What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to renew your overall skin tone and texture by using an applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin. The purpose of this is to rejuvenate the skin.
We have used microdermabrasion NYC to help many clients with a variety of skin conditions including improving the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, melasma and acne scarring.
How Does Microdermabrasion NYC Work?
During your microdermabrasion appointment, our licensed aesthetician uses a handheld device by spraying fine crystals under pressure while vacuuming debris at the same time. This treatment improves acne scarring, sun damage, and other skin conditions without changing your skin’s integrity.
As your face is being rejuvenated, the treatment stimulates collagen growth in the skin. High levels of collagen will generate a softer, healthier and younger facial appearance. No anesthesia or numbing substance is needed for this treatment. There are two types of microdermabrasion: crystal microdermabrasion and diamond-tip microdermabrasion.

Crystal Microdermabrasion: With crystal microdermabrasion, a hand-piece projects crystals onto the skin surface which causes a gentle abrasion or polishing process. The dead skin cells are vacuumed off with the crystals immediately with the same handpiece. The different types of crystals that may be used include aluminum oxide and sodium bicarbonate.
Diamond-Tip Microdermabrasion NYC: With diamond-tip microdermabrasion, a diamond-tip handpiece gently exfoliates dead skin cells while suctioning them off immediately. This is treatment is used for more sensitive facial areas like close to the eyes and has the flexibility of using different suction levels. No chemicals are used in this procedure and it is pain-free.
FAQ of Microdermabrasion Treatment
How Quickly Can I See Results?
You can expect to see noticeable results right after your microdermabrasion NYC procedure. The number of sessions you will need will depend on how serious your skin condition is and your expectations. After we have an initial consultation, our aesthetician will recommend the number of treatments that are needed to get the results you desire.
Does Microdermabrasion hurt?
No, it doesn’t. The microdermabrasion machine uses a vacuum action so it feels a little bit like someone is covering your face. It’s a stream of non-allergenic crystals to remove your skin’s outermost layers of dead cells. The procedure should not be painful if performed properly by a trained and qualified technician. That’s why choosing a certified spa is very important.
