Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular services we offer to the people of the La Plata area at Rejuvenation Medi-Spa. However, there are still many people who are unfamiliar with the term. Here are some frequently asked questions (and answers) about microdermabrasion, that can hopefully clear things up.

Microdermabrasion FAQs

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion, in a nutshell, is a non-surgical way of exfoliating your skin in order to maintain its youthful and wrinkle-free look — without compromising its health. Your skin, even with the regular use of skin care products, has a tiny layer of dead skin cells. When you get a microdermabrasion treatment, this thin layer is professionally removed. It is a non-invasive treatment that leaves your skin happy and healthy.

What Can Microdermabrasion Do For My Skin?

Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments available right now. One treatment can exfoliate your skin, eliminate light aging spots, and reduce the size of your pores. It can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles, minimize sun damage, and even out your skin tone. Talk about a miracle treatment!

How Often Should I Get a Treatment?

Unfortunately, the effects of microdermabrasion aren’t permanent; the thin skin layer that is removed will inevitably regenerate, and this is a process that takes about 30 days. If you want to continually enjoy the effects of microdermabrasion, it’s important to schedule an appointment every two to four weeks.

How Long Does a Microdermabrasion Appointment Last?

A single appointment usually lasts 20 to 30 minutes. This means that you can walk in, experience the wonderful effects of microdermabrasion, walk out, and get back to your business in less than an hour! Yes, this is something you can do on your lunch break if you wanted; it’s no wonder it’s one of our most popular services!

Can Microdermabrasion Treat My Acne Scarring?

Microdermabrasion is primarily focused on removing and treating the superficial layer of your skin. So, lighter superficial scarring can, in fact, be treated, but deeper scars are going to require a more thorough procedure that’s more invasive in nature. This isn’t the de-facto best treatment for acne scarring, but it certainly helps more than it hurts.

Does it Hurt?

Microdermabrasion is painless, so you won’t have to worry about that. That’s not to say you don’t feel anything though — microdermabrasion utilizes tiny micro crystals to do its work, which may cause some itchiness or stinginess, but it’s not long before your skin gets used to the sensation. At Rejuvenation Medi-Spa, we ensure that microdermabrasion treatments are as leisurely and relaxing as possible — could we really call ourselves a spa if we didn’t?
