How Often Should I Have a Microdermabrasion Treatment

How Often Should I Have a Microdermabrasion Treatment

We are often asked ‘How often should I have a microdermabrasion treatment’ and it all depends on what results you are trying to achieve. We explain more below.

One-off Facial

One Microdermabrasion treatment on its own will exfoliate and remove dead skin cells to reveal a clean, bright complexion. It will unblock pores and help to remove blemishes, blackheads and dry skin. You’ll definitely see the difference and you’ll probably want more!

Microdermabrasion is a progressive treatment which means you will see improvements with each treatment you have. If you decide you love the treatment (we’re sure you will) then there are a few options to consider:

Course of Facials

We most definitely recommend that you plump for a course of facials. If your skin is in pretty good condition already a mini-course of 3 might be enough for you to get rid of all your blackheads and improve the texture and tone of your skin. If your skin needs a bit of work and you have skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, or mild outbreaks of spots then a course of 6 might be better. Ideally, treatments should be carried out every 7-10 days. This will allow your therapist to work deeper on the skin with each treatment; but safely and effectively without injury to the skin.

Treating Skin Issues

If you are suffering from acne or have acne scarring you might need even more than a course of 6 to see great results. Remember, microdermabrasion is a progressive treatment so if you are continuing to see improvements, persevere! Acne and acne scarring may require much more than 6 treatments for the best results.

Monthly Maintenance

After a course of treatment, you will need to maintain the results and keep your skin in tip-top condition. Skin renews itself about every 4 weeks so we recommend a monthly maintenance treatment to ensure the old skin is exfoliated to maintain a glowing complexion. Microdermabrasion also helps the absorption of skincare products into the skin, so your at home skin care routine is more effective.
