HOW OFTEN CAN I HAVE MICRODERMABRASION?
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:
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.
- Week 1: first session
- Week 2: second session
- Week 3: third session
- Monthly: fourth through twelfth sessions
WHAT AGES ARE APPROPRIATE FOR MICRODERMABRASION?
While there are no specific age or sex restrictions, typically children over age 12 up to adults age 65 can get microdermabrasion. While there is no age maximum, mature skin over age 70 may have slightly higher risks of bruising and skin abrasions. Individuals YOUNGER than age 12 may sometimes also receive treatment under the care of a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

For Microdermabrasion down time will be 2-3 days, home care will includes extra daily hydration and visor or SPF when you are out during the day, Jessner PCA Peel down time will be 5-10 days, home care using the PCA Post Kit and a fallow up by a Microdermabrsion treatment.
