Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is Microdermabrasion?
A: Microdermabrasion uses medical grade crystals to remove the dead, outermost layer of skin. This skin exfoliation process reveals the new, living skin cells that are soft, smooth and receptive to nutrients. With over a decade of success in Europe, the microdermabrasion procedure has been used to treat millions of satisfied people. The benefits of microdermabrasion over chemical and laser peels include less pain or discomfort, minimal risk, suited for all skin types, no anesthesia required, no recovery time, no hazardous chemicals.

Q: Is it safe?

A:  Microdermabrasion is a safe, non-surgical skin resurfacing procedure performed in the doctor's office. Those who are in good health, possess good skin tone, and desire realistic results, are excellent candidates for microdermabrasion.

Q: Will it radically change my appearance?

A: No. However, microdermabrasion will help to treat and/or diminish blackheads and whiteheads, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin, acne prone skin, superficial age spots, hyperpigmentation, oily skin, and dry and patchy skin.

Q: I heard that microdermabrasion is called the "lunch time peel." What does that mean?

A: The average microdermabrasion procedure takes less than thirty minutes, depending upon the skin condition, the area to be treated, and the desired outcome. Patients working not far from our office can have the treatment done in their lunch hour.

Q: Can I go back to work after my treatment?
A: Yes, you might have some redness, but most people have no visible signs of the treatment.

Q: When will I need another treatment?
A: The majority of our patients like to have a microdermabrasion once a month and it is advisable to schedule your treatments in advance as lunch time slots fill up quickly.
