To give you more clarity about what microdermabrasion treatment is all about, we have provided some answers to commonly asked questions about this innovative and effective treatment below!
What is microdermabrasion treatment?
Microdermabrasion treatment is a non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure that uses a minimally abrasive instrument to exfoliate or gently scrape away the top layer of dead skin cells. In doing so, microdermabrasion treatment stimulates collagen growth in the treatment area and uncovers a fresher and healthier layer of skin that looks and feels smoother.
During a microdermabrasion procedure, the medical aesthetician will use a special applicator known as a crystal-emitting handpiece that sprays fine crystals onto the skin for exfoliation and resurfacing purposes. The procedure may cause mild discomfort but should not cause any pain. As the applicator moves across the skin, many compare the feeling to that of being licked by a cat’s tongue. Depending on where on the body microdermabrasion is performed (i.e., the face or neck), the treatment typically takes between 20 to 40 minutes to complete.
After the skin is exfoliated, a serum is applied to optimize the final results with boosted glow and rejuvenation. Your microdermabrasion provider will also recommend that you use a moisturizer for a few days after treatment to minimize dry and flaky skin and improve the final results of treatment.
What are the benefits of microdermabrasion treatment?

How many microdermabrasion treatments does it take to see results?
While you will notice improvements after only one treatment session, the results of microdermabrasion are cumulative. After one treatment session, your skin should look brighter and feel softer. However, human skin naturally regenerates every 30 days on average, so treatments should be repeated according to your microdermabrasion provider’s recommendations. Most people require around six to 12 treatments sessions at intervals of two to four weeks before they see a lasting and significant improvement.
How often do you get microdermabrasion done?
Since the treatment area will take a day or two to heal and collagen production will occur gradually after microdermabrasion, the general recommendation is to wait for at least one to two weeks before scheduling an additional appointment. With that in mind, microdermabrasion can occur anywhere between once a week to once every eight weeks, depending on your microdermabrasion provider’s recommendations. Your microdermabrasion provider will consider your skin type, tolerance, and the goals you have for microdermabrasion when they provide you with their recommendation.
