Microdermabrasion FAQ

Is microdermabrasion right for me?

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure created to work with the skin’s system of growth and replacement to reveal younger-looking skin. Microdermabrasion in Richmond is effective in reducing fine lines, crow’s feet, age spots, and acne discoloration. Microdermabrasion can be successfully used on light- or dark-skinned patients to treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees, hands, and back.

What happens during microdermabrasion?

A finely controlled spray of crystals removes the outer layer of the skin, accelerating your own skin cell turnover, and revealing the younger-looking, tighter and healthier skin underneath. The average procedure takes less than 1 hour, depending on your skin type and condition. The number of treatments recommended for maximum results can range from 5-12, spaced 2-4 weeks apart. If you’re interested in microdermabrasion in Richmond, our clinic offers this service with our experienced and skilled estheticians. After your initial consultation, we’ll provide you with a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and goals.

What results should I anticipate?

In addition to surface exfoliation, microdermabrasion promotes the production of new cells in the basal (the deepest layer of the dermis), cleans the pores, and stimulates blood flow and collagen to further improve skin texture. Many people will notice improvements in the texture and appearance of their skin immediately after the first treatment. Treatments require no patient downtime or recovery time, and most people return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

What can I expect post-treatment?

The beauty of microdermabrasion is that you can return to work or any normal activity immediately post-treatment. You may reapply makeup or go for a run with the feel of freshly rejuvenated skin. It is best to wear sunscreen and avoid heavy sun exposure after a treatment session.
