Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do You Need A Series Of Micro Dermal Abrasion Sessions For Full Effect?

A: Best results are obtained after 6 to 12 professional sessions (depending on your expectations and severity of the skin imperfections), respectively one month of use for one of the over the counter micro derma abrasion kit.

Having microdermal abrasions while on Accutane may cause permanent scarring. This applies to do-it-yourself sets and professional treatment.

Q: Does Micro Derma Brasion Make Acne Scarring Go Away?

Deeper chemical peels can be more effective than.
