What is Microdermabrasion Treatment?
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a special applicator that sprays tiny crystals onto the skin to exfoliate and remove the outermost layer of skin. In doing so, microdermabrasion removes dry and dead skin cells while allowing a newer and fresher layer of skin to replace the old one.
While a microdermabrasion procedure may feel somewhat gritty, it should not be painful, as it only works on the skin’s surface layer. The procedure is fairly quick, typically lasting between 15 and 30 minutes for most patients. A microdermabrasion procedure consists of a facial cleansing to prep the skin for microdermabrasion, applying the microdermabrasion wand in targeted areas, followed by another cleansing to get rid of residual crystals. Your provider will then apply moisturizer and sunscreen to the skin as a final touch.
What is Microdermabrasion good for?
As a skin rejuvenation procedure, microdermabrasion is a great way to help your skin look brighter, younger, and fresher. With that in mind, it has proven to improve numerous cosmetic and skin issues and reduce various aging signs, such as the following:
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Age or dark spots
- Acne and acne scars
- Dull complexion
- Melasma, which is a condition that causes dark spots or patches to appear on the skin

How long do the effects of Microdermabrasion last?
While the length of time that the results from a microdermabrasion procedure will vary from patient to patient depending on your age and how well you respond to treatment, most people find that microdermabrasion results last for approximately one month.
What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion?
There are numerous benefits of microdermabrasion! The treatment itself is minimally invasive, quick and convenient, requires virtually no downtime, and is fairly reasonable in price. It is typically safe and effective for all skin types and is often referred to as the “lunchtime facial” because of how quick and easy it is. Moreover, the benefits that microdermabrasion has for your skin are also quite extensive, including the following:
- Brighter and more radiant skin tone, color, and complexion
- Diminished fine lines and wrinkles
- Fewer age spots
- Firmer and tighter skin
- Rejuvenated skin
- Shrunken pores
- Smoother and fresher-looking skin
How often should you do Microdermabrasion?
Since microdermabrasion results typically last for approximately one month at a time, it is common for patients to schedule microdermabrasion appointments once every four weeks. With that being said, it is important to be attentive to how well your skin responds to microdermabrasion before booking regular appointments. Furthermore, when you receive microdermabrasion treatment, your provider can give you a rough estimate for how often you should have microdermabrasion treatment done.
