What is the recovery time with microdermabrasion?

Would you like to have microdermabrasion done but you’re concerned about the recovery time?  Microdermabrasion is an excellent skin rejuvenation treatment that exfoliates old skin cells that give the skin a dull appearance.    But what is the recovery time with microdermabrasion.

What is microdermabrasion and how does it work

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin treatment that exfoliates the top layers of dead skin cells.  It is a safe, effective procedure that is suitable for all skin types.  Microdermabrasion can be performed using a diamond tip wand that is moved gently across the skin, to remove dead skin cells and bacteria trapped on the surface, as well as dirt within the pores.  The device will simultaneously suction the loosened debris off the skin (learn more).

Recovery time with microdermabrasion

There is no downtime with microdermabrasion, so patients are typically able to resume normal activities immediately.  There may be some redness in the treated area for a few hours after the procedure, but side-effects are minimal.  However, the skin is very sensitive after microdermabrasion, so patients are advised to moisturize regularly, and wear sunscreen when they have to go outdoors.

Microdermabrasion delivers great skin rejuvenation benefits, without the need for any downtime.  This makes it the ideal option for men and women with busy lifestyles.  A typical microdermabrasion treatment takes 30-60 minutes,  so it can be easily scheduled during the lunch hour.

How many treatments will I need

Most patients need 3-6 microdermabrasion treatments to achieve the desired results.  Sessions are spaced about 1 week apart.
