The microdermabrasion treatment experience: What to expect during your appointment
Most of our patients report that the microdermabrasion treatment experience is quite pleasant and easy to tolerate. To begin, you will lie comfortably on the treatment table while we thoroughly cleanse your face. We will then apply aluminum oxide crystals to exfoliate your skin. From there, we will move the microdermabrasion unit over the treatment area to clear away the crystals and surface skin cells. Your body will respond to this process by producing new collagen and elastin – along with a more youthful complexion.
The entire experience should take just 30 to 60 minutes to complete, depending on the size of your treatment area. It is not painful, though you may experience a warming sensation. There is no downtime and you will be free to return to work and your normal daily routine right away, making microdermabrasion a true “lunch time” procedure. However, your skin will be more sensitive than usual throughout the next few days, so it’s important to wear sunscreen.
