Microdermabrasion background information

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive “skin rejuvenating” technique employed to help improve the texture and appearance of the skin.

Microdermabrasion is one of the category of treatments such as botulinum toxin (Botox®), dermal fillers and superficial chemical peels where the treatment session is short, with few side effects and virtually no time off work. They also do not require any surgery.

Microdermabrasion was discovered in the U.S.A. and in 2017 nearly 107,000 treatments were performed in America, a decrease of 40.0% on 2016 figures. These statistics come from the American Society For Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), and they make microdermabrasion the seventh most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in that country. ASAPS decided not to gather data for microdermabrasion in 2018.

Various types of microdermabrasion machines have started to be used in the U.K. in the last couple of years, with many becoming available in beauty salons.

If you are considering microdermabrasion, the following information will give you a basic understanding of the procedure. It can't answer all your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient and the practitioner. Please ask a practitioner about anything you don't understand.

What is microdermabrasion and how does it work?

Microdermabrasion involves a stream of fine micro particles being blasted across the face by a kind of “skin vacuum cleaner”. The powder used varies between different machines and can include crystals of aluminium salts, sodium bicarbonate crystals, or even sodium chloride (table salt) crystals.

Movement of these crystals under pressure loosens and partially removes the outermost epidermal layer of the skin (see diagram below) in a kind of “sandpapering” effect. Alternatively some systems use “diamond microdermabrasion” where the treatment tip contains tiny diamonds that abrade the skin. It helps improve the appearance of the skin and the circulation and generally gives the skin a healthy glow. Once the outer layer of skin has been removed, the layers of skin beneath then increase their production of new skin cells to renew the surface layer.

Microdermabrasion Action Skin Section

What skin problems can microdermabrasion treat?

Microdermabrasion is a mild treatment causing minimal damage to the surface of the skin. Results are subtle and include a freshening in the appearance and improvement in the texture of the skin, and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles.

Some stretch marks respond well to this treatment and some people can experience a reduction in the appearance of brown age spots on their skin.

This procedure is sometimes used in combination with chemical peels or some skin creams.

Microdermabrasion is not suitable for deeper wrinkles and scars, deep hyperpigmentation problems (areas of darker pigment) or broken veins in the skin.

What happens during a microdermabrasion treatment?

Your first discussion with a practitioner should clearly set out your expectations and what the practitioner thinks will happen to your skin as a result of microdermabrasion. A medical history should be taken, to ensure that there are no reasons why you shouldn’t have the treatment, and you would normally be asked to sign a consent form at this time which means that you have understood the potential benefits and risks associated with microdermabrasion.

Photographs may also be taken by the practitioner, as a “before and after” comparison at a later date.
 

If you have a history of herpes simplex infections (cold sores), an anti-viral drug may be prescribed as a precaution for the course of the treatment.

The skin is usually cleaned prior to treatment, and you will be provided with goggles to protect your eyes from any stray crystals as the wand of the microdermabrasion machine is passed over the skin in smooth, stroking movements. The intensity (or pressure at which the crystals hit your skin) of treatment can be varied, either by altering the amount of crystals used, the pressure used, or the length of treatment.

Crystals are directed onto the face and then immediately “vacuumed “ away, along with the loosened skin particles. All the waste goes into a separate, closed container to make sure that there is no risk of contamination from dead skin products.

The crystals are not re-used.

Follow-up treatment

This procedure can be repeated every week or so for a series of 5 to 10 sessions. Maintenance treatments can then be scheduled every three or four months.

How long will it take to recover from microdermabrasion?

Treatment usually takes around 10 – 30 minutes, but stretch marks can take as long as 2 hours to treat.
 
Most patients find that they can return to work immediately after treatment.

What are the risks and potential complications from microdermabrasion treatment?

The treatment is usually painless and doesn’t irritate the skin greatly. All patients will experience some tightness and redness of the skin, which may last for an hour or two following treatment.

On occasions, redness or streaking of the skin may continue for a day or so and sensitive skin around the eyes can become swollen, but cold compresses will help to get rid of this side effect.

Deeper treatments aimed at scar tissue or stretch marks may produce some spotting of blood, with healing taking around 3 - 4 days.

There is a very small risk of mild pigment changes to the skin that generally clear up within a month, and the risk of any scarring is very rare with this procedure.

What should you do after a microdermabrasion treatment?

Use a bland moisturiser to help hydrate the skin, and liberal amounts of sunscreen to protect it from the sun.

Deeper treatments for scars and stretch marks may require the use of antibiotic ointment for a few days whilst the skin heals.

Contact your practitioner if you notice any signs of infection or pigment changes.
 

Who should not have a microdermabrasion treatment?

This treatment is generally suitable for all skin types.

Patients not suitable are those who have any active skin infections (such as cold sores); a history of problems with skin healing; or those who have taken isotretinoin within the last 6-12 months.

Who can perform microdermabrasion?

There are some very mild microdermabrasion machines which can be found in beauty salons and which can be used by trained beauticians.

There are also some more aggressive machines that can have a deeper effect on the skin that are designed for nurses’ or doctors’ use only.

What is the average cost of microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion treatments can be in the £40 - £70 range for a 30 minute treatment session.

Multiple treatment sessions are usually offered at a discount.

Summary of advice for microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a quick and safe treatment which doesn’t involve any surgery.

Its results are not permanent, but it makes your skin look younger and fresher, with a more uniform complexion. It can stimulate circulation in the face, as well as causing new skin cells to grow more rapidly.

Microdermabrasion can be also be an effective option for improving the appearance of stretch marks and some other scars on the skin.

Similar results can be obtained using mild chemical peels to remove the outermost layer of the skin to stimulate new skin cell growth or hydradermabrasion which is a newer, but similar, alternative to microdermabrasion that is promoted as a more comfortable form of mild skin resurfacing and is available in some UK clinics.
