Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What Age Is Suitable To Perform Microdermabasion?

A: There is no official contraindication regarding age for micro dermal abrasion patients, but it would be best to wait until you are 14 before you have it. If you have it earlier, the hormonal changes and the fact that your skin hasn't yet fully formed all of its recovering systems may affect the final outcome of the treatment.

Q: Can You Apply Foundation After Micro Dermabrasion?

A: Some specialists recommend using mild make-up to cover the redness on your face while others say that any type of liquid or powder foundation or any other type of cover up is absolutely forbidden in the first 2-3 days after microderm abrasions The best thing to do is ask the doctor who performed the procedure whether you can use foundation or not immediately after the treatment.

Q: Can You Use Microderm Abrasion On Your Neck?

A: Home microdermabrastion creams can be used on your neck as long as it's especially formulated as a face macrodermabrasion product (unless otherwise stated). Using a body microderma system on your neck may be too harsh and result in irritation. Doctor-performed microbrasion is suitable for use on the neck.

Q: How Can Micro Derma Brasion Make Skin Texture Even Itself?

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

Q: Is Micro Dermabrasion Dangerous While Pregnant?

A: We recommend that you wait until you deliver your baby and finish the nursing period before microdermabration Your skin is more sensitive during pregnancy and nursing and microdermabration kits may cause irritation or severe scarring. This procedure is also not recommended for pregnant and nursing women because hormonal changes during this period may reduce the effectiveness of the procedure.

Q: How Can Microdermabasion Make Hyper Pigmentation Go Away?

A: Microdermabarasion machine is effective on hyper pigmentation. The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck. Several dermatologist-performed microderm abrasion sessions are required to even out skin tone and get rid of hyper pigmentation.

Q: Are There Risks Associated With Microabrasion?

A: Compared to other cosmetic procedures, cosmetic microderm abrasion involves few risks: if the machine is not properly handled or has not been properly sterilized, hyperpigmentation, skin injuries or infections may occur as a result; it is also possible to inhale micro crystals used during the procedure. Aluminum oxide crystals, however, cause no allergic or adverse reactions. Eye injury from stray micro crystals used to be a concern but these days plastic or rubber goggles makes it extremely unlikely.

Q: How Long Does It Take For Improvement After Micro Dermabrasion?

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 a personal microbrasion set.

Q: Microdermbrasion Is It Recommended After Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) Product?

A: You should not have micrdermabrasion if you've used a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) product in the last 14 days because the two exfoliating procedures combined are too aggressive and might affect your skin's ability to recover. This applies to do-it-yourself system and salon treatment.

Q: Can Microderma Work For Scarring?

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