Microdermabrasion is not a painful process. It may feel a bit uncomfortable, so the surface of your skin is being gently “sandblasted”.
There is no required downtime with this procedure as it is noninvasive and nonsurgical. You may return to your normal activities immediately. Exercise is recommended to resume the following day as perspiration can irritate the skin during the first several hours after the procedure.
Depending on the area of skin being treated, treatment can vary from 15-45 minutes.
It is not recommended for patients with a history of cold sores, rosacea or sunburn to have the treatment. You should remain cautious as other skin problems could occur. You consult your doctor before having any treatment.
Before having a microdermabrasion treatment you should stop all prescription skin creams several days before. You may begin use of these creams several days after treatment. Exfoliating and waxing should not take place until several days after treatment as well. If any cold sores or open cuts occur, please notify your doctor. Prior to the treatment, all women should remove all makeup. A light wash of makeup is okay after treatment. All men, prior to treatment, should shave several hours before, ensuring that it’s not directly before. Everyone should avoid direct exposure to the sun for a week after treatment and sunscreen should be used.
The number of treatments usually depends on each individual’s needs. Many patients require 6 to 12 treatments. These are done 2-3 weeks apart. After the initial round of treatments, patients may be re-treated every 2-3 months.
Many patients prefer to combine this treatment with chemical peels. It is okay to do so safely.
