Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How Safe Is Having Microdermbrasion For Young Women?

A: Microdem abrasion is safe for young women (and men) of all skin types but most doctors recommend it for girls 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 Do-It-Yourself Microderma As Good As Spa?

A: Both DIY and spa microderm abrasions work on the same principle and have the same reported results: reduction of fine lines, superficial scars, age spots and acne scars. But DIY micro dermabration procedures cannot offer the same effectiveness you get from spa microdermabrasions treatment on more severe skin imperfections.

Q: Can Micro Derma Abrasion Leave Your Face Peeling?

A: Peeling is not uncommon after professional microderm abrasions even though in theory it should not happen. There's no reason for panic, but a phone call to your doctor is a good idea.

Q: Does Microdermal Abrasion Make Skin Texture Smooth?

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

Q: What Happens To Your Skin After Microderma?

A: First, clean your face immediately with a wet microdermabrasia cloth and hydrating toner to remove micro crystals residue and dead skin cells. Once the skin has dried completely, apply a rich moisturizer across the treated area. Continue to apply the moisturizer for 4-6 days to protect your face from excessive exfoliation. Don't leave the house without applying a generous amount of sunscreen. If you want to speed up the recovery process, you can use copper based lotions (to heal the skin), Vitamin A, C and E formulas (to increase skin elasticity) and thermal water absorbing cloths (to calm down any swellings or itchiness).

Q: How Deep Does Microabrasion Go?

A: Micro derma abrasion abrades the outer layer of the skin (about 10-20 microns of skin cells). This layer is only made of dead skin cells which is why this procedure is not considered to be invasive.

Q: How Can Micro Dermabration Make Blackheads Less Noticeable?

A: By exfoliating the top layer of the skin, micro dermabration cream cleans deep into the pore and removes excess oil and dirt that clog pores - which causes blackheads. Most blackheads are removed while more stubborn blackheads are reduced.

Q: Does Micro Dermabration Help Your Face?

A: By resurfacing the top layer of the skin, self microdermibration does make a difference. After a full treatment of 6-12 sessions, most people notice significant improvement in skin tone and texture. The face looks younger, feels smoother, and has fewer superficial scars, fine wrinkles, enlarged or clogged pores. More severe skin imperfections require more invasive procedures like laser or chemical peeling. Home microdermabasion is also not as effective as office microderma.

Q: How Can Microderm Abrasion Make Sun Damaged Skin Smooth?

A: Microdermabrastion creams remove 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 microabrasions treatments, the skin cells damaged by the sun are entirely removed and new, healthy skin cells take their place.

Q: Is Microbrasion Recommended After Glycolic Acid Peels?

A: You should not have micro abrasion if you've had a glycolic acid peel (or any other kind of chemical peeling) 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 kit and doctor-performed treatment.
