Microdermabrasion (MDA) is a minimally invasive epidermal resurfacing process that can be used to treat uneven skin tone and texture, photoaging, striae, melasma, and scars, such as acne scars. It’s widely available, and it’s one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in the US.

Moreover, under the operation of a handheld vacuum machine, abrasive crystals are driven against the skin during the procedure. The crystals create moderate mechanical abrasion of the skin, eventually removing the epidermis’ stratum corneum layer.

A new epidermis with improved cosmesis forms as part of the wound healing process. The procedure is deemed safe for all Fitzpatrick skin types, with little adverse effects. MDA has been proven to improve skin permeability and the distribution of transdermal drugs dosed on a region of the skin treated with MDA, in addition to its cosmetic effects.

Microdermabrasion can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns including:

  • Dry skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sensitive skin
  • Oily skin
  • Acne-prone skin
  • Mature skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scarring and pigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone

How long do Microdermabrasion results last?

Results will last approximately a month but can vary from person to person. Though most commonly used on the face, the treatment is also extremely effective when used on the hands, back, chest and neck.

What is the treatment time?

The procedure takes about 20 minutes, with no downtime.

How often should you get a Microdermabrasion?

We recommend 6 sessions at monthly intervals for ultimate skin improvement.
