Microdermabrasion FAQs

What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?

By abrading away dead skin cells that make your skin appear dull, dry and flaky, microdermabrasion restores the youthful glow of healthy skin. The process also has the effect of stimulating production of collagen — nature’s fountain-of-youth protein that adds strength and suppleness to skin. After a single treatment you will notice improved tone and texture — a fresh, rejuvenated look that pares years from your appearance. The mild friction generated by the Hydra-Diamond treatment also smooths fine lines, minor scars, and areas of uneven pigmentation, while improving the look and function of pores.

Why does Dr. Hazen recommend Hydra-Diamond microdermabrasion?

Over the years there have been several types of microdermabrasion offered by plastic surgeons and spas. Diamond-tip technology is the most advanced form of microdermabrasion, which uses an instrument with a high-grade diamond head that moves in a circular motion as a vacuum sucks away dead skin cells. Unlike crystal microdermabrasion, there are no tiny particles that can become embedded in pores. It is also easy for your doctor to sterilize the diamond-head after each procedure, ensuring a safe and hygienic experience. In addition, the diamond-head instrument allows a doctor or aesthetician greater precision and flexibility while rejuvenating your complexion, especially around the delicate eye area.

Which areas of the skin respond best to microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion can work wonders for age spots, sun spots and fine lines, but it is not a solution for eczema, dermatitis, rosacea and significant scarring. Microdermabrasion will brighten your complexion, shrink pores, smooth out the facial surface, fade discoloration, and reduce the appearance of some minor scars. It is especially effective at targeting crow’s feet and lines along the upper lip. For patients suffering from acne, microdermabrasion can clear away most blackheads, restore a normal flow of oil in pores, and promote healing of acne pustules.

How many sessions are recommended?

Most patients schedule a series of visits to achieve maximum benefit from microdermabrasion. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommends two sessions a month, coupled with some complementary home skin care treatments. Typically, the best results are seen after three to six months of bimonthly visits. The procedure itself is painless, with virtually no interruption of your daily routine.
