Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive epidermal resurfacing procedure used to treat uneven skin tone/texture, photoaging, striae, melasma, and scars, including acne scars. 


  • Avoid direct UV sunlight or exposure for 5-7 days before treatment
  • Schedule any other facial treatments 2-3 weeks before service
  • Discontinue use of any exfoliating cleansers or scrubs 3-5 days before treatment
  • Arrive on time and with a clean face to your appointment.


During a microdermabrasion treatment, your provider will use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker outer layer of skin that is uneven. This creates a smoother texture and appearance of the skin.


  • Some redness and flaking/ peeling of the treated areas is common.
  • Keep the new skin clean and moisturized, it will help the skin heal properly and reduce the irritation that may come with the healing process.
  • Anti-inflammatory creams and/or cold compresses may be used as needed. Avoid scratching and or picking at the treated areas as this can delay healing and cause hyperpigmentation.
  • It is important to avoid irritating the treated skin for one week with harsh chemicals, rubbing or tanning.
  • Sun damage reverses the effects of microdermabrasion, so wearing spf 30+ daily will help maintain your investment.
