Microdermabrasion Q & A

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive treatment that uses a special device to gently exfoliate your skin. Unlike the skin exfoliators you have at home, the microdermabrasion conducted by Dr. Chou and her medical aestheticians has the ability to reach deeper layers of your skin to reveal healthier, younger, fresher skin. Microdermabrasion is a safe cosmetic treatment that’s effective for all skin types.

What types of skin issues can microdermabrasion help?

Dr. Chou uses microdermabrasion to help improve the look of a number of skin imperfections. Some of the most common include:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Altered skin texture
  • Dullness

Dr. Chou can also use microdermabrasion as a method to improve the look of melasma, which is a skin condition that causes large brown or gray-brown patchy spots on your face that often occur when you’ve spent too much time in the sun.

What can I expect during microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a gentle exfoliating treatment that doesn’t cause any discomfort. You may feel a sanding sensation as the microdermabrasion tool removes the dull top layer of your skin. Treatment time varies, but it can take up to an hour for a full face treatment. Dr. Chou reviews what to expect before you get started so you know how best to prepare.

There’s no downtime following microdermabrasion, but your skin may be red and a little swollen following treatment. These side effects go away in two days or less.

Dr. Chou provides you with instructions on how to care for your skin after microdermabrasion to support recovery and keep your skin protected. This may include special moisturizers and sunscreen.

How many treatments do I need?

Dr. Chou determines the number of microdermabrasion treatments you need based on your skin concerns and ultimate goals. You may need anywhere from five to 16 treatments to get the best results. How often you get your treatments depends on how quickly your skin recovers, which can range from one to four weeks.

After your series of microdermabrasion treatments, your skin may be lighter, smoother, and more radiant.
