Microdermabrasion Q & A

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a treatment for your skin’s surface to encourage faster cell renewal and turnover. During the procedure at Aesthetic Lab, your provider uses an abrasive instrument to exfoliate the skin, which removes dead or dying cells from the surface and the buildup of debris. 

Unlike comparable procedures for your skin, microdermabrasion doesn’t require any anesthesia or downtime. Upon completing the treatment, your provider applies a nourishing moisturizer and sunscreen to protect your skin from additional damage while it’s still sensitive. 

Microdermabrasion treats or minimizes a multitude of common skin features that appear on the surface, primarily due to aging and sun damage. As you get older, cell turnover slows down, resulting in an increasing number of age-related features from the buildup of dead cells. 

What are the results of microdermabrasion?

You can use microdermabrasion on the face or other areas, but the face is the most common area to target. This is because your face gets more sun exposure than most other parts of your body and tends to age the fastest in terms of appearance.

Your microdermabrasion procedure removes or minimizes:

  • Scars
  • Age spots
  • Blackheads
  • Stretch marks
  • Large pores
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Dull skin
  • Acne
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Once your skin recovers from microdermabrasion, it displays a luminous glow and is smoother in texture than before. 

How should I care for my skin after microdermabrasion?

Aftercare for microdermabrasion is essential for minimal irritation and lasting results. Your provider at Aesthetic Lab gives you aftercare instructions to follow starting as soon as you leave the office. While you can safely return to most of your everyday activities, you should be sure to:

  • Keep your skin hydrated
  • Use gentle skin care products
  • Avoid topical acne medications
  • Use plenty of sunscreen

If you’re happy with the way your skin looks and feels after microdermabrasion, you may decide to book regular treatments with your provider at Aesthetic Lab. They may suggest you get an initial series of sessions followed by maintenance treatments in the future.
