Microdermabrasion in Dubai

Microdermabrasion is a mildly abrasive aesthetic treatment to improve skin tone and texture. It uses gentle exfoliation, aiming to improve skin elasticity and address issues like fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and melasma. In the end, it promotes a youthful, rejuvenated skin appearance.

The microdermabrasion procedure typically involves spraying tiny crystals of aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate onto the skin using a specific handheld device. These particles perform a sand-blasting-like action to buff out the skin’s superficial layer, revealing a fresh surface.

Are You an Ideal Candidate for a Microdermabrasion Treatment?

Microdermabrasion in Dubai is considered suitable for all skin types and colors. You may consider this treatment if you have the following skin concerns:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Blackheads 
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven discoloration
  • Hyperpigmentation and age spots
  • Mild acne and acne scars
  • Dull complexion
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma

That said, you may need to wait before receiving this treatment if you have active keloids, severe acne, facial warts, or a recent herpes outbreak. You may discuss your candidacy for this treatment with a dermatologist.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

Microdermabrasion is an outpatient procedure that lasts 30-40 minutes, depending on the amount of work required on the skin. It works in two ways: 

  1. Removing the outermost skin layer through gentle exfoliation 
  2. Suctioning the dislodged debris to prevent it from clogging pores

During the treatment, a dermatologist moves a handheld device over the treatment area. The head of this device is equipped with a specialized nozzle that sprays tiny crystal-like particles onto the skin to rub away its outer layer. This helps reveal a fresh skin surface with improved tone and texture.

While performing its primary job, the microdermabrasion device deploys a vacuum to suction out dislodged skin cells and used crystals. The aim is to prevent the skin from getting contaminated with debris.

What you can expect from Microdermabrasion treatment?

Microdermabrasion can give your skin a radiant and healthy glow with a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is a gentle procedure that doesn’t lead to any bothersome side effects. At most, it may cause a temporary change of tone and some tightness that subsides in a day.

What You Should Do Before Treatment?

One of the best things about microdermabrasion is that it requires minimal preparation. All you have to do is:

  • Stop using Retin-A, Differin, Renova, and glycolic acid products at least three days before the treatment.
  • Avoid tanning treatments a week before the procedure.
  • Stop waxing three weeks before the procedure.

If you have any specific queries, be sure to ask your dermatologist.

What You Should Do After Treatment?

Effective post-treatment care will help you get the desired results from your microdermabrasion. You will likely need to:

  • Avoid hot showers, saunas, and strenuous physical activities for the first 24 hours.
  • Use gentle and nourishing skin care products.
  • Stay hydrated by increasing water intake.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure.

Microdermabrasion Cost in Dubai

On average, the cost of microdermabrasion in Dubai starts at 750 AED. The final price may, however, vary from person to person, depending on a number of factors like the amount of aesthetic correction needed and the number of treatment sessions.

What is the recovery time for microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion usually leads to minimal recovery. At most, the treated area will turn pinkish and there will be slight irritation for about 24 hours.

Is microdermabrasion painful?

Microdermabrasion usually causes mild discomfort at most. According to many recipients, its procedure can be compared to the lick of the cat’s tongue or a gritty facial massage. 

How long do microdermabrasion results last?

The microdermabrasion results usually last one month. However, the exact longevity of the outcome can vary from case to case, depending on the patient’s age and how well they respond to the treatment.

How often should you get microdermabrasion?

The frequency at which you can go for microdermabrasion treatments can vary based on multiple factors. However, dermatologists usually recommend their patients to get this treatment every two to four weeks.

Can microdermabrasion remove dark spots?

Yes, microdermabrasion can help remove dark spots in addition to addressing several other skin concerns.

What is the difference between microdermabrasion and dermabrasion?

Dermabrasion uses a high-speed rotary instrument that ‘sands’ the skin more aggressively and addresses more severe signs of aging than microdermabrasion. While microdermabrasion only removes dead cells from the skin’s outermost layer, dermabrasion goes deeper and interacts with the viable cells. For this reason, it may lead to an extended recovery and require extra downtime.

Which is better, chemical peel or microdermabrasion?

Both microdermabrasion and chemical peeling help address different aesthetic concerns.

Microdermabrasion only removes the outermost skin layer consisting of dead cells. It is usually an ideal option if you want subtle results without extensive recovery and downtime.

On the other hand, chemical peels penetrate the skin at varying depths, depending on the strength of the peeling solution being used, and may lead to extended recovery.

Additionally, chemical peels are usually costlier than microdermabrasion.
