A treatment takes 20-30 minutes. You may experience mild tingling for a few hours after a treatment, but you can resume regular activities right away.
You will need a series of 6 microdermabrasions, every 1 to 2 weeks. Maintenance sessions can always be done before a special event.
Your skin will look and feel smoother immediately – this softness can last for weeks, especially if you combine it with recommended anti-aging products and sun protection. However, since it is such a mild treatment, it may not have the same impact as some of the more penetrating treatments such as photorejuvenation or chemical peels.
Regular sessions can be a very useful treatment for mild to moderate acne concerns. Topical skin care products will also be recommended by Dr Nield and her staff. Adult acne is a very common concern and regular microderm treatments can be quite useful in keeping the acne under control.
Make sure your face is completely clean – no moisturizers or makeup, please.
If you’ve had a recent cold sore, please delay your treatment, or speak to us about antiviral medication that can help prevent an outbreak after treatment.
Avoid treatment if you’ve recently had a sunburn or a skin infection.
Avoid aspirin, green tea or herbal medications, as they may cause bruising to occur.
