FAQ speciality facials:
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Our skin is made up of the dermis (inner layer) and the epidermis (outer layer). The outer layer of the skin contains our concerns, like wrinkles, dark spots or dull texture. Microdermabrasion exfoliates the outer layer of the skin to reduce these skin issues and give us a brighter-looking complexion.
The two types of microdermabrasion include crystal microdermabrasion and diamond microdermabrasion. Diamond microdermabrasion uses a device with a diamond-coated wand to exfoliate before suctioning away dead cells from the surface of the skin. Your skin is smoother, with fewer acne scars and reduced wrinkles. Let’s dive deeper into the benefits.
Benefits Of Microdermabrasion
This quick and painless resurfacing treatment exfoliates dead skin cells and stimulates blood flow and collagen growth. The increased blood flow carries more oxygen to the skin, creating a youthful-looking complexion. This treatment also helps to fade spots, fine lines and acne scars, with the effects lasting for a month. However, the results depend on your age and how well your skin reacts to the treatment.
Because microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment, there is no down-time needed for recovery. It’s considered very safe for the skin, face and body.
Addresses concerns such as:
Uneven skin texture
Who Should Not Get This Treatment?
Avoid microdermabrasion if your skin is irritated or you have active breakouts. If you had had recent invasive procedures or cosmetic injectable treatments, it’s best to avoid this treatment.
Aftercare Instructions after microdermabrasion:
Avoid waxing 48 hours before or seven days following a treatment.
No laser hair removal/IPL treatments can be performed on the face or treated area.
After the treatment, do not use sun beds or swim in heavily chlorinated water for at least two weeks.
After the procedure, refrain from using irritating facial products like alpha hydroxy acids, retinoid products or fragranced creams and lotions.
Avoid chemical peel treatments a few weeks before and after treatment.
Common side effects include slight swelling, redness or sunburn-like symptoms that may last a few days.
Please ensure to inform us of any concerns during our facial followup.

Facial Aftercare Instructions
Keep Skin Hydrated
Proper hydration is key to maximizing the benefits of your facial. When you are sufficiently hydrated, your skin cells function more effectively and are better able to eliminate toxins, absorb nutrients and help you retain your post-facial radiance. In addition to drinking plenty of water, increase your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables and apply a daily moisturizer to maintain your glow.
While we advise against exfoliating immediately after your facial (ouch!), we do recommend adding this step to your weekly skin care routine. Continuing to exfoliate at home, will keep your skin soft and smooth as well as prevent oil and dead skin from building up and dulling your complexion. Be delicate with your freshly buffed skin: Wait two to three days before exfoliating and choose a gentle scrub like Eminence Organics Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant, Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant or VitaSkin Exfoliating Peels.
Use A Vitamin C Serum
Environmental stressors pose the greatest threat to your fresh complexion. Extreme temperatures and air pollution can suck the life out of your skin, contributing to dullness, dehydration and the development of fine lines and wrinkles. To protect the effects of your facial, Eminence Organics Citrus Kale C + E Serum not only brightens dull skin and boosts collagen production, it also battles wrinkles and fights damaging free radicals leaving your skin balanced, toned and radiant.
Follow Your Esthetician’s Advice
A quality home care routine is essential for boosting the life of your facial. Work with your esthetician to develop a skin care routine that is customized for your specific skin type, concerns and skin care goals. Following their expert advice can do wonders for maintaining your skin’s health between spa appointments.
Book Your Next Appointment
The best skin care routines pair at-home products with in-spa treatments. Professional treatments provide the extra care and expertise needed to enhance your everyday routine. Together, at-home and in-spa treatments set your skin up for optimal health and vitality. Ideally, your facial should be booked between four and six weeks apart to take advantage of the skin’s natural turnover cycle. At minimum, we suggest quarterly treatments to maintain your skin’s health and address its specific needs as the seasons change.
Do Not Visit The Steam Room
Your skin has already been exposed to plenty of steam during your facial, and adding on could lead to irritation and broken capillaries. Hitting the gym is another no-go: Increased heat and sweat can also irritate your freshly exfoliated skin, causing redness and inflammation.
Do Not Wax, Shave Or Have Laser Hair Removal
Most facials involve deep exfoliation with professional peels to shed old skin cells and bring new cells to the surface. Having a hair removal treatment immediately after your facial runs the risk of over-exfoliating and burning your fresh complexion. To avoid discomfort and damage, we advise spacing your hair removal appointments between 24 and 48 hours before or after your facial treatment.
Do Not Sunbathe
Your freshly scrubbed skin is particularly susceptible to sun damage post-treatment and its vulnerable surface can easily burn. Moreover, exposing your skin to the sun puts you at risk for melanoma and accelerates the development of fine lines and wrinkles. After a facial, we always apply a Sun Defense Mineral Powder or a moisturizer with SPF 30 or higher to minimize potential damage.
Do Not Pick At Your Skin
Every time you squeeze or touch a blemish, you run the risk of spreading bacteria and scarring your complexion. During your facial, your esthetician will have performed necessary extractions to clear blackheads and pustules. If any blemishes are left behind, it is because they are not close enough to the surface to extract safely. Further picking and prodding will only do damage; your best course of action is to leave them be and book a follow-up appointment with your facialist for further extractions.
Do Not Use At-Home Peels Or Retinol
Give your skin a week to heal before using potent at-home treatments like peels and retinol-based products. Your skin is particularly sensitive after a facial, and harsh, potentially irritating products can do more damage than good. Rest assured that your esthetician has exfoliated your skin to the max, instead, focus on protecting your skin’s moisture barrier with nourishing facial oils, rich moisturizers and deeply hydrating mask treatments. Our Pick: Blend Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil with Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer for long-lasting moisture.
