What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-surgical skin treatment that can be used to improve mild sun damage and the overall tone and texture of the skin. Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to manually exfoliate the outer epidermal layer, known as the stratum corneum. This layer of skin is made up of dead skin cells and can emphasize the effects of sun damage and aging.
Microdermabrasion causes less skin irritation than other exfoliating because little to no living tissue is removed during the treatment. Microdermabrasion chicago can be performed on all skin types and is safe for all skin tones.

What’s the difference between Microdermabrasion and Dermabrasion?
Dermabrasion uses a handheld device to remove the top layers of the skin. Skin is typically sensitive, red, and swollen for up to 10 days following a treatment session. Dermabrasion is a more intensive skin resurfacing treatment and requires some recovery time following a treatment. Microdermabrasion “gently sands” the skin with tiny crystals to remove the outermost layer of skin. There is no downtime associated with microdermabrasion treatments and the results are more subtle.
What can Microdermabrasion treat?
Microdermabrasion can improve hyperpigmentation, reduce the appearance of large pores, treat acne and reduce the appearance of scarring caused by acne, and improve the overall texture and tone of the skin. Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen production, which helps speed up the rejuvenation process and can result in a younger looking appearance.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed depends on the patient’s skin care and aesthetic goals. We typically recommend between six to ten treatments scheduled about two weeks apart for optimal results.
When will I see results?
Microdermabrasion treatments yield subtle results. Some patients can see visible changes after two treatments, but most begin to notice results after five treatments. Results can be maintained with regular “touch up” treatments every three months.
