Frequently Asked Questions

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

A: Micro derma brasion 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: Microdermbrasion Is It Recommended On Sun Damaged Skin?

A: Micro abrasion systems 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 micro derm abrasion treatments, the skin cells damaged by the sun are entirely removed and new, healthy skin cells take their place.

Q: Does Micro Dermal Abrasion Help If You Have Black Skin?

A: Over The Counter microdermasion set 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 doctor-performed micro dermabrasion helps the skin renew itself quicker and more effectively.

Q: Can I Use Microdermal Abrasion With Accutane (Isotretinoin)?

A: Microdermabra 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 microabrasion while on Accutane may cause permanent scarring. This applies to OTC systems and clinic treatment.

Q: Does Microderma Help Your Skin?

A: By resurfacing the top layer of the skin, over the counter microderm abrasian does make a difference. After a full treatment of 6-12 sessions, most people notice significant improvement in skin tone and texture. The face looks younger, feels smoother, and has fewer superficial scars, fine wrinkles, enlarged or clogged pores. More severe skin imperfections require more invasive procedures like laser or chemical peeling. Personal microderm abrasion is also not as effective as doctor-performed microdermasion.

Q: Is Micro Dermabrasion Recommended On Uneven Skin Tone?

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

Q: What Qualifications Are Required For Microderm?

A: Microderm devices can only be operated by people with specific theoretical and practical training. Since this procedure is still relatively new, regulations regarding microderm qualification vary from state to state. Generally speaking, for a person to perform professional in-office microdermabrasion. one needs to conclude a supervised 14 to 30 hour training and pass a practical exam with the institution offering the course. This institution can be a large spa, a vocational school, a dermatology clinic, a beauty academy or a device manufacturer.

Q: Who Is Microdermabration Suitable For?

A: A suitable candidate for microdermabrasian is anyone over 14 who wants to get rid of superficial acne scars, blotchy skin, large pores, age or sun spots, fine wrinkles or uneven skin tone and texture. All skin types and colors can be treated with microdermabasion. But if you are pregnant, nursing or suffering from a chronic skin disease, or have been on Accutane or had laser surgery recently, consult with a specialist before having this treatment.

Q: Does Microbrasion Make The Skin Look Better?

A: Better-looking skin needs elasticity and density, both achievable through skin cell renewal. Microdermabrasia 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 micro dermabration machine sucks up dirt and hardened oil to reveal an even skin texture and tone.

Q: Can You Use Microdermabasion For Acne Scars?

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