Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I Have Microdermabration On Acne?

A: Some doctors say that OTC microdermabasion can work on mild acne without any risk of irritation or break-outs. There are a few studies published online that show that micro dermabration can be an effective treatment for mild acne. Other specialists recommend against using microderm abrasion as acne treatment, especially on moderate or severe acne. Acne makes the skin more sensitive and prone to breakouts and exfoliation can cause severe scarring and additional inflammation.

Q: Does Neutrogena Micro Dermabrasion Work?

A: The OTC microderm kit from Neutrogena works for some people and doesn't work for others. There are many happy customers who say that Neutrogena kits does make their face feel smother and look young. On the other hand, there are some unhappy people who say the kit is either too harsh, causing them skin irritation and breakouts, or not very effective in reducing superficial scars and fine wrinkles. The only way to find out if the kit is effective for you is to try to obtain a free sample and test the formula on your skin.

Q: Is Microderma As Good As AHAs?

A: AHAs are used as light chemical peels. They remove the uppermost layer of skin. Light chemical peels and micrdermabrasion are both non-invasive procedures that can also be performed at-home with special consumer kits. Neither has any major risks or side-effects and both have limited effectiveness. They can help diminish or even remove superficial scarring and wrinkles, age spots, stretch marks and uneven skin texture. For deeper skin imperfections, you may need a more invasive procedure.

Q: Can I Apply Facial Mask After Microabrasion?

A: The only type of facial mask allowed after office microdermoabrasion is a nourishing or hydrating mask -- they help skin recover quicker. Exfoliating masks are too aggressive after microderm, and anti-aging masks will have no effect for a few days while your skin is still recovering.

Q: Can I Have Microdermabasion On Skin Complexion?

A: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Microderm abrasian kit stimulates collagen production, essential to a beautiful skin complexion and also evens out skin texture and tone.

Q: Is Microdermal Abrasion Expensive?

A: Compared to other non-surgical procedures, doctor-performed microderma abrasion is the least expensive skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, microdermabrasions 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 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 microderm treatment cost around $1,600 per year.

Q: Can I Have Microderm Abrasion On Hyper Pigmentation?

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

Q: Does Microdermabrasion Work?

A: According to thousands of online testimonials, microdermabration does work on superficial skin imperfections. But like in most non-surgical procedures, results depend on your medical condition, on your body's ability to recover and on who performs the procedure on you. Most patients who have tried microbrasion say the treatment worked well in reducing fine lines, age spots, enlarged pores, acne scars, red marks, stretch marks and dull skin More serious skin imperfections cannot be treated with this non-invasive technique, because it only removes the top layer of the skin, not being able to reach deeper layers of skin.

Q: Can I Have Microbrasion On Scars?

A: By removing the top layer of skin, microdermal abrasion evens out skin texture and helps remove superficial scars. Deeper scarring needs more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peeling or laser facial resurfacing.

Q: Can I Have Microdermal Abrasion On Tattoos?

A: You can use microdermabra on tattooed skin with no risk or side effects. This skin resurfacing technique is too mild to remove tattoos.
