Frequently Asked Questions
Who would benefit from Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion works on all skin types and colors. It makes subtle changes, causing no skin color change or scarring.
How does Microdermabrasion work?
It uses a diamond-tipped wand, to slough off the top layer (epidermis) of your skin and stimulate new skin growth. This technique also helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. It is essentially powerful mechanical exfoliation, leaving your skin rejuvenated and looking softer and brighter.
How long does it take?
Microdermabrasion is quick and painless. A treatment usually takes about 45 minutes and there is no down-time. Some people even refer to it as a “lunchtime peel.”
What should I expect after my treatment?
Skin is temporarily pink but fully recovers within 24 hours. It is important to realize that you have taken off the outermost layer of the skin, which is also its protection, so this is not the time to go to the beach. Be careful with your skin for a few days after the microdermabrasion treatment: don’t do vigorous exercise and don’t expose your skin to the sun. Wear a gentle physical sunscreen, even if its a cloudy day.
