If you have ever had a microdermabrasion treatment you probably fell in love with the way your skin felt in the hours immediately afterward, and probably for at least a full day or so later. It might make you think, “So, why not do something like this every day?” While that sounds great, your skin would disagree.
Why not? Because the treatment is an exfoliating treatment; meaning it removes dead skin cells and impurities along the surface of the skin. Though that means it cues the skin to do some repair and generate healthier new cells, you just cannot put the skin through such a stripping treatment every single day, or even on a very regular basis.
Let’s spend time learning about the short and long-term benefits of microdermabrasion in order to help you learn just how often you will want to get it done.
Start with Skin Type
If you ask the experts, they tell you that the frequency of any microdermabrasion treatments has to be determined by the type of skin you have. For example, if you have acne prone skin, you will need to have treatments at a pace different from someone with normal skin.
Generally, experts say that a four to a six-week gap between treatments is a good rule of thumb. Skin typically “regenerates” at a pace of roughly every 30 days, or so. That means that all results of skin care treatments are temporary, but it also shows that you can improve skin just by pacing your treatments (including microdermabrasion) to that same schedule.
Essentially, it also means sitting down with a professional skin care expert to have them do an assessment of your skin type. This is because it is never a simple matter. You could be someone with sun damaged or aging skin, yet you might also have oily skin or sensitive skin. This would mean your treatments would differ greatly from someone without sun damage and with dry or normal skin.
Know the Potential Results
Of course, once you know your skin type, you can discuss the problems you feel you have with your skin and hear what the expert suggests. Microdermabrasion is commonly used because it can help with fine lines or wrinkles, even out skin tone (such as mild pigmentation issues), smooth the surface and give the skin a softer, healthier radiance. It can also be used on more than just the face, helping to improve skin on any part of the body.
You can also improve results with a combination of treatments done before or after microdermabrasion, and in the weeks between treatments.
