How Often Should You Get Microdermabrasion Treatments?

Microdermabrasion is a fast and non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that delivers real results. It’s a cosmetic therapy offered by Dr. Shannon Maltais and her licensed aestheticians at Physician Skin Solutions in Glendale, AZ.

A significant advantage of microdermabrasion is how it offers all patients the restoration of their skin’s natural glow, regardless of their age or skin tone. Here’s what you need to know about this popular skin rejuvenation treatment and how many sessions you’ll need.

What Is Microdermabrasion?

In a nutshell, microdermabrasion is a cosmetic treatment that exfoliates the skin, smooths the surface, and lightly resurfaces it by eliminating dead skin cells. The process of microdermabrasion involves abrasion and suction techniques.

One of the reasons for microdermabrasion’s growing popularity is how it’s a non-invasive cosmetic procedure. There is no surgery involved, and there is no need for needles or anesthesia to complete the treatment.

At Physician Skin Solutions, our microdermabrasion treatments use advanced Altair Instruments DiamondTome technology. The device has small diamond chips embedded in the tip and glides over your skin to eliminate dirt, debris, and dead skin cells.

How Often Can You Get Microdermabrasion?

As you can imagine, each of our microdermabrasion clients has a specific goal in mind for their skin. Some people might be happy with the results after a single treatment session, while others have more advanced cosmetic goals they wish to achieve that will require multiple treatments to achieve.

It’s worth noting that your skin will typically regenerate every 30 days or so. That means some of our clients may need weekly sessions to achieve their cosmetic goals fully. And others might be fine with monthly maintenance sessions.

On average, six to twelve treatments are ideal for all people to see significant skin improvements.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a medical-grade facial treatment that is ideal for clients with mild to moderate skin concerns. This treatment is also often paired with a chemical peel for enhanced results.

Unlike retail exfoliants, microdermabrasion delivers significant results and often from just a single treatment session. There’s no downtime with microdermabrasion, as the process only takes 30 to 45 minutes to perform.

Our microdermabrasion clients experience the following positive facial skin improvements:

  • Brighter and clearer skin;
  • Fewer enlarged skin pores;
  • Diminished effects of the aging process, such as fewer wrinkles and fine lines.
