Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How Old To Perform Microderm?

A: There is no official contraindication regarding age for Microdem abrasion patients, but it would be best to wait until you are 14 before you have it. If you have it earlier, the hormonal changes and the fact that your skin hasn't yet fully formed all of its recovering systems may affect the final outcome of the treatment.

Q: Is Micro Derma Abrasion Good For Lupus?

A: Lupus patients should not have microdemabrasion This procedures is somewhat invasive to the skin (any skin rejuvenation treatment is to some extent) and can worsen their condition. This applies to home micro dermal abrasion as well, despite its mild effect.

Q: What Is Microdermbrasion?

A: Office microabrasion is a non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedure performed either at home, in beauty salons, spas or medical offices. It works by gently abrading the outermost layer of the skin with the help of micro crystals or diamond tipped wands.

Q: Can Microderm Go Wrong?

A: Compared to other cosmetic procedures, microdermabration 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: Can Microdermabasion Be Used After Chemical Peeling?

A: Micro dermabration 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 home products and office treatment.

Q: What Does Microdermabration Do For Tattoo Removal?

A: Microabrasions works by sandblasting the outermost skin layer but cannot abrade deeper skin layers where tattooed skin cells are which is why it cannot be used for tattoo removal. Removing tattoos requires laser or surgical procedures which are invasive enough to reach pigmented skin cells.

Q: How Expensive Is A Microbrasion Session?

A: Compared to other non-invasive procedures, specialist microdermabrasian is the least expensive skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, microderm 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 microdermbrasion 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 microdermabration treatment cost around $1,600 per year.

Q: Microderm Abrasion How Does It Work?

A: Specialist micro dermabration is performed by a doctor, surgeon or trained nurse who uses a hand-held, sandblaster-like device to spray and circulate a high pressure flow of aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin. The crystals gently exfoliate the very top layer of the skin. This hand-held tool also contains a vacuum system that sucks away the debris, dead skin cells and used micro crystals.

Q: What Are The Advantages Of Microderma?

A: One major advantage is the minimum risks and side effects associated with micro dermabration Unlike dermabrasion or laser skin resurfacing, microdermabration takes no more than 30-60 minutes and can be successfully used on the face as well as the body (neck, chest, back and hands). If time or money is an issue, the procedure is also available as a cheap personal microabrasion system (well known brands include Neutrogena, Mary Kay, L'Oreal, Oil of Olay, Homedics, etc). It removes only the very top skin layer which is why it's considered to be the least invasive cosmetic procedure. It doesn't require anesthesia and has virtually no down time after treatment. It can be performed on all skin types and colors without risks and side effects.

Q: How Can Micro Dermabration Make A Difference On Rosacea?

A: Rosacea is one of the main contraindications of microdermabrasion, because the exfoliation process worsens rosacea symptoms (redness, itchiness, flaking). OTC microbrasion products are not recommended either (even though they are milder).
