Microdermabrasion is a unique type of facial that uses a diamond tip and gentle suction to remove excess dead skin cells, creating a fresher and younger complexion. It treats a number of skin issues and it a truly wonderful skincare treatment. Here is everything you need to know about microdermabrasion before going in for your appointment!
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is essentially a treatment that exfoliated the outer layer of skin tissue. By removing the outer layer of dead skin, your skin texture and tone improve. This treatment uses a special diamond-encrusted wand that lightly suctions and removes dead skin that as built up on the surface. It’s a wonderful facial technique that provides beautiful results with no downtime!
What Conditions Does Microdermabrasion Treat?
Microderm can be used to treat a number of skin conditions. It can improve dull complexion and enlarged pores. It can also reduce the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and scars. It also addresses dry and oily skin!
How does Microdermabrasion Work?
Treatment sessions for Microderm are around 60 minutes long. Think of it as a facial and exfoliation in one. First, the Microderm wand is used, followed by any needed extractions. Then active serums are applied, followed by a massage and calming mask.
How Long Does Microdermabrasion Take to Work?
At AFYA we usually recommend a series of 6 Microderm treatments to see the best possible results. However, you can see results immediately after one treatment, with the full benefits appearing around a week after treatment. It’s recommended to perform treatments 2 to 3 weeks apart. Maintenance Microderm appointments can be made as well.
Does Microdermabrasion Have Side Effects?
The great thing about Microderm is that there is NO DOWNTIME! There are also very few side effects, although it can cause some redness right after. Due to having zero downtime this treatment can be done all year long. You can leave your appointment and carry on living your life!
