Microdermabrasion Q & A

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive skincare treatment that addresses many of the most common skin concerns and improves its overall quality. 

During the procedure at Zen Skincare and Medspa, you sit comfortably as Holly uses an abrasive crystal-equipped device to sand away the top layer of your skin, revealing a healthy rejuvenated layer underneath it. 

Once the treatment is over, she applies a protective sunscreen and moisturizer to preserve your skin’s new glow. If you choose, you can combine microdermabrasion with a facial for enhanced results.

You enjoy healthy and younger-looking skin immediately following microdermabrasion. Your results are long-lasting if you protect your skin from the sun, and you can return for maintenance treatments to continue looking your best. 

How can microdermabrasion improve the look of my skin?

Microdermabrasion improves your skin’s overall tone and texture. Your skin looks smoother and shinier in general with fewer scars and blemishes. 

Microdermabrasion can reduce or eliminate the appearance of common skin imperfections including:

  • Sunspots
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Blackheads
  • Acne
  • Scars
  • Discoloration

Beyond treating your face, you can get microdermabrasion on other parts of your body to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. 

One of the unique perks of microdermabrasion is that the treatment is designed to be safe and effective for all skin types and colors. Whether you have a dull complexion or struggle with discolored patches, you can see an improvement after just one microdermabrasion session.

Is microdermabrasion painful?

When you first hear about the microdermabrasion process in detail, it sounds like it might be wildly uncomfortable. Most patients report that the procedure isn’t painful; in fact, it feels more like a cat’s rough tongue licking your skin rather than a cheese grater shaving your skin away.

If you become uncomfortable during the procedure, let Holly know. She can treat your skin with a lighter hand if it’s particularly sensitive.

What should I expect after my microdermabrasion session?

Microdermabrasion is a gentle treatment that doesn’t require extra time for recovery. In fact, you can get back to your daily routine immediately after your appointment with just a bit of skin redness that subsides within a few hours. 

Following microdermabrasion, you need to follow Holly’s instructions for aftercare to maximize your results. For the first day, you should avoid using medicated skin creams and cleansers as they may sting your skin. You should also protect your skin from the sun by using sunscreen whenever you leave the house.
