Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What Does Microbrasion Do On Acne Scarring?

A: By removing the top layer of the skin, office microdermation diminishes or even removes superficial acne scarring. Deeper acne scarring require a more invasive procedure, like a deep chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing.

Q: What Does Microderm Do On Stretch Marks?

A: Stretch marks appear on your skin as uneven skin tone and texture. By exfoliating the outermost layer of the skin, microdermabration set evens out skin tone and texture, thus reducing or totally removing stretchmarks.

Q: Does Microdermbrasion Work On The Lips.?

A: Microdemabrasion on the lips is not a very common procedure, mostly because the lips are extremely sensitive and exfoliating procedures are not recommended. Some of the commercial at-home kits can be used on the lips too, but before you try anything it's best to consult with your doctor.

Q: What Does Microdermabration Do On Blotchy Skin?

A: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Microdermabrasian kit stimulates collagen production, essential to healthy skin and also removes blotchy skin texture and tone.

Q: What Are The Prices For Microdermabration?

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

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: Can Doctor Perform Micro Dermabration?

A: Yes, doctors can perform microdermoabrasion if they have been specifically trained for it and can prove it with a diploma or certification.
