Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is Micro Dermabrasion Effective For Tattoo Removal?

A: Micodermabrasion 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: Microdermabasion Is It Good For Acne Prone Skin?

A: Office microderma abrasion machine is safe and effective for many patients with acne-prone skin, but if your skin breaks out a lot or you suffer from moderate to severe acne then this procedure is not the solution for you (the exfoliating process may cause irritation and further breakouts). Some people with acne-prone skin have found that some or all over the counter micro dermabration kits makes them breakout. This could be caused by certain ingredients found in the micro-crystal cream and is not necessarily linked to the way microdermabrasion works. If do it yourself kits make you breakout, consider professional microdermal abrasion.

Q: Does Microdermabration Help With Sun Damaged Skin?

A: Microderm abrasion products 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 microbrasion treatments, the skin cells damaged by the sun are entirely removed and new, healthy skin cells take their place.

Q: How Can Microdermabrasion Make A Difference On Surgical Scars?

A: Microdermal abrasion pulverizes away the dead skin layer (the outermost layer) in order to even out skin texture and diminish superficial surgical scars. More severe surgical scarring requires more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing.

Q: Can You Have Microdermabasion While On Accutane (Isotretinoin)?

A: Microdermabration is not recommended for patients taking Accutane. This acne treatment works by reducing the amount of oil produced by the skin's sebaceous glands which reduces the skin's ability to recover after body or facial exfoliation. Having micro dermabration while on Accutane may cause permanent scarring. This applies to do-it-yourself kits and specialist treatment.

Q: Micro Derm Abrasion Is It Good For Rosacea?

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

Q: Microabrasion Is It Recommended On Blackheads?

A: By exfoliating the top layer of the skin, microderma abrasion machines clean 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 Microderm Help Even Out Skin Tone?

A: Uneven skin tone is the result of a skin disorder called hyperpigmentation. It can be evened out through several sessions of macrodermabrasion. The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck.

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: How Safe Is Having Micro Derma Brasion If I Have Psoriasis?

A: Psoriasis patients should not have microdermabrasions 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 microdermabrasion as well, despite its mild effect.
