Microdermabrasion Q&A

What is microdermabrasion?

During a microdermabrasion session, a special instrument provides medical exfoliation to your skin. The hand-held device has fine crystals or a diamond tip. When gently applied to your face, it removes old, dead skin cells to reveal a fresh layer.

The deep exfoliation you experience with microdermabrasion stimulates your skin’s production of collagen, a major protein that adds strength and elasticity to your skin. In your youth, your skin produces a lot of collagen, but as you age, production naturally decreases. 

Stimulating collagen production with microdermabrasion restores a youthful volume, improving skin laxity and evening out irregular skin texture.

Professional microdermabrasion at Rose Lavande Med Spa provides results that aren’t possible with at-home exfoliation. You get noticeably rejuvenated, glowing skin following a session.

What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?

Even if you have a great at-home skin routine, microdermabrasion can help. The exfoliation enhances your efforts and allows any products you’re using to give you maximum benefit.

The benefits microdermabrasion offers to your skin’s health and appearance include:

  • Smoother skin texture
  • Less fine lines and wrinkles
  • More even skin tone
  • Improved look of age spots and blackheads
  • Reduced appearance of acne scars
  • Less hyperpigmentation

Microdermabrasion can shrink oversized pores, too. It’s a good alternative to chemical peels, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Does microdermabrasion hurt?

Microdermabrasion offers a deep level of exfoliation, but most patients find it quite tolerable and virtually painless. Lasting just 30 minutes, it can be described as feeling like a facial massage.

You won’t need to schedule any downtime following microdermabrasion. You may have slight redness following treatment and will need to be diligent about applying sunscreen as your skin is temporarily extra sensitive to the sun’s rays.

How does oxygen therapy enhance the effects of microdermabrasion?

Oxygen therapy is a medical-grade treatment that rejuvenates your skin cells. The team at Rose Lavande Med Spa uses a specialized machine to airbrush nourishing oxygen onto exfoliated skin along with valuable antioxidants and anti-aging serums. 

The oxygen helps revive the newly revealed cells and, because it’s applied at a high pressure, it penetrates beneath the surface of the skin to promote healing and revitalization.
