Microdermabrasion Q & A

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a skin-rejuvenation procedure that gently buffs the top layer of your skin, the epidermis, using a stream of ultrafine crystals. Your specialist then suctions the dead skin cells away to reveal the healthy skin below.

Microdermabrasion can remove pigmented areas like sunspots while evening out your skin tone and texture. 

A microdermabrasion treatment can also stimulate new collagen and elastin production in the deeper layers of your skin. Over time, the new collagen lifts the recessed areas of skin, like lines, pits, and scars, to smooth and plump your skin while elastin boosts the skin’s elasticity.

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive outpatient treatment and is generally a painless procedure. There’s no downtime, so you can schedule this treatment anytime. 

What skin problems can microdermabrasion address?

Microdermabrasion can help with many skin issues, including:

  • Leathery skin
  • Rough skin texture
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Oil overproduction
  • Sunspots and other hyperpigmentation
  • Large or clogged pores
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Before your microdermabrasion treatment at Opulence Health and Wellness, you’ll have a chance to talk about your specific goals and concerns with your treatment specialist. This helps them personalize the treatment to give you the best results.

If you need special skin serums, such as skin brightening or moisturizing serums, your specialist can apply these after microdermabrasion. It’s the ideal time for serum delivery because your pores are open and better able to absorb topical serums than usual. 

How many microdermabrasion sessions do I need?

Microdermabrasion brings on rapid skin changes, so you’ll likely notice that your skin has subtle tone and texture improvements after just one session. Results improve with every session, and for optimum results, you may need multiple sessions. 

Your skin renews itself around every 30 days, so maintenance sessions can be scheduled around once a month to remove old skin and keep your fresh and youthful glow for the long term. 

Can I combine microdermabrasion with other treatments?

Yes, microdermabrasion can be an excellent way to perfect your skin in combination with injectables treatments like Botox® and fillers. Microdermabrasion is best scheduled before injectables, and your skin specialist will make recommendations on the best products and schedule for you.
