Microdermabrasion FAQ

How does the Microdermabrasion treatment work?
The skin is washed to remove excess oil and dirt. Then, a medical professional targets a stream of fine aluminum oxide crystals over the area. The crystals abrade away old, dead skin cells, which the vacuum then picks up with gentle suction. This promotes the growth of collagen and new rejuvenated skin. Moisturizers and sun block are then applied to the treated area.
How many treatments are required?
The specialist can give a rough idea of the number of Microdermabrasion sections you need for the best result. Initially 5 to 8 treatments spaced 7-10 days apart are recommended for most clients. Acne scars or discolorations may require more treatments. Maintenance treatments every 2 or 3 months may be necessary to maintain results.
