Feel Your Best. Look Even Better.
A Microderm is a mechanical exfoliation where the top layer of skin is exfoliated by a special handpiece that lifts away dirt, oil, and any kind of debris from the skin’s surface. The skin is left feeling soft, smooth and firm.
Aging causes a gradual loss of collagen in the skin. Collagen is responsible for making skin appear tight, smooth and full – all signs generally associated with youth.
Since microdermabrasion treatments promote new collagen production, the skin takes on a smoother and younger appearance with each treatment.
How does Microdermabrasion Work?

Blackheads, Whiteheads & Acne Scars
What does Microdermabrasion feel like?
No, microdermabrasion should not hurt. It may feel a little uncomfortable during the treatment, and your skin will likely feel tight for a few hours after, but it should not be painful. It is one of the softest, non-invasive skin treatments available today and can achieve great results.
If you have very sensitive skin prone to bruising you may notice some bruising if the suction is set too high, but this will not last long.
Is a Microdermabrasion Treatment right for me?
Because it works on the superficial layers of the skin, it’s generally a very safe procedure.
Although microdermabrasion is safe, it isn’t appropriate for every person. Please consult your dermatologist or one of our licensed aesthetician if you have one of the following:
- Moderate to Severe Inflammatory Acne
- Cold Sore Breakout
- Rash, Wound or Other Skin Irritation
Your professional skin care representative may recomend that you stay out to the sun for 24-48 hours.
How Often Should I have a Microdermabrasion?
Just one treatment will leave your skin looking bright and feeling buttery soft.
But if you’re looking for improvement of a specific skin problem, you really need a series of treatments to see any positive effects. The results you get from microdermabrasion are cumulative.
Generally, six to 10 treatments are scheduled 7 to 14 days apart. The number and frequency of treatments varies depending on your skin’s needs and your skin care goals. The technician doing your procedure will let you know the best treatment schedule for your specific situation.
