As dead skin cells build up on the surface of your skin and your pores become clogged, your skin starts to look dull, rough, and uneven with more fine lines and deeper wrinkles, blackheads, and discoloration that can make you look older than your years.

And while you can exfoliate at home to remove a small portion of those dead skin cells, at home options simply aren’t powerful enough to reverse that buildup and deliver the results you deserve.

That’s why at Infini Cosmetic Associates, our team of cosmetic specialists offer Microdermabrasion, which works powerfully enough to whisk away the outer layers of your skin and reveal a smooth, healthy, youthful complexion, yet gently enough to require zero downtime.

So that you can decide if the treatment is right for you, we’re answering the most common questions we hear on Microdermabrasion, including what it is and how it works, as well as the vibrantly beautiful results you can expect to see when you look in the mirror.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion uses a small, hand-held device that delivers abrasive micro crystals directly to your skin and then immediately suctions them back off. In this way, the treatment gently sands dull, uneven, aging skin. The crystals work to remove the outer layers, consisting of dead skin cells, while deeply cleansing your pores.

The process renews your skin, revealing the fresh, vital, youthful cells that have been hiding beneath the dead outer layer in order to:

  • Diminish fine lines
  • Even skin tone and improve discoloration
  • Reduce the appearance of scars, acne marks, and age spots
  • Smooth skin’s texture
  • Banish blackheads
  • Refine pores
  • Gently, yet thoroughly, exfoliate the skin

How does Microdermabrasion work?

Microdermabrasion is painless. It requires no preparation or anesthetic of any kind as well as no downtime. This means that the treatment can even be done on your lunch break.

Your cosmetic specialist will first cleanse and tone your skin. Next, the esthetician will pass the wand with its stream of aluminum oxide crystals over the surface of your face. As each section of your face is treated, the wands vacuum picks up the crystals, as well as excess oils on your skin, to unclog your pores.


The crystal flow is adjustable to alter the depth of the treatment based on your skin and comfort level, and multiple passes across your skin can be made to help you achieve the results you’re looking for.

Your skin immediately looks renewed and refreshed and a brighter, smoother, more radiant complexion emerges. For optimum results, you can schedule a series of treatments based on your skin’s condition and your personal goals.

Who is a good candidate for Microdermabrasion?

Since Microdermabrasion is 100% non-invasive, with no downtime, anyone who wants to see brighter, healthier, youthfully refreshed skin every time they look in the mirror can use the treatment to reach their skincare goals.

While you may experience mild redness or discomfort following Microdermabrasion – similar to that of a sunburn – you are able to immediately return to your normal activities.
