Something that has the word “abrasion” in its name sounds like it would be painful, but microdermabrasion is certainly not. The American Society of Plastics Surgeons says that while scratching and a mild stinging are common, it is not overly painful. In fact, it can feel like a vibrating massage on your face. There is not even a need for any anesthesia. After the procedure your dermatologist will even soothe your skin with medicated moisturizer to provide you with the knowledge to protect your new layer of skin from the elements.
Microdermabrasion can help with skin problems such as aging, spots, and damage from the sun. it will also help with discoloration and early aging lines or wrinkles. it is a quick procedure that will have you in and out in about an hour, although it usually requires a few sessions to get the best results. For many, two sessions per month is enough, with maintenance treatments every month or so after the initial period.
You can also do an ‘advanced’ microdermabrasion treatment which is a microdermabrasion followed by a peel.
