What is Microdermabrasion?

If you run your hands over your face and your skin feels like sandpaper rather than smooth and soft, the surface layer of your skin may be cluttered with dead skin cells that are making your complexion uneven and dull.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

Microdermabrasion treatments are performed in our Duluth, GA office after a consultation with Dr. Mang to determine what procedures will give you your best results. For your treatment, you will be asked to sit back in a comfortable chair as your skin is prepared and cleaned. The microdermabrasion handpiece will be passed over your skin as the tool both polishes your skin and vacuums the debris. While the treatment feels a little rough, it is not uncomfortable so you shouldn't need a local anesthetic or numbing cream. The microdermabrasion will be applied evenly to the needed areas with more care in delicate areas, like around the eyes. Once the process is over, your skin will be cleaned to get rid of any leftover debris before a moisturizer with sunscreen, chosen for your skin's needs, is massaged in.

What Can I Expect After Microdermabrasion?

Following your microdermabrasion treatment, you can get right back to your regular activities as long as you apply some form of sun protection since your skin will be sensitive and baby-like. The treated areas will feel smoother, and your tone will be brighter and all-around more even. To prolong the results of your treatment, Dr. Mang recommends getting a microdermabrasion treatment once every 4 – 6 weeks to keep up your results. Many Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery patients notice that after microdermabrasion treatments, the skin care products they use at home (particularly moisturizers) soak easily into the skin for more effective results.

Microdermabrasion FAQ

How much does microdermabrasion cost?
Your cost for microdermabrasion treatments can be discussed in your consultation with a skin care professional. After you talk about your wants and they assess your skin, your custom microdermabrasion treatment plan can be made. Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery has specials on skin treatments like microdermabrasion, as well as discounted packages if you buy several sessions.

Should I get microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel?
Based on your concerns and goals, a skin care technician will help you determine if microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel is the right procedure for you. In general, microdermabrasion clears away the top layer of damaged and dead skin cells to make your complexion look smoother and healthier. You can get these same results from a light chemical peel. A stronger chemical peel or dermabrasion can help if your issues are below the surface skin layers. Recovery time may also help you decide which treatment you prefer since microdermabrasion requires little to no downtime.

How often should I get microdermabrasion treatments?
To start, you may need anywhere from 5 – 12 microdermabrasion sessions every 2 – 4 weeks to rejuvenate your complexion. After that, you should schedule treatments every 4 – 8 weeks to maintain your healthy complexion. During your initial consultation, your technician will make a plan with suggestions for your goals that details how often you should schedule appointments for microdermabrasion.

How should I care for my skin after a microdermabrasion treatment?
After your microdermabrasion treatment, you are encouraged to avoid strenuous activity for at least 24 hours to give your skin time to rest. You should avoid direct exposure to UV rays (natural sunlight or tanning beds) and shield your complexion with sunscreen. To minimize swelling and redness after the microdermabrasion, we might recommend a special serum or cold compresses.

Can I combine microdermabrasion with other treatments?
You may consider coming microdermabrasion with another procedure since it is a surface skin treatment. You may combine microdermabrasion along with an injectable (BOTOX® or JUVÉDERM®) or as part of a facial. You should be open about all your aesthetic worries during your consultation — so your technician is able to develop a treatment plan that fits all your cosmetic goals.
