Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How Can Microdermabrasion Make Acne Scars Go Away?

A: By removing the top layer of the skin, personal microderm abrasian diminishes or even removes superficial acne scars. Deeper acne scars require a more invasive procedure, like deep chemical peeling or laser resurfacing.

Q: Is Micro Dermabration Good For Young Women?

A: Microdermal 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: How Is Microbrasion Different From Facials?

A: Photo Facial (or Intense Pulsed Light Therapy) is a non-invasive procedure capable of diminishing or removing age spots (liver spots), fine wrinkles (rhytids), facial flushing, redness, broken capillaries, freckles, minor sun damage, tattoos, varicose veins, spider veins, flat birth marks and hypo-pigmentation. Unfortunately, IPL is not recommended for dark skinned people and persons suffering from oily skin. In short, IPL and microdermabrastion have similar results and are both non-invasive, but.

Q: Can You Use Microdermabasion On Your Eye Lids?

A: OTC micro skin abrasion sets should not be used on your eye-lids even if it's especially formulated as a face microderma abrasion system. Using a face microdermibration set on your eye lids may result in irritation or scarring (the lids are too thin and can easily be damaged). Surgeon-performed microdermabrasion is not suitable for use on eye lids either.

Q: How Can Micro Dermabration Make Skin Complexion Less Visible?

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

Q: How Can Microdermabrasion Make Irregular Pigmentation Improve?

A: Micro dermabration system is effective on uneven pigmentation The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck. Several professional microderma sessions are required to even out skin tone and get rid of irregular pigmentation.

Q: Can You See Results From The First Microderma?

A: Yes, results are visible after the first microdermabrasian. especially if we are talking about specialist microdermabrasions which is more effective than at-home sets. Best results are obtained after 6 to 12 sessions (depending on your expectations and severity of skin imperfections), respectively one month of use for one of the personal microbrasion kit.

Q: Is Micro Dermal Abrasion Dangerous After Accutane (Isotretinoin)?

A: Microdermibration 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 microderma while on Accutane may cause permanent scarring. This applies to over the counter system and professional treatment.

Q: How Safe Is Using Microderm For Black Skin?

A: Professional microdermibration tool is appropriate for all skin colors (including black 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 beauty salon microdermabrasions helps the skin renew itself quicker and more effectively.

Q: Does Micro Dermal Abrasion Make Sun Spots Fade?

A: Microdermation machines 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 microdermabration treatments, smaller sun spots are entirely removed while larger ones fade significantly.
