Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can You Have Microdermbrasion For Red Marks?

A: By removing the top layer of the skin, over the counter micro dermabration diminishes or even removes superficial red marks. Deeper red marks require a more invasive procedure, like deep chemical peeling or laser resurfacing.

Q: Does Philosophy Microdermabrasion Work?

A: The Self microdermabrasions systems from Philosophy works for some people and doesn't work for others. There are many happy customers who say that Philosophy system does make their skin look younger and feel smother. However, there are some unhappy consumers who say the kit is either too aggressive, causing them skin irritations and break-outs, or not very effective in removing fine scars and wrinkles. The only way to find out if the product works for you is to try to get a free sample and test the formula on your face.

Q: Side Effects Of Micro Derm Abrasion?

A: Doctors and patients alike agree that microderm abrasian has very few side effects, like temporary discoloration of the treated area, sun sensitivity, flaking and redness. These are not abnormal reactions, but you should discuss them with your doctor if they occur.
