Does Microdermabrasion Come With Any Downtime?

You will find many skin rejuvenation treatments on offer at Rejuve Med-Spa. As the name suggests, these treatments are designed to breathe new life into your skin and replenish it. Amongst our many offerings, microdermabrasion stands as one of the most highly requested. It’s a unique procedure that requires no surgery, meaning the downtime is far less than other cosmetic facial treatments. 

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is primarily used to exfoliate your skin. Unlike the various exfoliation products available for home use, this method actually yields impressive results. It begins by using a unique instrument called the DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing System. Essentially, this is a want with diamond chips in the tip, and it passes over your face. The chips will clear away any impurities from the top layer of your skin, leaving a fresh new layer underneath. 

It’s called skin resurfacing as you’re literally getting rid of the dull layer at the top. This is full of dead skin cells, dirt, and many other imperfections. The entire treatment is done without any surgery or incisions – and you don’t need anesthetic either. 

Is There Recovery Time?

The nature of this non-invasive treatment means there is hardly any recovery time to worry about. No surgery is performed, so there are no incisions that need to heal. Some people are happy to walk out of our clinic and get on with the rest of their day. However, you may opt to take the day off work as your skin does appear red and irritated. It can sting slightly, but most candidates don’t suffer from any pain afterward. 

Effectively, the downtime is mainly social. If you’re comfortable getting on with your life, then nothing is stopping you. At most, you will need the rest of the day off work, then you can go back to normal the day after. 

Microdermabrasion Benefits

Microdermabrasion has many benefits for the overall health and appearance of your skin. It’s proven to help with both skin tone and texture:

  • Smooth skin – A key benefit of microdermabrasion is that it leaves your skin feeling very smooth. This is because you’ve basically removed the rough outer layer and revealed new skin beneath. If you suffer from wrinkles or fine lines, this is a brilliant treatment to consider. 
  • Brighter, more vibrant skin – Similarly, microdermabrasion can remove dull areas of your skin to make it look brighter and clearer. Furthermore, it triggers circulation and collagen production, further improving your skin tone and health. It’s excellent at treating things like acne scars and stretch marks! 
  • Alongside this, microdermabrasion is shown to reduce pore size. In turn, this leads to a reduction in acne outbreaks and blackheads in the future.

I am currently undergoing a series of laser treatments with Kinsey and I couldn’t be more pleased. She is professional and always sets me at ease. I highly recommend Rejuve.
