Microdermabrasion Q & A

by Morris Westfried, MD

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation procedure that uses a special device to gently bombard the skin surface with tiny particles of aluminum oxide, a special abrading mineral that helps remove dry, damaged, dull skin to reveal the smoother, softer layers underneath. Microdermabrasion can be an ideal choice for patients interested in helping skin look fresher and smoother, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars. Plus, microdermabrasion helps stimulate the natural production of collagen, an essential component of healthy skin, so skin looks and feels firmer and more resilient over time.

What benefits does microdermabrasion offer?

Microdermabrasion helps women and men enjoy better-looking skin by removing the dull upper layers and reducing the appearance of many types of damage, including sun damage and textual and tonal variations, without the need for harsh chemicals or deep abrasion. As a result, microdermabrasion lets you enjoy softer, smoother skin without the downtime associated with harsher treatments.

What happens during treatment?

Once your skin has been carefully cleansed, a special handheld device is gently moved across the skin, emitting aluminum oxide crystals in targeted areas for optimal results. As each area is treated, the device's special vacuum tip removes spent crystals and dead, dull skin to reveal smoother skin beneath. After treatment is complete, you'll receive instructions on how to care for your skin and protect it so your results are prolonged. Most treatments take under an hour to perform from start to finish.

Is microdermabrasion a good choice for all patients?

Although microdermabrasion is a great option for most skin types, it may not be ideal if you have a chronic and active skin condition like eczema or psoriasis. During your consultation appointment, your skin will be evaluated and you'll learn about all the options that are available to help keep your skin looking its best.
