Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I Use Micro Dermabration On Stretch Marks?

A: Stretch marks appear on your skin as uneven skin tone and texture. By exfoliating the outermost layer of the skin, derma microabrasion cream evens out skin tone and texture, thus reducing or totally removing stretchmarks.

Q: Can You Use Microderm If You Have Psoriasis?

A: Psoriasis patients should not have microabrasions This procedures is somewhat invasive to the skin (any skin rejuvenation treatment is to some extent) and can worsen their condition. This applies to personal micodermabrasion as well, despite its mild effect.

Q: Can I Use Microdermabrasion On Enlarged Pores?

A: Microbrasion kits stimulate collagen growth which is why it's effective on enlarged pores. Collagen production is stimulated through skin exfoliation. Furthermore, the vacuum function of most micro abrasion machines sucks out hardened oil, dust and other dirt which may clog your pores. This way, the oil in the glands can again reach the surface of your skin and your pores can return to their natural shape and size.

Q: Can I Use Micro Dermabrasion On Tattoos?

A: You can safely have microderm abrasian on skin with tattoos with no risk or side effects. This skin rejuvenation procedure is too mild to affect tattoos.

Q: Can I Use Microabrasion If I Have Dry Skin?

A: Over The Counter microdermibration set is appropriate for all skin types (including those with dry skin ) because this procedure sandblasts only the outermost skin layer which is made of dead skin cells. There's no damage to live tissue which could cause scarring or severe irritation. The exfoliation process involved in beauty salon micro derm abrasion helps the skin renew itself quicker and more effectively.

Q: Micro Derm Abrasion Is It Safe?

A: Thanks to its non-invasive nature, home microdermoabrasion has virtually no risks and no side effects. There are some contraindications, however: patients who took Accutane for the previous 6 months, pregnant and nursing women, people suffering from active herpes lesions, malignant tumors, keratosis, active rosacea or weeping acne should not have microdermabration.

Q: Are There Side Effects With Micro Abrasion?

A: Dermatologists and patients alike agree that microderm 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 Much Does Micro Dermabrasion Cost?

A: Compared to other non-invasive procedures, spa microdermabarasion is the least expensive skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, microderm 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 derma 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 derm abrasion treatment cost around $1,600 per year.

Q: Can I Use Micro Dermal Abrasion On Acne Marks?

A: By removing the top layer of the skin, home micro abrasion diminishes or even removes superficial acne marks. Deeper acne marks require a more invasive procedure, like a deep chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing.

Q: Are Microdermbrasion And Chemical Peels Equally Effective?

A: Chemical peels involve applying a mild acid solution to the skin that exfoliates the upper layers of the skin, while derma microabrasion is a mechanical peel that uses a stream of crystals (or a diamond tip wand) and suction to gently exfoliate the skin. Deeper chemical peels can be more effective than micro dermabrasion treatment. because they exfoliate a thicker layer of skin, thus being able to remove deeper skin imperfections. On the other hand, a deep chemical peel requires 14 days downtime and involves serious side effects like flaking, redness and swelling.
