Microdermabrasion is a popular spa treatment where your skin is exfoliated. It is non-surgical, non-chemical and non-invasive. In addition, it is pain-free. If you have never had microdermabrasion done and are thinking about getting this procedure done, you probably have a few questions. We have combined and answered frequently asked questions below.
What are the benefits to microdermabrasion?
The benefits of microdermabrasion are endless. It stimulates collagen production in the skin which helps smooth the skin and prevent aging. This treatment will also remove acne scars, stretch marks and blackheads, as well as minimize pores. If you have sun damage, microdermabrasion can reduce the appearance of dark spots. This procedure helps brighten skin complexion and tone the skin. Microdermabrasion has been proven to be an effective treatment for melasma and hyperpigmentation. Overall, microdermabrasion assists in having healthy skin.
How many microdermabrasion treatments are needed?
How often an individual should get microdermabrasion depends on their skin goals. One session is often not enough for instant results. This treatment can be done once a week. Many experts recommend getting it done three to six times. Six times is agreed by most experts to be a good standard for best results. Depending on your skin health, you may require more treatments. For example, having scarring or pigmentation would need more treatments.
What should I put on my face after microdermabrasion?
It is crucial to take care of your skin post microdermabrasion to speed up recovery and achieve maximum results. Wash your face immediately after to remove any leftover crystals. Moving forward, use a gentle cleanser twice a day. Experts recommend using a light moisturizer. Although it is important to keep your skin moisturized, you do not want to over-moisturize. After microdermabrasion, use an SPF preferably 30+. For the first 48 hours, stay away from direct sun contact. For the following seven days after the procedure, it is advised to avoid too much sun exposure. After microdermabrasion, refrain from using makeup that same day to allow your skin to regenerate properly. For best results wait 2 to 3 days before applying foundation and powder. You also want to steer clear from any harsh skin products for a week such as tanning products, waxing products and more.
What happens to skin after microdermabrasion?
There is no downtime post-treatment. After microdermabrasion, you may feel your skin feeling tight. Your skin might be slightly dry as well, which is why moisturizing is recommended. Many people have concerns over redness after this procedure. Your face will likely be slightly red for a couple of hours. This is because of the stimulation of blood flow. If redness is a concern, you can apply ice to the face. You will see some improvement after the first treatment.
