Learning About Microdermabrasion

Learning About Microdermabrasion

Whether it’s waxing, hair removal or some other area, skin quality is one of the primary goals of the salon experience. At Red Stella Salon, we offer a wide variety of modern, affordable skin care options for all our clients.

One of our lesser-known services, but one that’s incredibly beneficial for many people? Microdermabrasion. This is a non-chemical, non-invasive treatment which removes upper layers of skin through a special exfoliation process and helps leave your skin smooth and light. Let’s find out some of the basic benefits of microdermabrasion.

Meant for All Skin Types

Microdermabrasion is excellent for younger people simply looking for a better skin tone, but it’s also perfect for cosmetic problems generally aligned with aging skin. Things like sun damage and age spots can be removed easily.

For people with oily skin or acne, it can also be very effective. Microdermabrasion is good against blemishes, and while multiple sessions are generally recommended for the best overall results, a single session can be used just before a special occasion.


There’s no pain associated with microdermabrasion, and no discomfort at all outside a very mild scratching or stinging – but this will feel similar to a deep massage in most cases, nothing worse. There isn’t any anesthesia involved, and the only possible side effects include very brief swelling or pink skin in some cases. If you’re going to be in the sun a lot following microdermabrasion, you may be given a sun protection plan.

Quick and Easy

The microdermabrasion process is quick and simple. It usually takes under an hour – about a half hour to treat the face, and even less for the neck. As we noted above, many people choose multiple sessions to receive maximum benefits.

Safe and Effective

Beyond the fact that it’s painless, microdermabrasion’s safety in the hands of our skilled technicians is vital. Risk of complication or any kind of infection is virtually nonexistent.

In addition, the effectiveness is a major draw. There isn’t really such thing as microdermabrasion that “doesn’t work” – it takes a different number of sessions for different people, but results are almost completely consistent within each individual care area people are using the treatment for.
