Microdermabrasion Q & A

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is an effective type of exfoliation that gently sands away the thicker, damaged outer layer of your skin. The team at Luminance Aesthetics uses a minimally abrasive device to conduct the exfoliation.

With the removal of dull skin, you experience:

  • Softening of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smoothing of coarse skin texture
  • Reduction of acne and pore size
  • Fading of scars and brown spots
  • Improvements in sun-damaged skin

Microdermabrasion boosts collagen production, giving you a younger, more vibrant complexion. Dr. Dhar may recommend combining microdermabrasion with a HydraFacial for optimal results.

Who is a candidate for microdermabrasion?

Men and women of all skin types and tones can benefit from microdermabrasion. The procedure is a valid alternative to chemical peels as it allows you to avoid harsh ingredients if you have sensitive skin or are pregnant.

Microdermabrasion especially benefits people with acne, particularly whiteheads and blackheads, and especially those who want more open pores and the removal of impurities. You can experience better penetration of prescription anti-acne products following microdermabrasion, too.

Dr. Dhar can customize your microdermabrasion according to your skin needs. The intensity of the pressure and suction strength are adjusted depending on your goals and skin health.

What should I expect during a microdermabrasion procedure?

Dr. Dhar or one of her expert aestheticians applies a wand to your skin. At the end of the wand is the exfoliation tool, which gently rubs away the dead layers of your skin. You may feel a bit of tugging or grit as the wand moves across your skin. Most people tolerate the sensations quite well.

The team at Luminance Aesthetics then applies a hydrating cream to your freshened skin. Following treatment, you need virtually no downtime.

How long do the results of microdermabrasion last?

The positive effects of microdermabrasion last a long time, especially if you undergo several treatments. Often, Dr. Dhar recommends you have two microdermabrasion treatments per month at first and then transition to a once-per-month schedule for maintenance.
