Ask Cheryl - About Microdermabrasion for Oily Skin

Posted on Apr 11, 2012 12:34:00 PM

Q:  Is Microdermabrasion a Good Treatment for Oily Skin?

A: Microdermabrasion is a great procedure to keep oily skin healthy, to keep the pores clean and help prevent breakout or pimples.

During the microdermabrasion treatment, a stream of very fine mineral crystals is moved across the skin’s surface to buff away or “exfoliate” the outermost layer of dead skin cells. [You can schedule a complimentary consultation a any one of SkinHealth Centers three boston area locations to find out for yourself how this exciting skin rejuvenation treatment is.]


Left untreated, these dead skin cells will clog pores, especially with oily skin, which leads to pimples or blackheads.  There is also suction on the microdermabrasion hand piece, which simultaneously vacuums away the exfoliated cells as well as excess oil from the skin.  The gentle vacuum pressure also cleans out your pores, whiteheads and blackheads.


While an excellent procedure for oily skin, microdermabrasion is also an excellent treatment for sun-damaged skin, dry or flaky skin, rough skin texture and uneven skin tone.  It provides a good exfoliation, which will give your skin a nice glow, reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles and will stimulate new collagen production. 


Immediately after the first treatment you will see a difference – your skin will have a fresh glow and feel smoother and softer.  Each procedure lasts approximately thirty minutes and your skin will be clean, refreshed and healthy-looking.
