Your skin works hard for you.

It stretches and shrinks, toughens and softens, and protects you from all kinds of harsh elements. Skin that works this hard should feel amazing, right?

Sometimes, our skin can feel a bit run down. Whether signs of aging or scarring are beginning to appear, or the effects of damage or injuries have made your skin feel rougher, we’re here to help. Treatments, like microdermabrasion, can help rejuvenate the look and feel of your skin.

How often you should get microdermabrasion depend on your unique skin. Typically, we recommend a microdermabrasion facial every 2–4 weeks for 3–6 sessions. The licensed skin care professionals at Iconic Beauty Aesthetics can tailor a plan specific to you!

What Is Microdermabrasion? 

Microdermabrasion can reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, scarring, and other skin-related conditions or concerns. This minimally invasive procedure rejuvenates your overall skin tone and texture, leaving your skin brighter and softer.

Using a special applicator, the outer layer of your skin is gently exfoliated to wash away dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion is safe for more skin types, but it’s best to consult your practitioner before the procedure is done. 

Microdermabrasion is performed in-office and usually takes about an hour. It should be performed by a licensed skin care professional, like the amazing practitioners at Iconic Beauty Aesthetics. 

The frequency of your treatments depends on your specific skin type, skin conditions, and goals, but generally, we recommend a microdermabrasion treatment every 2–4 weeks for 3-6 sessions. And then every season, as this maintains your results, good skin health, and keeps your skin glowing! 

Who Might Want Microdermabrasion?

Someone who may benefit from microdermabrasion may be looking to address certain skin issues, such as:

  • Fine lines or wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age spots
  • Acne 
  • Scarring 
  • Stretch marks
  • Dull complexion
  • Uneven tone & texture
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma

These skin “issues” are usually just a part of life, and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. But if there’s one thing we understand, it’s how your outward appearance can impact your confidence.

You deserve to feel as strong, smart, and sexy as you are! If your skin isn’t helping your confidence, treatments like microdermabrasion can help you get back to feeling like yourself.

What Are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is like giving your skin a fresh start! It’s great for exfoliating dead skin cells, which can leave your skin looking dull. By buffing away those dead cells, you reveal smoother, brighter skin underneath.

Plus, it can help with things like reducing the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and sun damage. And the best part? It’s non-invasive, so you can get back to your routine right after treatment, with that fresh-faced glow.

Frequently Asked Questions About Microdermabrasion

Does Microdermabrasion Hurt?

Microdermabrasion shouldn’t hurt at all! Many patients describe their treatment as feeling like a deep facial.

There’s no need for anesthetic or numbing agents, either, and the treatment is safe for your skin and health.  

What Should I Expect?

An initial consultation is done first to determine your goals, skin needs, and how many microdermabrasion sessions you’ll need to begin.

During each session, our lovely staff will check you in and get you settled in the treatment room. Your practitioner will use a handheld device to gently remove the outer layer of skin, targeting specific areas that were reviewed during your consultation. 

This can take up to an hour, but you should feel totally relaxed. As we go, don’t hesitate to ask questions or voice any concerns during your appointment. 

And, because microdermabrasion is noninvasive, the downtime after each session is basically nonexistent! You can go right back to your daily routine after the appointment. We apply a variety of serums, moisturizer, tinted sunscreen to protect your skin after each session, so you can go about your day.
