Microdermabrasion – How Often Should You Get It Done?

Microdermabrasion – How Often Should You Get It Done

Your skin regenerates around every 30 days. Skin treatments and improvement from those treatments will need to be refreshed to maintain the effects. Microdermabrasion is an extraordinary way to get rid of dead skin cells in a gentle manner. Because of the frequency of skin cell regeneration, microdermabrasion from Art of Facial Rejuvenation needs to be performed at frequent intervals in order for additional improvement to be effective.

How Often Should I Get Treatment?

Depending on your specific tolerance levels, you can safely undergo microdermabrasion as frequently as every three weeks or as late as once every two months. Your specific frequency will mainly depend on what results you seek and how well your skin tolerates the treatment. It is recommended a minimum of four treatments in order to see the best results. Typically, patients will undergo a once a week treatment for three weeks followed by a once a month maintenance session to maintain their results.

How does it Work?

Microdermabrasion uses a mixture of inert sodium bicarbonate, magnesium oxide, and aluminum oxide crystals to abrade your skin. These crystals are then sucked away along with dead skin cells and debris.

What does Microdermabrasion do?

The vacuum our skincare specialist uses during the microdermabrasion sessions fulfills a substantial role. It helps to separate and raise small sections of skin for treatment while also encouraging blood circulation. This treatment will also significantly improve the following: fine lines, large pores, clogged pores and blackheads.

What Should I Expect?

Following a session, your skin will be silkier, more satiny and will also feel rejuvenated. Prior to starting, our specialist will cover your eyes for protection. Your skin will then be cleansed to remove makeup, oil, and other debris from the surface. The skin will then be gently stretched to allow for an effective microdermabrasion treatment.

The skin may exhibit a mild amount of pinkness following treatment, but it will disappear within a few hours. Using a moisturizer as well as sunscreen is recommended following treatment. In some cases, mild discomfort similar to a light sunburn may last for several days.

Are There Side Effects?

The procedure is generally safe and there is little to no risk of negative side effects. When microdermabrasion is performed by a qualified professional, the only temporary side effects that may occur are:

  • Photosensitivity
  • Light Bruising
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
  • Tightness of skin in the treatment area
  • Redness
  • Spot Bleeding
  • Cold Sores around the lips

Is Microdermabrasion Suitable For Everyone?

People who suffer from mild acne, hyperpigmentation, dull skin, light acne scars and pick marks will find the treatment useful. It’s also a viable option for those who have mild skin problems but no time to seek more in-depth treatments. Anyone over the age of 12 can receive microdermabrasion treatments.
