Microdermabrasion Q & A

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. Microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of:

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Acne scarring
  • Melasma
  • Enlarged pores

At Her Secret MedSpa, the team offers the most advanced microdermabrasion technology available today. Diamond microdermabrasion is light years ahead of outmoded exfoliation treatments that use harsh aluminum oxide crystals. The diamond microdermabrasion wand is encrusted with real diamond chips and has different settings to match your skin type’s appropriate level of exfoliation.

How does microdermabrasion work?

The diamond microdermabrasion applicator wand acts as an abrasive, literally sanding away the top surface of your skin. This might sound painful, but, in fact, diamond microdermabrasion is a gentle way of exfoliating your skin that doesn’t require any anesthetic or numbing cream.

As the handpiece exfoliates the dead skin cells from your face, it simultaneously suctions them away. Your experienced practitioner at Her Secret MedSpa has the ability to use the precise degree of pressure required to ensure the abrasion takes place at the right level and that the suction on your skin is sufficient to remove dead skin cells without damaging the underlying tissues.

What happens at a microdermabrasion treatment session?

Your microdermabrasion treatment at Her Secret MedSpa is an in-office procedure that typically takes about an hour to carry out. You’re made comfortable in a specially designed reclining chair, and when you’re ready, your practitioner applies the diamond microdermabrasion wand to your face.

When the session is over, your practitioner applies moisturizer and sunscreen to nourish and protect the fresh, new skin. You may experience some mild swelling and tenderness, and your skin might look quite red. The suction of the handpiece can also cause slight bruising in some cases, but these effects soon wear off.

Is there downtime after microdermabrasion?

You don’t need to rest after microdermabrasion, just carry on with your day as normal. You need to keep the skin moisturized and protected from the sun, though; your practitioner advises you on what products to use and any precautions to take.

You should see an immediate improvement in your complexion after microdermabrasion, and a continuing improvement in skin tone as new tissues grow. Most clients benefit from undergoing a series of microdermabrasion treatments, which you can discuss with your practitioner.

Microdermabrasion, when combined with a series of photofacials, can deliver optimal results in restoring skin health and beauty. At Her Secret MedSpa, the team customizes your microdermabrasion plan to help you achieve a more flawless complexion. Call the clinic today to schedule a consultation, or book an appointment online.
