A: Compared to other non-invasive procedures, spa microdermabrasia is the cheapest skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, microbrasion 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 microdermabration 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 microderma treatment cost around $1,600 per year.
A: Compared to other cosmetic procedures, cosmetic microderm abrasion 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.
A: Self micro dermal abrasion tool is appropriate for all skin types (including those with sensitive 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 office microdermabasion helps the skin renew itself quicker and more effectively.
A: You can safely have micoderm abrasion on skin with tattoos with no risk or side effects. This skin rejuvenation procedure is too mild to affect tattoos.
A: Professional microdermbrasion can only be performed by trained professionals. Because it can damage the top layer of the skin if not used properly, microdermabrasions tools 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 personal microdermabrasion sets by yourself if you carefully follow the instructions.
A: By removing the top layer of skin, microabrasions evens out skin texture and helps reduce superficial surgical scars. Deeper surgical scarring needs more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peeling or laser skin resurface.
A: By removing the top layer of the skin, over the counter microdermoabrasion diminishes or even removes superficial acne scarring. Deeper acne scarring require a more invasive procedure, like a deep chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing.
A: Redness following microderma fades in a few hours after the procedure.
A: Younger-looking skin needs elasticity and density, both achievable through skin cell renewal. Microdermal abrasion kit 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 micoderm abrasion tool sucks up dirt and hardened oil to reveal an even skin texture and tone.
A: Microdermasion machine is effective on hyper pigmentation. The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck. Several specialist microdermabrasian sessions are required to even out skin tone and get rid of hyper pigmentation.
