Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is Micro Derma Abrasion Good For Tattoo Removal?

A: Micro derm abrasion 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.

Q: Is Micro Dermabration Good On Age Spots?

A: Age spots can be made less visible or even removed entirely through several Microdem abrasion treatments - the flow of crystals exfoliates the top layer of the skin and evens out irregular skin pigmentation.

Q: How Safe Is Using Micro Derma Brasion After Chemical Peeling?

A: Microderm is not recommended if you've had a chemical peel (glycolic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, TCA, Jessner or any other kind of peel) in the last 14 days because the two exfoliating procedures combined are too aggressive and might affect your skin's ability to recover. This applies to self systems and office treatment.

Q: Can Micro Abrasion Be Used On Rosacea?

A: Rosacea is one of the main contraindications of microdermabrasion, because the exfoliation process worsens rosacea symptoms (redness, itchiness, flaking). Self micro derm abrasion systems are not recommended are not recommended either (even though they are milder).

Q: What Can Go Wrong With Micro Dermabrasion?

A: Compared to other cosmetic procedures, microdemabrasion involves few risks: if the machine is not properly handled or has not been properly sterilized, hyperpigmentation, skin injuries or infections may occur as a result; it is also possible to inhale micro crystals used during the procedure. Aluminum oxide crystals, however, cause no allergic or adverse reactions. Eye injury from stray micro crystals used to be a concern but these days plastic or rubber goggles makes it extremely unlikely.

Q: Does Microdermabrasion Unclog Pores?

A: By exfoliating the top layer of the skin, microderm abrasion kit cleans deep into the pore and removes excess oil and dirt which causes clogged pores. Most pores are unclogged while the more stubborn ones become less visible.

Q: How Much Does A Microderm Session Cost?

A: Compared to other non-surgical procedures, specialist microdermabasion is the cheapest skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, micro abrasion 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 brasion 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 derma abrasion treatment cost around $1,600 per year.

Q: Does Microabrasion Make Your Skin Look Smoother?

A: Smoother-looking skin needs elasticity and density, both achievable through skin cell renewal. Microdermabarasion machine abrades the outermost skin layer and stimulates skin renewal. An effective skin renewal process results in increased elasticity and density. Moreover, the vacuum function of the microdermabasion equipment sucks up dirt and hardened oil to reveal an even skin texture and tone.

Q: Does Microdermabration From Dr Brandt Work?

A: The Self micoderm abrasion products from Dr Brandt works for some people and doesn't work for others. There are many happy customers who say that Dr Brandt product does 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 Microdermabasion Cause Scarring?

A: If the micodermabrasion wand or home kit is not handled properly, skin damage may occur. Extreme pressure of the flow of crystals or insisting over the same area may lead to severe scarring. Having microdermabrasion treatment while taking Accutane or immediately after a chemical peel might also cause scarring and inflammation.
