Microdermabrasion Q&A

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a technique that uses a handheld device to slough off the top layer of your skin. The treatment aims to rejuvenate the tone and texture of your skin without invasive procedures or downtime.  

At Radiance Wellness & Aesthetics, certified nurse practitioner Zayda uses the DermaFrac device to gently sand away damaged skin. The process is less abrasive than dermabrasion and can deliver noticeable, lasting results.

How does microdermabrasion work?

Microdermabrasion works by clearing away damaged skin. Your skin has three layers: the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous layer. As the surface layer, the epidermis endures more damage than the other two. Removing the surface of this layer helps reveal the clear skin underneath. 

Microdermabrasion also stimulates new collagen and can strengthen existing fibers. Collagen is a protein in your skin that keeps it tight, firm, and responsive. 

Abundant collagen helps your skin bounce back quickly when you press it. As you age, your collagen levels deplete, leading to dull, sagging skin. Stimulating new collagen can help your skin appear more youthful.

The DermaFrac device includes a crystal-free disposable tip to gently exfoliate the skin with no need for an anesthetic. The treatment is completely non-invasive.

What skin concerns can microdermabrasion address?

Microdermabrasion can treat a wide range of skin concerns, such as:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brown spots
  • Freckles
  • Uneven tone and texture
  • Mild skin laxity
  • Enlarged pores
  • Oily or dry skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars

Because microdermabrasion exfoliates your skin, it appears brighter, smoother, and clearer after your treatment.

How often can I get microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion treatments are gentle enough for frequent use. You can return to Radiance Wellness & Aesthetics once every 2-4 weeks for DermaFrac treatments. The effects of microdermabrasion typically last for about one month*. Regular treatments can help you maintain your results.

You can also enhance your results by combining microdermabrasion with other aesthetic treatments, such as Botox® and fillers. Zayda can create a custom treatment plan for you to target your unique skin concerns.
