This minimally invasive cosmetic procedure is a great solution for anyone looking to renew their overall skin tone and texture. For youthful, glowing skin, Microdermabrasion offers a rejuvenating experience to improve the effects of sun damage, acne, aging, and other skin-related conditions.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
With the use of a special applicator, this procedure gently exfoliates and removes dry, dead skin cells from the thick outer layer of the skin. Microdermabrasion is a comfortable, painless procedure with no needles, lasers, or anesthesia and is enjoyed by adults of all ages.
There are a few ways that treatments are completed, depending on the use of the applicator. Most applicators use suction and minor abrasive techniques to remove the top layers of dead skin cells, however, some treatments use crystals as part of the exfoliation process.
The face is the most common area for Microdermabrasion treatments, however, any skin area can benefit from this procedure.
Benefits Of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion improves skin appearance and provides noticeable results immediately after treatment. Some of its most popular benefits include:
- Smooth, fresh-looking skin
- Minimized fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduced appearance of dark spots
- Brighter skin tone and color
- Smaller pores
- Reduced scarring of minor acne
- Ability to absorb skincare products more effectively
- Reduced age spots and early sun damage
Since your skin takes about 30 days to fully reproduce new skin cells, it is recommended to have treatments done every few weeks for the best results.
Am I a Candidate for Microdermabrasion?
Almost all skin types and skin colors can safely participate in Microdermabrasion treatments, however, you should always discuss any skin concerns you have with your provider before receiving any treatment. Many people who receive Microdermabrasion treatments have some of the following skin concerns:
- Natural effects of aging (i.e. fine lines, wrinkles, age spots)
- Minor scarring from acne or hyperpigmentation
- Enlarged pores, acne, or blackheads
- Uneven skin tones or textures
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks
There are also many patients who are not affected by the following skin concerns that simply prefer Microdermabrasion as a way to keep their skin healthy, bright, and smooth as well.
How Do I Prepare For Microdermabrasion Treatments?
Since Microdermabrasion is minimally invasive and nonsurgical, there is not much that you need to do to prepare for this procedure. You may be advised to discontinue the use of other exfoliating products a few days prior to your treatment. You will also need to make sure that you are not wearing any makeup on the day of your treatment.
What Is Recovery Like After Microdermabrasion?
One of the major benefits of Microdermabrasion is that there is little to no recovery time. Your skin may be more sensitive the week following your treatment, therefore you may be advised to stay out of direct sunlight, avoid tanning products or waxing, and use moisturizers to keep your skin hydrated within that time. Some common side effects may include mild tenderness, redness, or swelling, however, these effects typically resolve themselves within a few hours after treatment.

"I have never felt so confident. Dr. Chang completely changed how I saw myself in the mirror. I was terribly self conscious of my nose from my youth and finally decided to go through with the surgery. Not only was it inexpensive compared to the other three doctors I contacted, the before and after pictures of patients were also much better looking than the others! The whole process of surgery and recovery was quick and pretty much painless. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting cosmetic surgery. It really made me a happier person." - Catherine M.

"I cannot say enough about my surgery with Dr. Chang! I had full facial Rejuvenation including a facelift brow lift and upper eyelids done 4 months ago. I also had a chemical peel to my lower eyelids and mouth. They was barely any pain and I was back to work the next week! I am so thrilled and my friends are so impressed. I cannot say enough about my experience! He is both caring and an amazing surgeon! Thank you so much!" - Cathy W.
The entire experience and outcome was everything I hoped for and I cannot thank Dr. Chang enough! He is a true pro and I recommend 100% without reservation!" - Ashley R.
"I went to Dr. Chang to correct the damage done to my breasts from pregnancy and breastfeeding. He went above and beyond to make me comfortable and to explain exactly what the procedures (lift + implants) would entail. He was extremely responsive and truly understood the look that I was trying to achieve - full, natural for my frame, and with minimal scarring. I'm only two days out from surgery and I'm already loving my results. I am so glad that I chose Dr. Chang to restore my chest to its pre-baby appearance. I actually think they are going to be better than they ever were before I had kids!" - Emily L.
