At VIDA, skilled estheticians have performed countless microdermabrasion treatments for clients just like you—all with phenomenal results. Microdermabrasion works by gently rejuvenating the skin with a non-invasive approach. Skin is exfoliated, refreshed, and renewed in a single, short treatment. However, multiple treatments can help to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines and can minimize pigmentation and sun damage. You can also combine microdermabrasion with other treatments, such as superficial chemical peels. Using high-quality medical-grade skincare products will further enhance your anti-aging results.
How Microdermabrasion Works
There are various methods to perform microdermabrasion. Our skilled estheticians only use the DiamondTome diamond-tipped wand to exfoliate the skin. Other methods that use loose crystals can damage the skin and yield subpar results. However, the DiamondTome wand keeps the skin safe, so you never have to worry about injuries or contamination.
When dead skin cells are removed with a microdermabrasion treatment, skin immediately achieves a vibrant glow. Get rid of dry, dull skin and achieve a vital, refreshed appearance with microdermabrasion. Enhanced results can be achieved when you combine this popular treatment with VIDA’s wide range of complementary procedures.
Treatments That Pair Well with Microdermabrasion
Dermaplaning and microdermabrasion are a powerful duo, and both are completely non-invasive. Alternating Dermaplaning and Microdermabrasion treatments can maintain healthy, vibrant skin. Dermaplaning removes vellus hair, also known as “peach fuzz and exfoliates dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.
Many VIDA clients also like to pair microdermabrasion with microneedling, and it’s a combination recommended by our skilled estheticians. Microneedling works by creating thousands of micro-channels in the top layer of the skin. An FDA approved device is used to create micro-channels in the skin. This encourages the body to increase blood flow and start producing more collagen.
You might also want to pair microdermabrasion with a superficial chemical peel. These light chemical peels remove only the very top surface of the skin in a controlled environment, to help with pigmentation and minimize sun damage. However, keep in mind that chemical peels are a topical, customized procedure. You can help them to better penetrate the skin by removing dead skin cells from the surface with microdermabrasion first. It’s the ultimate precursor to your chemical peel. This combination is often known as a Microderm-Peel, and is a popular treatment for improving skin that has a rough texture, uneven tone, or wrinkles.
Your unique skin concerns can be addressed with a personalized consultation. Even better, this technique also helps to stimulate new skin growth and collagen production, resulting in a more youthful complexion. Any skin type is suitable for a Microderm-Peel, and while you’ll see results after one treatment, more significant results are revealed after a package of five treatments.
Frequently Asked Questions
What to Expect with Microdermabrasion
During your complimentary consultation or first appointment, your skin will be cleansed and assessed by our skilled estheticians. We’ll determine the level of exfoliation you need or want, and discuss what the process will feel like and what you can expect.
During the treatment, microdermabrasion is performed in strokes. A lot of clients describe it as feeling like a cat’s tongue with a little suction. As the skin is exfoliated, the microdermabrasion machine suctions away debris, so no dead skin cells have a chance to rest on the surface.
Following your appointment, you’ll notice that your skin is smoother and more youthful-looking. You can book your next microdermabrasion appointment about one month after your treatment so you can keep those results and your rejuvenated skin.
