Microdermabrasion can turn back the clock and give you the youthful glow you used to have years ago. Experience the benefits by scheduling a visit online or by phone at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness now.
