Top Four Questions About Microdermabrasion Answered

Microdermabrasion is a popular procedure that repairs facial skin from minor damage, and corrects the signs of aging, regenerating, and rejuvenating the skin. Here are a few common questions about microdermabrasion, answered!

Suction pulls the skin back during exfoliation and allows for maximum access to the skin’s surface. While microdermabrasion is affordable and convenient at home, it is best to visit a doctor if you want the highest quality possible procedure.

  1. How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
    During microdermabrasion, a tool is used to spray tiny crystals across the face. This powerful exfoliation is combined with suction in order to smooth, refine, and improve the appearance of skin. This benefits different types of skin issues. It can be used to clear blocked pores and remove blackheads, and reduce breakouts.For aging skin, microdermabrasion will make the skin look fresh and youthful, and encourage it to grow back healthier and firmer than before.
  2. Is Microdermabrasion a Surgery?
    Unlike dermabrasion, microdermabrasion is not considered a surgery. Dermabrasion is painful, and removes most of the epidermis with a laser or with a sanding tool. As a result, skin is red and raw, even bloody for at least a week. Full healing from dermabrasion can take months. On the other hand, microdermabrasion is considered a procedure rather than a surgery. There is no healing time after microdermabrasion—you can leave the office glowing!
  3. Can I Perform Microdermabrasion Myself?
    There are many home microdermabrasion kits available. While they are a great option for those on a budget, they are often just exfoliating brushes that remove dead surface skin. While some at-home microdermabrasion kits work well, only a doctor can offer exfoliation combined with suction.
  4. Who Should Not Use Microdermabrasion?
    There are certain skin problems that microdermabrasion can make worse. If you have any of the following skin conditions, microdermabrasion may not be right for you.
    • Rosacea
    • Acne
    • Psoriasis
    • Facial Herpes
    • Open Sores
    • Hyperpigmentation


Fortunately there are many options for facial rejuvenation. If microdermabrasion is not right for you, your doctor can help you find an alternative.
