Microdermabrasion Q & A

How does microdermabrasion work?

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive treatment designed to deeply exfoliate and revitalize your skin. The treatment works by using a handheld device that contains a special applicator with an abrasive surface at the end.

As this microdermabrasion tool is moved over your skin, it sands away the outer layer and allows the healthier skin underneath to shine through. Microdermabrasion can be performed as a standalone spa service, or as an addition to a luxurious facial treatment to entirely rejuvenate your skin. 

What can microdermabrasion treat?

Amber Medical Spa proudly offers microdermabrasion treatments to target a wide variety of complexion imperfections that both men and women face. Your microdermabrasion service can minimize the appearance of all of these issues — and more — during a single session:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation 
  • Enlarged pores 
  • Lackluster skin
  • Sun damage 
  • Acne scars
  • Melasma 

Microdermabrasion from Amber Medical Spa even helps stimulate rapid cell turnover and boost collagen production, so the more you have treatments, the firmer and tighter your skin becomes. 

When can I expect results with microdermabrasion?

Immediately! No downtime is needed after a microdermabrasion session. Your skin might appear a little red or irritated afterward, but these side effects fade quickly and you notice more vibrant youthful skin.

Because you won’t have to worry about a lengthy downtime after a microdermabrasion treatment at Amber Medical Spa, it’s perfectly safe to schedule your treatment in the morning and be ready for a night out on the town the same day.

How do I prepare for microdermabrasion?

While microdermabrasion is safe and effective for all skin types, Dr. González evaluates your skin to ensure microdermabrasion the best service option for your skin. In general, to help you prepare for a microdermabrasion treatment, it’s beneficial to:

  • Avoid direct sunlight or tanning for one to two weeks beforehand
  • Skip waxing the treatment area at least a week ahead of time
  • Stop using exfoliating creams or topical acne ointments a few days beforehand

Amber Medical Spa is dedicated to ensuring you experience the glowing, younger-looking skin you deserve from your microdermabrasion service.
