Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What To Do After Having Micro Derma Abrasion?

A: First, clean your face immediately with a wet microdermabasion cloth and hydrating toner to remove micro crystals residue and dead skin cells. Once the skin has dried completely, apply a rich moisturizer across the treated area. Continue to apply the moisturizer for 4-6 days to protect your face from excessive exfoliation. Don't leave the house without applying a generous amount of sunscreen. If you want to speed up the recovery process, you can use copper based lotions (to heal the skin), Vitamin A, C and E formulas (to increase skin elasticity) and thermal water absorbing cloths (to calm down any swellings or itchiness).

Q: Can I Have Microderma On The Neck?

A: OTC microdermabration tools can be used on your neck as long as it's especially formulated as a facial micoderm abrasion cream (unless otherwise stated). Using a body microderma abrasion set on your neck may be too harsh and result in irritation. Specialist microderm is suitable for use on the neck.

Q: Is Micro Derm Abrasion Good For Blotchy Skin?

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

Q: What Are The Best Microdermbrasion?

A: The only one who can give you the right answer on this one is your doctor. He or she can tell you whether home kits or professional (crystal or diamond microbrasion ) treatment is best.

Q: Is Micro Derm Abrasion Good For Large Pores?

A: Microdermabrastion machine stimulates collagen growth which is why it works on large pores. Collagen production is stimulated through skin exfoliation. Furthermore, the vacuum function of most microbrasion tools sucks out hardened oil, dust and other dirt which may clog your pores. This way, the oil in the glands can again reach the surface of your skin and your pores can return to their natural shape and size.

Q: Is Micro Derma Abrasion Good For Tattoo Removal?

A: Micro derm abrasion 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: Is Microdermabration Good If You Have African American Skin?

A: Home microderm abrasian product is appropriate for all skin colors (including African American 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 spa micro derma abrasion helps the skin renew itself quicker and more effectively.

Q: How Can Microderma Help With Rosacea?

A: Rosacea is one of the main contraindications of microdermabrasion, because the exfoliation process worsens rosacea symptoms (redness, itchiness, flaking). Do-it-yourself microderm abrasion kits are not recommended either (even though they are milder).

Q: Microdermabasion Is It Suitable For You?

A: The right candidate for microdermabrastion 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 microdermbrasion. 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: How Much Does A Microderm Session Cost?

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