Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses a diamond tip to exfoliate and remove the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells. A suction device then vacuums the loose skin cells from the face leaving behind a fresh, clean complexion.
Who benefits most from microdermabrasion treatments?
Clients with fine lines, uneven pigmentation, rough texture or clogged pores may benefit most from microdermabrasion treatments. We also recommend it for melasma .
How is a medical spa treatment different than exfoliating at home or using a home device?
The microdermabrasion medical device used at Bio2 Skin Studio has a large motor and more power than a home device. This allows the diamond tip to penetrate deeper into the skin to provide precise exfoliation. We sterilize the wands as we would a surgical instrument, which is important for safety.
Is Microdermabrasion painful?
No it is not painful. It may leave your skin slightly red for a few hours and possibly more sensitive. A calming moisturizer and sunscreen will be applied after treatment.
How often should I get a Microdermabrasion?
This depends on your skincare needs. We typically recommend monthly microdermabrasions as part of a healthy skincare routine. To reduce acne scarring or texture concerns, we recommend weekly treatments initially until you are happy with your results and can resume a monthly maintenance plan.
What are some other benefits of Microdermabrasion?
It is an excellent treatment that helps maximize the benefit of a regular topical regimen, keep skin feeling smooth, help pigment look more even and speed clearance of whiteheads.
