How often can I have microdermabrasion? by Medical Author:

Posted by Reinvent & Restore on November 15, 2013 at 2:00 PM


Microdermabrasion can be done as frequently as weekly or up to every eight weeks depending on your skin's tolerance and desired cosmetic effects. Many people choose to start with weekly treatments for three sessions, then change to a monthly maintenance regimen.

Typical microderm schedule:

Week 1: first session

Week 2: second session

Week 3: third session

Monthly: fourth through twelfth sessions


Much like brushing your teeth, microdermabrasion helps to gently remove plaque and skin debris. Since human skin typically regenerates at approximately 30-day intervals, skin improvement with microdermabrasion is temporary and needs to be repeated at average intervals of two to four weeks for continued improvement. Usually, multiple treatments (six to 12 sessions) are recommended to see a significant improvement.

What does the vacuum do in microdermabrasion?

The vacuum part of microdermabrasion has four basic roles:

It gently pulls and lifts a small section of skin for micro abrasion.


It focally stimulates blood circulation and creates mild swelling in the skin.


What should people expect before, during, and after microdermabrasion?


Mild pinkness of the skin is the desired outcome and usually resolves within minutes to hours after microdermabrasion. In addition, mild exfoliation of skin may occur as well. Continuously apply moisturizer or ointment if exfoliation occurs. Patients may also experience mild sunburn-like sensation for a few days. Moreover, liberal application of sunscreen is recommended as photosensitivity may be increased after treatment.


Microdermabrasion may help stimulate the production of collagen, thereby helping skin rejuvenation. As age spots from photoaging and fine lines are diminished, the skin may become softer and smoother.
