A popular machine-aided skin exfoliation treatment is microdermabrasion. When compared to other alternative skin resurfacing methods, its benefits include low risk, quick recovery, and fewer side effects. They have favorably compared to dermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser resurfacing. It is most effective at treating fine lines, sunspots, and acne damage because microdermabrasion operates only on the surface layers of the skin. Microdermabrasion results are subtle, rather than dramatic, so that is something to keep in mind. Today, we at Open Door Med Spa would like to address microdermabrasion facial.

What Skin Improvements Does Microdermabrasion Achieve?

Generally, microdermabrasion treats the following areas:
– Wrinkles
– Uneven Skin Tone
– Stretch Marks
– Scarring
– Melasma
– Hyperpigmentation
– Fine Lines
– Age Spots
Including areas of irregular skin like hands, feet, and ears, there is a full-body microdermabrasion treatment which can address any of the above as well.

How Long after Microdermabrasion Will I See Results?

You will need to repeat microdermabrasion every 2-4 weeks to see continual improvement since your skin regenerates every 30 days. You will need 6 to 12 treatments to achieve significant results, usually.

How Many Times Can You Do Microdermabrasion?

As often as every week, or as infrequently as every eight weeks, you can schedule microdermabrasion facial sessions. In addition to the level of improvement you want to achieve, the best interval for you will depend on your skin’s sensitivity and tolerance. Generally, switch to a monthly treatment schedule for maintenance purposes after you begin with treatments every week for the first three weeks.

Does Microdermabrasion Remove Hair?

It does not remove any hair, including peach fuzz, though microdermabrasion does remove dead skin cells. Dermablading is something you might consider if you are looking for an exfoliation treatment that can remove hair.

Which is Best? Microdermabrasion or Chemical Peel?

As a method of exfoliating the skin, people often compare microdermabrasion to chemical peel. These two treatments are quite different in some very important ways and we will look closer at how. To exfoliate your skin and help reduce the appearance of skin imperfections, both chemical peels and microdermabrasion are efficient. Superficial skin imperfections like fine lines and wrinkles can be effectively treated with microdermabrasion, and with serious skin issues like deep wrinkles or scars, the chemical peels tend to work better. Each procedure requires about half an hour. Though there are versions available over the counter, they are far less effective than spa or doctor office quality.

Available in at least mild, medium, and deep strengths, chemical peels also come in a couple of other intensities as well. Generally, you will need an anesthetic with deep chemical peels since they are painful. They carry significant side effects like swelling, burning, and color changes to the skin and chemical peels frequently need about three months of recovery time after application. By contrast, microdermabrasion does not vary in strength and does not involve any pain. Depending on how sensitive your skin is, recovery is quick, taking only a few days. The side effects of microdermabrasion are mild and may include redness and stinging sensation on your skin.
