Microdermabrasion FAQs

Ideal Candidate?

Any individual, men or women, with skin irregularities may consider the benefits of microdermabrasion. It’s an effective treatment for those who have fine wrinkles, dull or uneven skin tone, and rough skin texture.

Who Should Avoid It?

There are some precautions for those who have specific skin conditions, including severe acne or those who are on aggressive acne medications. People who also have multiple telangiectasises should also not consider this procedure. We will evaluate patients individually.

How About Freckles?

Freckles are an overproduction of melanin in the skin and common to those who have a fair complexion. It becomes visible due to extreme exposure to sun. Although microdermabrasion can remove the top layers of skin where freckles are contained, there are other alternatives specifically for freckle removal such as a deeper chemical peel or photofacial treatment to minimize the freckles from reoccurring.

Is A Chemical Peel Better?

Microdermabrasion and chemical peels both refinish the skin to promote new skin growth. Both can be mildly or aggressively invasive depending on how many layers are involved. The only difference between the two treatments is the method used in achieving the intended results. Microdermabrasion gently polishes the skin while a chemical peel uses solutions, usually acid based, to attain a similar result.
