Microdermabrasion Q & A

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive treatment that exfoliates the top layer of your skin. The providers use a handheld device that blasts tiny crystals onto your skin to do the exfoliation, while simultaneously suctioning the resulting dead skin cells back into the device along with the crystals.  

How can microdermabrasion improve my skin?

By eliminating the thick top layer of your skin, microdermabrasion can help your skin look younger and brighter. Specifically, it helps:

  • Reduce acne scars
  • Eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
  • Fade age spots or brown spots
  • Shrink pores
  • Improve dull complexion
  • Even out skin tone

Additionally, microdermabrasion promotes collagen production, which makes your skin look firmer, smoother and younger.  

Is microdermabrasion a good option for me?

Most women with minor skin imperfections can benefit from microdermabrasion treatments. However, those with certain conditions or taking certain medications should speak with the providers at The Spa on Par 3 first. These include:

  • If you have mole or spot on your skin that is growing or changing shape
  • If you’re taking or have taken certain acne medications
  • If you scar easily

If you have deep wrinkles, acne scars, or saggy or loose skin, they can recommend additional treatments to improve your appearance.

What can I expect during a microdermabrasion treatment?

A microdermabrasion treatment takes about 30-40 minutes for your face and additional time if you choose to have your neck and décolletage done as well. While you relax in a reclining chair, they gently pass a wand over your face. You may feel mild scratching or stinging. After your treatment, your skin may be slightly red or pink, like a windburn. In most cases, you need several treatments to get your desired results. Moisturizer is applied after treatment.

They provide aftercare instructions, which include staying out the sun and applying sunscreen regularly.

How many treatments will I need?

Most people need several treatments, spaced out a few weeks at a time. The number of treatments will depend on your skin and desired results. Monthly maintenance treatments after your initial round of treatments are recommended to maintain your youthful-looking, smooth skin.
