Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does Microdermal Abrasion Help Remove Hyper Pigmentation?

A: Microdermibrasion product is effective on hyper pigmentation. The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck. Several professional microdermabasion sessions are required to even out skin tone and get rid of hyper pigmentation.

Q: Where To Get Micro Derma Brasion?

A: You can get self microderma abrasion sets online (from commercial sites like Amazon or E-bay, beauty sites or cosmetic company sites), drugstores, beauty shops, beauty salons and spas.

Q: Who Is Micro Dermal Abrasion Suitable For?

A: A suitable candidate for microdermabrasions is anyone over 14 who wants to get rid of superficial acne scars, blotchy skin, large pores, age or sun spots, fine wrinkles or uneven skin tone and texture. All skin types and colors can be treated with microdermabration. But if you are pregnant, nursing or suffering from a chronic skin disease, or have been on Accutane or had laser surgery recently, consult with a specialist before having this treatment.

Q: Microdermabrasion Is It Expensive?

A: Compared to other non-invasive procedures, salon cosmetic microderm abrasion is the cheapest skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, microderm abrasions kits cost between $15 and $200, depending on contents and brand. Kits that include a rotating hand-held device designed to massage the crystal cream onto your face are the most expensive (and the most effective). The price of a single micro derm abrasion treatment at a beauty salon or spa varies between $75 and $200. One full face session at a surgeon or dermatologist office costs somewhere between $100 and $300, not including initial consultation fees (which may cost an additional $150). You may need an average of 9 treatments and 4 maintenance sessions for best results which makes a full micro abrasion treatment cost around $1,600 per year.

Q: What Does Microabrasion Do For Acne Scars?

A: By removing the top layer of the skin, self microdermasion diminishes or even removes superficial acne scars. Deeper acne scars require a more invasive procedure, like deep chemical peeling or laser resurfacing.

Q: Where To Buy Micro Derma Abrasion?

A: At-home microderma kits can be bought online (from commercial sites like Amazon or E-bay, beauty sites or cosmetic company sites), drugstores, beauty shops, beauty salons and spas.

Q: Does Microbrasion Make Pimple Scars Smaller?

A: By removing the top layer of skin, microdermibration pulverizes away the dead skin layer (the outermost layer) in order to even out skin texture and improve superficial pimple scars. Deeper pimple scarring needs more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peels or laser facial resurface.

Q: Is Micro Dermal Abrasion Recommended For Fine Lines?

A: Micro skin abrasion cream is effective on fine lines. It evens out skin texture through abrasion of the top layer of skin. The effect is a reduction or even total removal of fine lines.

Q: Does Face Micro Abrasion Work On The Body.?

A: It depends. Usually, face formulas are a bit more delicate. The skin on your back may be thicker and impossible to exfoliate with the mild micro crystals in the product, so the cream may have no effect. It won't harm your skin. The worst case scenario is that you will be wasting some expensive product without any result. You'd better search for a microdermabrasions product designed specially for the body.

Q: What Are The Prices For Microdermabration?

A: Compared to other non-surgical procedures, microdermabrastion is the cheapest skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, microdermbrasion kits cost between $15 and $200, depending on contents and brand.
