Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can You Use Microbrasion If You Are In Your 30s?

A: Personal derma microabrasion cream is safe for all ages and all skin types but most doctors recommend it for patients aged 14 and older, mainly because they want to make sure that all major hormonal changes are over and the results of the procedure are as good as they can be.

Q: Is Micro Dermal Abrasion As Good As Exfoliation?

A: Regular cosmetic exfoliation are too harsh to be used on the face. Micro derm abrasion products use aluminum oxide, sodium bicarbonate or pearl micro crystals to gently abrade the skin without causing irritations or scarring.

Q: Does Dermanew Micro Derm Abrasion Work?

A: The Personal microderma product from Dermanew is effective for some people and isn't for others. There are many satisfied consumers who say that Dermanew products do 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: Can You Use Micro Dermabrasion For Face Complexion?

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

Q: Can You Use Microdermbrasion For Uneven Skin Tone?

A: Uneven skin tone is the result of a skin disorder called hyperpigmentation. It can be evened out through several sessions of microdermabrasian. The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck.

Q: Can You Use Micro Dermabrasion For Large Pores?

A: Microdem abrasion systems stimulate collagen growth which is why it works on large pores. Collagen production is stimulated through skin exfoliation. Furthermore, the vacuum function of most micro derm abrasion tools 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: Does Micro Abrasion Give Good Results?

A: According to thousands of online testimonials, home microderm abrasions gives results on fine skin imperfections. But like with most non-surgical techniques, the effects depend on your medical condition, your body's ability to recover and on who does the procedure. Most people who have tried micro dermal abrasion say the treatment worked well in treating stretch marks, acne scars, age spots, fine lines, enlarged pores, red 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 You Use Microdermabration For Burn Scars?

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

Q: Can You Use Micro Derma Brasion For Sun Spots?

A: Microdermibrasion removes 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 micrdermabrasion treatments, smaller sun spots are entirely removed while larger ones fade significantly.

Q: Can You Use Microderm For Removing Tattoo?

A: Microdermabrasia works by sandblasting the outermost skin layer but cannot abrade deeper skin layers where tattooed skin cells are which is why it cannot remove tattoos. Tatoo removal needs laser or surgical procedures which are invasive enough to reach pigmented skin cells.
