After microdermabrasion: recovery and results
After treatment, the underlying skin instantly looks and feels smoother and more radiant. Your skin may be a little pink, which goes away within a few hours, replaced by a healthy glow and smoother, more even-toned skin. Scars and discoloration will be lighter, pores will appear smaller, and there will be a noticeable reduction in wrinkles.
Any minimal discomfort is short-lived and can include a little redness and swelling. You can expect your skin to be flaky and dry for several days and more sensitive to the sun, so you’ll want to use sunscreen, especially immediately following a microdermabrasion session.
Treatments should be repeated every four to six weeks for optimal results. The number of microdermabrasion sessions you’ll need will depend on the severity of your skin concerns as well as your expectations. You’ll work with our estheticians to develop the right plan for your needs.
