Microdermabrasion Q&A

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a skin care treatment that addresses common complexion issues and enhances its overall appearance.

At Dallas Family Medical & Aesthetics, the team uses a professional level of exfoliation to resurface your outermost layer of skin to promote new cell growth, which helps your skin produce collagen and elastin. The treatment helps your skin feel firmer and tighter and evens out your tone and texture. It reduces the signs of aging and helps you look more youthful.

Microdermabrasion is safe, noninvasive, and doesn’t require the use of any chemicals on your skin. Instead, it uses an exfoliant to remove your dead skin cells. 

How does microdermabrasion work?

Your surface layer of skin has uneven pigment and texture that can affect the appearance of your face. When you have microdermabrasion, your specially trained technician at Dallas Family Medical & Aesthetics uses a small handheld tool that emits extremely small crystals to buff away your skin’s top layer to reveal the healthy skin underneath. 

The procedure only lasts about 30 minutes, allowing you to get back to your daily routine without any downtime or pain. You might experience some temporary redness in your skin, but it should be gone within 24 hours. The end result leaves you with an enhanced complexion.

Am I a candidate for microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion might be right for you if you have:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Loose skin
  • Age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Large pores
  • Blackheads
  • Blemishes
  • Lack of collagen and elastin

Talk with your aesthetic specialist about your beauty goals. Getting 2-5 treatments spaced out over 2-3 weeks might be recommended for you to reach your desired results.

How do I care for my skin after microdermabrasion?

After your procedure, you need to follow an aftercare skin regime to maintain your skin’s new, youthful appearance. You should protect your skin from the sun by avoiding it completely or wearing sunscreen whenever you’re outside. Your specialist can recommend an excellent maintenance program for you to help you manage your radiant complexion with long-term results.
