MICRODERMABRASION

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure in which the stratum corneum (dead outermost surface of the skin) is partially or completely removed by light abrasion, to remove sun-damaged skin and to lessen pores and dark spots on the skin. Microdermabrasion can also be effective in the treatment of acne. The procedure is not painful and requires no anesthetic.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the risks associated with Microdermabrasion?

There are not many risks associated with Microdermabrasion if you are a healthy adult, but enough to mention for those of you with skin or medical conditions. If the medical grade machines are used at high power it carries potential risks of hyperpigmentation, perforation, bleeding, and infection. Infection can also be a risk if the machines are not sterile. Many components of these machines are meant to be sterilized, autoclaved or changed out with a new disposable piece. Any and all pieces that come into contact with your skin should be able to be sterilized or changed out. Furthermore, there could be possible harm from the inhalation of the aluminum in the Al2O3 crystals, also known as Corundum, but this is rare.

How long does it take to see results?

That depends on your skin and the Microdermabrasion machine used by your doctor. Some patients reported changes after the first treatment. Your skin will look cleaner and healthier after a few Microdermabrasions, but major changes (like reduction of wrinkles and scars) become visible after five treatments.
