What are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?


If the people in your social circles care deeply about the condition of their skin, then you’ve probably heard more than your share of praise about the benefits of microdermabrasion. We imagine you’re here because you want to know how much of it is true. 

You’ve come to the right place. 

But first, let’s start with a brief explanation of microdermabrasion for those who may have landed here by way of a blind search for effective skincare solutions. (You’ve come to the right place, too.)

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a form of deep exfoliation by way of microcrystals propelled across the surface of the skin to remove dead skin cells and improve the texture of the skin. It also promotes the production of fresh collagen and new cells, which creates a youthful glow. Microdermabrasion treats a wide range of skin problems, including: 

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Enlarged pores

  • Active acne

  • Acne scars

  • Sun damage

  • Flaking skin

  • Dry skin

  • Age spots

  • Hyperpigmentation

Sure, you can find other treatment options for some of these skin issues, but microdermabrasion is the only one that can provide results plus all of the following benefits. 

Microdermabrasion is non-invasive

Microdermabrasion will not wound past the epidermis. It tackles flaws on the outermost layers of your skin, so there’s no surgery, no needles, knives, and no blood. But you still get smoother, more youthful-looking skin. 

Microdermabrasion is painless

During your microdermabrasion treatment, you may feel some slight stinging or a vibrating sensation in your skin, but the procedure doesn’t even call for anesthesia! Even the pinkness and mild swelling you may (or may not) experience afterward will typically last less than a day. 

Microdermabrasion is quick

What other procedure can you think of that addresses all of the abovementioned skin problems in less than an hour per treatment? We can’t think of any. Lunch break sesh, anyone? 

Microdermabrasion is for all skin types

Do you have aging skin, oily skin, scarred skin, or just skin looking for a boost prior to a special occasion?  Microdermabrasion treats so many different skin issues and blemishes that we’re hard-pressed to find a person who wouldn’t benefit from it.

Microdermabrasion gives your skincare products a boost!

By removing dead skin from the surface layer of your face, the microdermabrasion treatment will boost the impact of those expensive creams, serums, and moisturizers you use. Without all those dead cells in the way, your skincare products will be able to get straight to the layers where they make the most difference. 

Microdermabrasion will continue to improve your skin over time.

Even though you’ll notice a major difference in your skin after the first session, you’ll receive the best and most impactful results with multiple treatments. We recommend a minimum of 6. Ongoing microdermabrasion sessions will clean out your pores, stimulate the production of new skin cells, further reduce your scars, and keep your skin blemish-free. Maintenance treatments will also continue to decrease the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles. Be sure to always wear sunscreen – even when the sky is overcast.
