Microdermabrasion Q & A

The Healthy Woman

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion, also known as the power peel, is a special crystallized and vacuum treatment that gently sands your skin to remove the thicker, uneven outer layer. The exfoliating treatment is a non-surgical, non-chemical approach to peeling back unwanted skin layers, creating a healthier, more youthful glow with seemingly ‘brand-new’ skin.

What can microdermabrasion do for skin?

Microdermabrasion offers a range of benefits for your skin, including:

  • Stimulating collagen production
  • Lessening fine lines
  • Improving dull skin
  • Reducing the appearance of brown spots
  • Reducing stretch marks
  • Treating acne and acne scars
  • Improving age spots  
  • Minimizing enlarged pores
  • Reducing sun damage


What happens during a microdermabrasion procedure?

Microdermabrasion can be done in various ways. The traditional approach involves a hand-held device that exfoliates your skin with tiny crystals. A vacuum simultaneously sprays the micro-crystals on the skin and removes them along with skin debris.  The vacuum then disposes them into a waste system

Both treatments last approximately 50 minutes.

What should I expect after microdermabrasion treatment?

Microdermabrasion has many significant benefits, like increased collagen and healthy skin regeneration, but this particular treatment has some minor drawbacks as well.

Your skin may also be more susceptible to sunburn afterward, so it’s essential to use sunscreen after treatment.

Microdermabrasion works best on mild to moderate skin damage and may take more than one treatment to get desired results.
