Microdermabrasion Facial FAQs
A microdermabrasion facial is a non-invasive – but highly effective – treatment that exfoliates your facial skin, leaving your complexion smoother, brighter, and more even in color.

What are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion Facials?
Micro-dermabrasion facials reduce the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines, and can also help minimize acne scars, as well as reduce pores. Additionally, microdermabrasion stimulates the face’s production of collagen, which firms and plumps the skin and improves skin’s elasticity.
Can I Do Microdermabrasion Facials at Home?
Over the counter “drug store” treatments are not as strong – and do not go as deep – as professional microdermabrasion facials that are performed in a medical spa.
The so-called “dermabrasion kits” that you use at home are sold at a much weaker strength to be used by the general public. These are considerably more superficial than the microdermabrasion treatments performed by a professional. Only licensed aestheticians can buy the stronger products used in medical spas.
Additionally, medical spas use high-tech, state-of-the-art equipment that provide high powered “blasting” crystals, diamond tipped wands, and strong suction. This equipment removes dead skin, pulls out impurities deep within the pores, and rejuvenates living skin in a way that you simply cannot do at home without professional equipment.
How Do Microdermabrasion Facials Work?
Microdermabrasion Facials use a type of “sandblaster” that sprays microscopic aluminum oxide crystals across the facial area – which gently abrades the outer layer of skin.
A diamond tipped wand is then typically used to accurately target small areas close to the eyes and mouth.
Finally deep – but comfortable – suctioning is used to remove the dead skin and impurities from the surface and from within the pores.
How Many Microdermabrasion Facial Treatments do I Need?
Clients are typically amazed at the results they see after their very first microdermabrasion facial. Removing those dead layers of skin, even once, makes a huge difference in fine lines, wrinkles, scars, pock marks and discolorations.
The total number of microdermabrasion facials you will need to look your best depends will depend upon a number of factors unique to you.
- Your age: younger skin generally needs fewer treatments than older skin
- Your skin type: whether your skin is oily or dry can affect the number of facials you will need.
- Special “issues” such as acne or wrinkles: deeper lines or pock marks require more treatments than faint lines.
