What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that uses a specialized tool to gently remove the outermost layer of skin, revealing the healthier-looking skin beneath it and increasing collagen production.

Microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of skin concerns, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Melasma
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Mild acne
  • Acne scars
  • Large pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Stretch marks

What are the Benefits?

Microdermabrasion offers several benefits, including:

  • Wider Candidacy: Unlike certain laser treatments and dermabrasion, microdermabrasion can safely treat patients with any skin tone.
  • No Chemicals: Patients who are especially sensitive to skincare products and chemical peels can undergo treatment without the risk of irritation or allergic reaction. Microdermabrasion patients can still achieve similar results that can last for months.
  • Multiple Treatment Areas: Though microdermabrasion is commonly used to treat flaws like acne, acne scars, and fine lines on the face, it’s also a safe and effective way to treat minor imperfections on various areas of the body, including the neck, chest, back, and hands.
  • Quick and Convenient: Microdermabrasion is a fast treatment with no downtime required. You can conveniently fit this treatment into your day and get back to your regular schedule immediately following treatment.
  • Gentle and Reliable: Unlike take-home skincare kits, this treatment is gentle on your skin, and our professionals can protect you from irritation and scabbing. Additionally, you can trust that each member of our team will use a technique to yield the best results in fewer treatments than an at-home microdermabrasion device would require.

Who are the Best Candidates for Microdermabrasion?

We believe that practically anyone looking into Microdermabrasion in the Atlanta area can be a great candidate! We do request that you come in with a positive attitude, maintain realistic expectations for your results, and be at least 18 years of age. If for whatever reason microdermabrasion isn’t the best treatment option for your skin concerns, our friendly staff can provide you with other options that better suit your goals and skin type.

First Step

What’s the First Step?

Before your microdermabrasion treatment at our office in Peachtree City, right outside of Atlanta, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your skin concerns with our skin care professionals to see if you’re a good candidate. During your consultation, our team will listen to your goals to help you choose the right skin treatment for your needs. Once your appointment is finished, a treatment plan will be created for you and you will be able to schedule your first session with our Patient Coordinator.

In the week before your treatment, avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, tanning creams, exfoliating treatments, and waxing. Remove makeup and clean your skin before your appointment.

What to Expect on the Day of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion typically takes about 30 minutes or less to complete, depending on the number of areas treated and the size of each section. Microdermabrasion can help you achieve clearer, brighter skin after your first procedure. However, many patients choose to undergo repeat treatments for more pronounced results.

Microdermabrasion Recovery

Microdermabrasion does not require downtime, and patients typically experience little to no discomfort. Patients can usually resume their normal activities immediately afterward. In the days following your treatment, keep your skin hydrated and use gentle skincare products. In the weeks following your treatment, wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher because your treated skin will be especially sensitive to the sun’s UV rays.

By exfoliating your skin and stimulating cell renewal, we can help reveal youthful, healthy skin immediately following your treatment. Microdermabrasion can address a number of cosmetic concerns and has helped our patients accomplish a wide range of results, including:

  • More even skin tone
  • Fewer acne breakouts
  • Reduction in lines and wrinkles
  • Improved texture
  • Smaller pores

Microdermabrasion FAQs

Is Microdermabrasion painful?

Pain is unfortunately relative, and while most patients would say that Microdermabrasion doesn’t “hurt”, there are some who find the treatment uncomfortable. Most patients actually compare the sensation experienced during the process to the rough lick of a cat’s tongue.

How many appointments will I need?

To see the best results from your treatments, we strongly recommend anywhere between six and twelve sessions to obtain the most impressive results. The degree of change your skin needs will determine how many sessions you should receive, but when you come in for your consultation and your skin gets evaluated, we will be able to provide you with a more accurate number.

How long until I see results?

As mentioned above, the more sessions you receive, the better your skin will look. That being said, you should see some immediate changes to your skin after your first session. Over the next 24 hours, you will notice an increasingly vibrant and healthy glow to your skin as the effects become more pronounced.

Can I combine Microdermabrasion with other procedures?

Because microdermabrasion is a gentle and conservative procedure, it can be combined with other treatments. Often, patients will choose to undergo rotating treatments of microdermabrasion and light chemical peels to treat both the surface and deeper layers of their skin. Together, these treatments can produce a completely refreshed appearance.

What are the risks associated with Microdermabrasion?

At Skin Care at 5th Ave., we take your safety very seriously, so when you come to us for your Microdermabrasion, you can rest easy knowing that you’re in qualified hands. There are some potential risks and side effects associated with the treatment, such as:
  • Bruising can occur from the suction and may last several days.
  • Flakey and/or dry skin
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Your skin will be more sensitive to sun exposure. Be sure to use sunscreen, especially immediately following a microdermabrasion session.
These side effects should heal on their own within a few hours up until a few days, but if you have any concerning reactions, please contact our office.
