Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peel FAQ

1) Does Microdermabrasion hurt?

Microdermabrasion isn’t as “feel good” as a facial but it doesn’t hurt. Most people love the feeling of getting the dead cells off of their faces and having their skin feel clean.

2) Is there any downtime?

You can go right back to work afterwards. You will be a little pink and have a healthy glow!

3) What does ‘no crystals’ mean?

All of the early microdermabrasion machines use either salt or aluminum crystals to debride the skin. Our wand has diamond chips built into the wand, which don’t leave the wand, so no particles are left in the eyes, hair or ears! The NewApeel uses no loose particles. This is the newest, cleanest technology – the next generation of Microdermabrasion machines.

4) How long does it take?

Microdermabrasion takes either 30 or 60 minutes. Your esthetician will look at your face under a magnifying lighted lamp to evaluate your skin and will suggest the right treatment for you.
