What Happens During a Microdermabrasion Treatment?
When you arrive for your microdermabrasion appointment, your skin will be cleansed and your pores will be opened with steam. Cleanser will be applied for a second cleanse, and the treatment will begin. The microdermabrasion device has been described as feeling like sandpaper, but any discomfort is minimal and tolerable.
Some patients also experience peeling as the device passes over their skin. This is normal; it’s just your dead skin being brushed away. We recommend getting microdermabrasion treatments once a month in order for your skin to look its best and stay its healthiest.
