Microdermabrasion Q&A

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is one of several exfoliative skin procedure options available for most skin types at Health and MedSpa. The team uses the advanced Vortex Peel microdermabrasion machine to rapidly exfoliate your skin. 

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead and dying skin cells, and their resulting complexion imperfections, from your skin’s surface.

Vortex Peel microdermabrasion improves your skin’s health and appearance significantly but without the discomfort or downtime that you might find with other treatments in its class. While you might experience some slight redness immediately after the procedure, it quickly fades and you’re left with smoothness and a healthy glow. 

What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion with Vortex Peel has several major benefits that, when combined in this treatment, refresh and revitalize your skin. Vortex Peel involves:


The main mechanism of the Vortex Peel is to slough off the most damaged surface-level skin cells. This is a healthier way of exfoliating your skin than abrasive home products, which can cause more damage than they resolve.


After exfoliation, your skin has fewer barriers between its pores and the moisturizing products that you apply. Once you remove the extra dirt, oil, dead cells, and product accumulation, your moisturizers can do their job of keeping your skin hydrated. 


Microdermabrasion encourages your skin and deeper tissues to continually produce new collagen and elastin fibers, boosting its vitality after these processes slow with age. 


Microdermabrasion helps repair skin damages like scars, sun damage, wrinkles, and stretch marks. While nothing can reset your skin entirely, microdermabrasion makes repairs where other treatments and products fall short. 

How should I care for my skin after microdermabrasion?

The Health and MedSpa team guides you in the right direction for beneficial skin care after your microdermabrasion procedure. They can help you build a brand-new skin care routine or improve upon one you already use. 

Plus, they give you helpful tips for maintaining the results of your treatment and making sure you don’t damage your skin shortly after. These tips include:

  • Using daily sunscreen
  • Avoiding tanning beds and direct ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun
  • Avoiding heavy makeup temporarily
  • Temporarily stopping the use of heavy anti-aging products, like retinol
  • Regularly applying moisturizer

You might also consider other gentle skin care treatments at Health and MedSpa, like a HydraFacial®. It’s safe for all skin types and won’t make your skin sensitive.
