What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a gentle skin exfoliation treatment that is used to refresh and rejuvenate the skin. Microdermabrasion is performed with a handheld device that uses abrasive particles to remove skin cells from the outermost layer of skin. This device also has a vacuum component that cleans up debris as the skin is exfoliated. It is an ideal treatment for addressing mild to moderate skin concerns, including discoloration, signs of aging and acne scars.
What are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion offers many benefits as a gentle skin rejuvenation treatment. These benefits include:
- Comfortable, non-invasive treatment
- No downtime
- Enhanced skin tone and texture
How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost?
The cost of microdermabrasion treatments at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. As a cosmetic treatment, microdermabrasion is typically not covered by health insurance. This means you will be responsible for the full cost of your treatment. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and provide the exact costs associated with your treatment.
What is the Microdermabrasion Treatment Like?
The microdermabrasion treatment is comfortable and requires no anesthetic. To begin treatment, a handheld device will be passed over the treatment area to gently exfoliate the skin while the vacuum component removes debris. This creates a gentle sensation of suction and scratching. The device will be maneuvered around the skin until the full treatment area has been addressed, which typically takes less than an hour.

Is There Any Downtime After Microdermabrasion?
There is no downtime after microdermabrasion, although patients may experience mild redness or sensitivity in the treatment area. These side effects typically resolve within a few hours, and patients are generally able to resume normal activities immediately after their visit. However, some patients choose to take a day or two off of social activities while the skin heals.
What Results Can I Expect from Microdermabrasion?
Patients will notice smoother skin immediately after microdermabrasion treatments, but it can take a series of treatments before patients notice significant cosmetic results. We often recommend that patients receive regular treatments on anywhere from a weekly to monthly basis. Over time, with continued treatments, patients will notice gradual improvements in skin tone and texture, as well as a reduction in skin imperfections.
