Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I Apply Makeup After Microdermabration?

A: Some specialists recommend using mild make-up to cover the redness on your face while others say that any type of liquid or powder foundation or any other type of cover up is absolutely forbidden in the first 2-3 days after micrdermabrasion The best thing to do is ask the doctor who performed the procedure whether you can use foundation or not immediately after the treatment. All doctors agree, though, that some mascara and lip gloss are completely harmless.

Q: Personal Micro Derm Abrasion What Does It Do?

A: micro abrasion treats uneven skin texture, clogged pores or enlarged, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, acne scars, fine wrinkles, sun spots and dull skin by removing the top layer of the skin with a high-pressure jet of micro crystals or using a diamond-tipped wand.

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: Microderm Abrasion Is It Recommended For Rosacea?

A: Rosacea is one of the main contraindications of microdermabrasion, because the exfoliation process worsens rosacea symptoms (redness, itchiness, flaking). Over the counter microderm abrasions units are not recommended either (even though they are milder).

Q: How Safe Is Having Micro Derma Brasion?

A: Thanks to its non-invasive nature, self micoderm abrasion 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 microdermal abrasion.

Q: Can Blacks Have Microderm Abrasion?

A: Personal macrodermabrasion cream is appropriate for all skin colors (including African American 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 doctor-performed micro derma brasion helps the skin renew itself quicker and more effectively.

Q: Who Can Perform Microderm?

A: Professional microdermation can only be performed by trained professionals. Because it can damage the top layer of the skin if not used properly, micro derma abrasion machines 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 home microdermabrasions systems by yourself if you carefully follow the instructions.

Q: Can Micro Dermabration Be Used For Liver Spots?

A: Liver spots can be reduced or even removed entirely through several microdermibration sessions - the flow of crystals exfoliates the top layer of the skin and evens out skin tone.

Q: Can Micro Derma Brasion Work On Keratosis?

A: Keratosis sufferers should not use macrodermabrasion This procedures is somewhat invasive to the skin (any skin rejuvenation treatment is to some extent) and can worsen their condition. This applies to over the counter micodermabrasion as well, despite its mild effect.

Q: Can Microbrasion Be Used For Wrinkles?

A: Micro derma abrasion machine works on fine wrinkles. It evens out skin texture through abrasion of the top layer of skin. The effect is a reduction or even total removal of superficial wrinkles. Deeper wrinkles need a more invasive non-surgical technique, like a deep chemical peel or laser resurfacing.
