What is Microdermabrasion?
When you run your hands over your face, does your complexion feel smooth or rough? If rough, your skin may be clogged with dead skin cells. This can make your complexion look dull and uneven. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang performs microdermabrasion to help rejuvenate the skin. Effective and fast, microdermabrasion removes the top layer of skin so your complexion looks brighter and healthier. For enhanced results, we can perform this procedure alone or with other treatments, like a chemical peel or dermal filler. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will develop a unique treatment plan for your specific skin concerns and cosmetic goals.

Is Microdermabrasion For You?
Microdermabrasion sessions can improve the appearance of your skin and reduce fine lines, uneven texture, dull skin tone, clogged pores, scars, and sun damage. This treatment is safe and effective for men and women of every skin type and tone. Generally, we perform microdermabrasion on the face, but it also works well for your hands, neck, and chest. If you have an open wound or a chronic skin condition, like acne or rosacea, this procedure is not recommended. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will assess your complexion and determine if this procedure works best for you.
Our Microdermabrasion Technique
Right after your consultation, we can usually perform your microdermabrasion treatment during the same appointment. In one of our private treatment rooms, patients can relax in a comfortable procedure chair. Next, the handpiece is moved evenly across your skin as it polishes and vacuums the debris. We will be extra careful near your eyes because this area is extremely sensitive. Although the treatment feels unusual, it should not be painful. Because of this, you shouldn't need a local anesthetic or numbing cream. Once the procedure is over, we will clean your skin to remove any residual debris and apply a personalized moisturizer with SPF.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you may continue your daily activities. It is critical to wear sun protection because your skin is susceptible to UV damage. Patients love how their complexion looks and feels after the treatment. Generally, your face feels softer and looks brighter. To maintain your results, Dr. Mang recommends scheduling appointments every 4 – 6 weeks. After microdermabrasion treatments, many patients notice that their home skin care products, especially lotions and creams, absorb more easily into the skin.
How much does microdermabrasion cost?
The price for microdermabrasion treatments will be discussed in your first appointment with a skin care professional. After you discuss your wants and they assess your skin, your personal treatment plan can be made. Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery has specials on treatments like microdermabrasion and discounted packages if you buy several sessions.
Should I get microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel?
Depending on your complexion and aesthetic goals, a skin care professional will help you understand if microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel is the right procedure. In general, microdermabrasion clears away the outer layer of dead and damaged skin cells to make your complexion look smoother and healthier. You can get these same results from a light chemical peel. A stronger chemical peel or dermabrasion is better if your skin problems are in the deeper layers. Recovery time might also help you decide which treatment you want since microdermabrasion causes minimal downtime.
How often should I get microdermabrasion treatments?
Initially, you should get anywhere from 5 – 12 microdermabrasion treatments every 2 – 4 weeks to see your best results. After that, you should schedule appointments every 4 – 8 weeks to maintain your skin's health. During your consultation, your technician can develop a treatment plan with suggestions specific to your needs that plan out when you should schedule appointments for microdermabrasion.
How should I care for my skin after a microdermabrasion treatment?
Following your microdermabrasion, you should avoid your activity for at least 24 hours to allow your skin time to rest. You need to avoid UV rays (tanning beds and natural sunlight) and shield your complexion with sunscreen. To minimize redness and swelling after the treatment, Dr. Mang may suggest a moisturizer or cold compresses.
Can I combine microdermabrasion with other treatments?
Since microdermabrasion is a surface skin treatment, you may consider combining it with other procedures. You may combine microdermabrasion along with a facial or an injectable wrinkle treatment, like BOTOX®. You should be open about your aesthetic issues in your initial consultation so your technician can develop a treatment plan that meets all your goals.
