Home Laser & Skincare Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a deep exfoliating treatment popular among men and women. It reduces wrinkles, improves skin texture and tone by polishing the topmost layer. In addition to polishing the skin, it also vacuums away the dead skin cells in a safe and controlled manner. Microdermabrasion is a quick skin uplifting treatment that improves our complexion and promotes the growth of healthy new cells.

Candidacy Criteria

The microdermabrasion treatment is best for these conditions:

  • Facial lines or wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age spots and sunspots
  • Wrinkled and saggy skin
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Scars
  • Acne
  • Skin dullness

Pre-Procedure Care

Some general pre-procedure instructions are as follows:

  • Do not use sunblock and other facial creams for at least a week before the treatment.
  • If you have taken a cosmetic procedure recently, wait 3-4 weeks before undergoing microdermabrasion.
  • Avoid waxing and tanning the skin for 2 weeks before the procedure.
  • Use preventive measures as per your dermatologist’s instructions.
  • On the day of treatment, wash your face with a non-oily cleanser.


The microdermabrasion procedure takes about 30-40 minutes and has minimal downtime. Although it is a non-surgical procedure, it involves some level of invasiveness. So, the dermatologist should prescribe a numbing cream to prevent any discomfort during the procedure.

A dermatologist starts the procedure by spraying tiny crystals on the candidate’s skin’s surface. These tiny crystals tend to remove the outermost layer of the skin. The skin treats this removal as an injury and regrows a fresh layer of the skin, which is softer and brighter than before.

Post-Procedure Care

After the procedure, the dermatologist may suggest some aftercare practices to help the skin recover smoothly. Candidates should follow these instructions if they want to avoid any complications. Some general post-procedure instructions are:

  • It is recommended to avoid any other cosmetic treatment before and after microdermabrasion.
  • Take dermatologist-prescribed painkillers to avoid any discomfort.
  • Keep the new skin protected against possible risk factors.
  • Avoid rubbing the new skin for at least one week.
  • Do not expose the new skin to the sun for 15-20 days.
  • If you are unable to avoid sun exposure, use a sunshade.
  • Apply a gentle cleanser and keep the skin moisturized.
  • Use anti-inflammatory creams as prescribed by the dermatologist.

Recovery and Results

Microdermabrasion removes the skin’s outermost surface, so candidates will feel some discomfort for a few days after the treatment. But once the skin heals, the results will become noticeable. Generally, the recovery period after the procedure is 6-10 days.

Microdermabrasion FAQ’s

What does microdermabrasion do for your face?

Microdermabrasion works like gentle sandpaper for the skin, removing the topmost layer of dead cells and uneven skin. It also treats skin discoloration, sun damage, mild scarring, and stretch marks.

How many microdermabrasion sessions are recommended?

The number of required sessions varies for each candidate, depending on their skin condition and desired results. Some patients require more sessions to get the maximum results. But in most cases, 6-12 sessions are needed in order to get the best possible results.

Is microdermabrasion more effective than other facial treatments?

Yes, microdermabrasion advances skin revival and produces new collagen. It gives a mild skin peeling and exfoliates the skin from within. This procedure offers guaranteed results as an individual treatment, but these results can be maximized by combining it with other skin rejuvenation treatments.

Is microdermabrasion treatment painful?

Microdermabrasion removes the dead cells from the skin’s surface, causing no severe pain. However, a slight discomfort could be felt while eliminating the old and damaged layer of the skin.

Is there any downtime after microdermabrasion?

Since microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive treatment, it has a short downtime. The skin needs some time to heal completely after microdermabrasion, usually 6-10 days. Moreover, the new skin layer is more prone to sunlight and other factors, requiring extra care.

How long do microdermabrasion results last?

Generally, the effects of microdermabrasion treatment last for about a month or so. These effects can last more than a month if the candidate’s skin is in good condition.
