Micro Dermabrasion Explained
Your skin is exposed to environmental elements every day. Over the years, the sun’s rays, pollution, and other damaging agents can take a toll on your skin. Microdermabrasion treatment can help reduce or eliminate the wrinkles and fine lines, “crow’s feet,” age spots, light acne scars, and undesired pigmentation that may appear on the skin over time.
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses a spray of microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. Microdermabrasion also encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance. Microdermabrasion is much gentler than Dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is a more intensive procedure used to treat deeper facial lines, extreme sun damage, and scars.
During a microdermabrasion treatment, one of our practitioners will direct a stream of tiny (“micro”) aluminium oxide crystals through a hand piece that is placed against the skin. These Dermabrasion crystals exfoliate the skin, and the mild suction created by the microdermabrasion system removes the skin debris and crystals.
Microdermabrasion helps produce thicker, healthier skin layers; multiple treatments are vital because they encourage the production of a new layer of skin cells that contains higher levels of collagen and elastin. Both of these components are essential for vibrant, healthy skin, and they will further improve your complexion and the overall appearance of your skin.
Approximately five to twelve treatments spaced two to three weeks apart are usually necessary to reap full microdermabrasion benefits. Convenient and virtually painless, the microdermabrasion procedure takes only 30 to 60 minutes and is commonly referred to as the “lunch hour facial.”
Is the Procedure Painful?
The microdermabrasion procedure exfoliates dead cells from the skin’s surface. While it is not painful, the treatment can cause a slight warming sensation as the abrasive microdermabrasion crystals gently slough away old and damaged layers of skin. Some patients have likened the experience to having a facial massage. After a microdermabrasion treatment, the newly revealed layer of skin is usually more sensitive and requires extra protection from the sun. You should not feel uncomfortable, but you should be particularly careful about wearing sunscreens. Applying moisturizing creams to hydrate and calm the skin can also prevent any potential irritation. A good aesthetician, registered nurse, or dermatologist will be able to suggest a facial cream or lotion that is best suited for your skin type.

Questions and Answers
Although microdermabrasion is a very safe procedure, it is not the best option for everyone. Certain skin types and conditions can be negatively affected by the treatment. For some patients, microdermabrasion can even result in significant scarring. Patients with severe rosacea, active acne, eczema, or dermatitis are not good candidates for microdermabrasion.
A microdermabrasion treatment typically lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. Patients should see improvements in their complexion after a single treatment, but lasting results are only achieved through a series of sessions performed over the course of several weeks.
No. Because the procedure uses tiny aluminium oxide (diamond) crystals to gently exfoliate the skin, microdermabrasion should not be painful or leave the patient with any lingering discomfort. However, microdermabrasion does cause a mild warming or tingling sensation that most patients describe in positive terms.
The results of microdermabrasion can be seen almost immediately. Just one micro Dermabrasion session can improve the skin’s colour, tone, and health. After treatment, the face should have a fresh appearance and a smooth, soft texture. However, the micro Dermabrasion system is most effective when a patient receives multiple treatments at intervals of two to three weeks.
Yes. One of the important benefits of microdermabrasion is its safety. It is a non-invasive procedure with minimal risks. At Deluxe Skin we have experienced practitioners, microdermabrasion can significantly enhance the complexion without affecting the deeper layers of the skin.
Microdermabrasion can improve minor acne scars, but it is not intended to completely eliminate deeper scars or keloids caused by severe acne. Treatment is available to improve these types of scarring, and one of the best methods is the acne chemical peel.
Normal side effects associated with microdermabrasion are increased skin sensitivity and risk of sunburn. However, these side effects are usually mild and brief. Micro Dermabrasion risks are minimal, but problems such as infection can occur if the treatment is not properly performed.
Yes. Micro Dermabrasion is often referred to as the “lunch hour facial” because the procedure is so brief and the side effects are hardly noticeable. After a microdermabrasion treatment, your skin should look and feel refreshed, and be only slightly flushed.
