Microdermabrasion Treatments for Soft, Smooth, Beautiful Skin

You may have heard of microdermabrasion. Its popularity is well-deserved, as this amazing, science-backed skin treatment helps give you the smooth, gorgeous skin you’ve always wanted. Our students at Summit Salon Academy Kansas City deliver safe, professional microdermabrasion services to you at a reasonable price.

Microdermabrasion uses a special tool for the esthetician to gently break up dead skin cells that can make up the outer layer of your skin, removing that layer and leaving behind a silky-smooth surface. It’s a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure that requires no anesthetic and little to no downtime.

Estheticians use microdermabrasion to create a smooth, even surface and tone and to help minimize the appearance of a number of skin conditions, from fine lines and wrinkles to acne scars and sun damage.

Microdermabrasion is a highly effective exfoliating process that rids skin of dead skin cells and pollutants that can make your skin look dull and tired. In the process, it stimulates new skin cells and collagen production, which helps fill in the gaps that cause fine lines and scars. As we age, those rejuvenation processes slow down, as early as our 20s, and gradually our skin becomes less soft and supple and begins to develop lines and wrinkles.

In the case of acne scars and other uneven surfaces, these are caused when skin is damaged from acne breakouts or other tissue damage like cuts and abrasions, for which your skin can’t replenish the damaged skin fast enough. Jump-starting the cell and collagen renewal process helps your skin fill in these gaps so the surface is smooth and even.

For hyperpigmentation, brown spots, and other sun damage, stimulating the rejuvenation process through microdermabrasion helps your skin create a new surface with healthy cells that make the skin tone more evenly distributed.

Microdermabrasion helps treat:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars and other scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large, oversized pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Brown spots and sun damage
  • Blotchy redness

Will microdermabrasion work for me?
Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin tones and types. Our estheticians will assess your individual skincare needs to determine whether microdermabrasion is the right choice for your professional skincare regimen.

What do I need to do to prepare for a microdermabrasion treatment?
There is little preparation needed for a microdermabrasion treatment. You may need to avoid excess sun exposure, facial waxing, and some skincare creams about a week before your appointment. Be sure to tell our estheticians about any cosmetic surgeries or other procedures you’ve had done in the past before your appointment.

What’s it like to have a microdermabrasion treatment?
Microdermabrasion is not painful. Some very sensitive clients experience slight discomfort during the procedure, and there is some skin tightness, but not discomfort, after the treatment. Microdermabrasion treatments take about a half hour, but that may vary based on your individual skincare needs.

What happens after my microdermabrasion treatment?
There is little to no downtime, although you may experience some redness for 30 minutes to a few hours after the treatment, so if this is your first microdermabrasion treatment, plan your schedule to have some time off to relax. If your skin is pinker than normal, avoid makeup for the next day, but do continue to use moisturizer and sun protection after the treatment. Our estheticians will help you find the right products to use to keep your microdermabrasion results looking and feeling gorgeous.

How often should I have microdermabrasion treatments?
Your skincare plan will vary depending on your individual needs, but most people need a few weekly treatments at first, followed by some monthly maintenance treatments. Our estheticians will create a treatment plan that gives you the best results for your skin.
