Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who Can Do Micro Abrasion?

A: Professional microdermbrasion can only be performed by trained professionals. Because it can damage the top layer of the skin if not used properly, microdermabrasions tools should only be operated by people with specific theoretical and practical training. A surgeon, dermatologist, esthetician or nurse can perform this procedure professionally after they have been specifically trained by an authorized institution (a medical facility, a cosmetic academy or a specialized company). You can use personal microdermabrasion sets by yourself if you carefully follow the instructions.

Q: Micro Dermal Abrasion Is It Recommended For Sun Spots?

A: Derma microabrasion sets remove the outermost layer of the skin by sandblasting it with a jet of micro crystals. During the procedure, part of the pigment is physically eliminated and, at the same time, collagen production is stimulated so that your skin regains its density and elasticity. After 6 to 12 micro derma abrasion treatments, smaller sun spots are entirely removed while larger ones fade significantly.

Q: Micro Abrasion Is It Recommended For Surgical Scars?

A: Micrdermabrasion pulverizes away the dead skin layer (the outermost layer) in order to even out skin texture and improve superficial surgical scars. Deeper surgical scarring needs more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peels or laser skin rejuvenation.

Q: Does Micro Dermabrasion Work After Chemical Peels?

A: Microabrasion is not recommended if you've had chemical peeling (glycolic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, TCA, Jessner or any other kind of peel) in the last 14 days because the two exfoliating procedures combined are too aggressive and might affect your skin's ability to recover. This applies to do-it-yourself system and salon treatment.

Q: Are There Side Effects Associated With Micro Derma Abrasion?

A: Surgeons and patients alike agree that microderm abrasion 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.

Q: How Can Microderma Help Get Rid Of Clogged Pores?

A: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Micro derma brasion machine stimulates collagen production, essential to healthy skin and also evens out skin texture and tone.

Q: Can I Have Micro Derma Abrasion On The Feet?

A: Self micodermabrasion creams can be used on your feet as long as it's especially formulated as a body micro skin abrasion product. Using a face microdermabrasian machine on your feet will not have the desired effect because it's much too mild to have a significant effect on your feet. Dermatologist-performed micro dermabration is not suitable for use on the feet because the skin is too thin in that area. However, having microderm abrasions on your heels should work but better ask your doctor first.
