How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion removes the dull, lifeless layers of skin and stimulates cell turnover, bringing new, brighter skin cells to the surface. Many at-home treatments call themselves microdermabrasion, but they are vastly different from professional microdermabrasion. By removing the outermost layers of skin cells, microdermabrasion reveals skin that feels softer and looks rejuvenated. Repeated treatments can shrink pores, improve hyperpigmentation, and improve skin tone and texture.
How Often Should You Get Microdermabrasion?
To keep up with the rate of skin cell growth and turnover, we recommend microdermabrasion every four to six weeks. This makes sure you always have a fresh, new layer of healthy skin to present to the world. You will see continuous improvements with ongoing sessions, and many of the best benefits will only appear after several treatments.
What is Microdermabrasion Treatment Like?
Some people describe microdermabrasion as feeling like light scratching or being licked by a cat. Some people report that they find the treatment relaxing. You will not feel any discomfort and can relax during your session. The microdermabrasion wand glides over your skin, using a gentle but thorough exfoliating surface to buff away the old, lifeless skin cells. Treatment takes about 75 minutes to treat the entire face thoroughly.
