Q: What is a microdermabrasion?

A: At AH Laser Aesthetics,a Microdermabrasion is a quick and convenient procedure that is very popular with patients who have early signs of aging, sun exposure, and other facial imperfections.
Microdermabrasion is a closed vacuum system that delivers aluminum oxide crystals to the skin to aggressively exfoliate away the dull layer of dead skin, smooth and re-texturize the skin, and leave it soft and glowing. A vacuum then suctions away the exfoliated cells and crystals from your skin’s surface.

Q: Is microdermabrasion safe?

A: Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types and colors.

Q: Why should I consider a microdermabrasion?

A: At AH Laser Aesthetics, we work with you to achieve your skincare goals. We usually recommend Microdermabrasion for the following concerns:
• Dull, oily or leathery skin texture
• Minimizing enlarged pores
• Exfoliating and suctioning clogged pores in acne cases
• Polishing and reducing fine lines
• Mild acne scarring
• Mild pigment irregularities
• Enhancing penetration of therapeutic remedies
• Hyperpigmentation
• Minimizing blemishes
• Elimination of white and black heads
• Keratosis Pilaris

Q: Does microdermabrasion hurt?

A: Microdermabrasion may sting a little around the eye area. Our Aesthetician will normally increase the treatment strength each microdermabrasion session to increase the penetration to the skin. Your skin may feel a little warm and appear a little pink immediately following your treatment, but this is very temporary. You should tell your Aesthetician immediately if your microdermabrasion treatment is too uncomfortable; they can adjust the settings if it is too strong for you.

Q: Can I combine a microdermabrasion with another procedure?

A: Yes. Microdermabrasion is the perfect complement to other procedures including our pampering facials.
