Microdermabrasion by Dr. Michele Taylor

Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation procedure commonly used to diminish wrinkles and scars, giving you smoother skin and a clearer complexion.

Microdermabrasion also provides other benefits too, so it’s worth considering if you’re looking for non-invasive ways to improve your appearance.

More About Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive treatment that gently removes the top layer of dead and damaged skin cells. This treatment can address several skin issues, such as:

  • Pigment and discoloration
  • Sun damage
  • Dull and dry skin
  • Mild acne
  • Fine lines
  • Age spots

The treatment is safe for most skin types and it takes less than an hour to complete. It should be performed by an experienced and licensed aesthetician to ensure safe and optimal results.

Preparing for Microdermabrasion

To ensure that your skin is prepped for the treatment, it’s best to:

  • Refrain from Retin-A or any exfoliators 3 days before your scheduled treatment.
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure or any tanning creams or sprays a week before the procedure.
  • In case you just had injectables, such as fillers and neurotoxins, wait 2 – 3 weeks before getting microdermabrasion.
  • Don’t wax the treatment area a few days prior.

During the treatment, your provider will cleanse and steam your face to open up the pores. Next is the exfoliating process where you’ll feel the device moving counterclockwise against your skin.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Microdermabrasion?

Have rosacea
Are prone to getting broken blood vessels on their skin
Are struggling with active cystic acne
Have recently had a facial laser treatment

Types of Microdermabrasion

There are 2 types of microdermabrasion and both of them usually take 20 minutes if you’ll only be targeting the face, but can take up to an hour if you include the neck and chest:

Crystal Microdermabrasion

It uses fine crystals made of aluminum oxide, which are sprayed over the skin. These crystals, together with the dead skin cells, are vacuumed into the receptacle in the microdermabrasion device.

You’ll be given goggles to protect your eyes during the procedure.

Diamond Microdermabrasion

This approach uses a wand with a diamond-encrusted tip to exfoliate and resurface the skin with each pass. The particles are then vacuumed away using the microdermabrasion device.

Microdermabrasion Aftercare

After the treatment, your skin will likely feel tight and dry, but these side effects should subside over the next few days. You can use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer to help the skin recover faster.

Your skin will also be more sensitive to sun exposure, so it’s essential to apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or more.

It’s also best to avoid anything that can make you perspire excessively for 24 hours, such as:

  • Hot showers
  • Sauna
  • Steam rooms
  • Vigorous exercise

After 48 hours, you can go back to your regular skincare routine, but steer clear of products with the following active ingredients for at least a week to avoid irritating the treated skin:

  • Salicylic acid
  • AHA/BHA acids
  • Retinols
  • Vitamin C
  • Benzoyl peroxide
