Microdermabrasion is a skin revitalizing treatment used to help repair photodamage, scarring, acne, and fine lines and wrinkles. During the procedure, the dead outer layer of skin cells is removed, revealing the fresh, vibrant cells beneath.

What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive treatment that uses mild abrasion and suction to remove the dead outer layer of skin. Unlike dermabrasion, which penetrates much deeper into the skin to treat pockmarks and more severe skin demarcations, microdermabrasion is ideal for treating mild scars, pigmentation issues, fine lines, and leaving skin with a fresh, healthy-looking glow.
Does Microdermabrasion hurt?
Lipstick Empire LaserSpa uses a Diamond Tip wand during the procedure, which offers a very comfortable sensation. The feeling of microdermabrasion can be likened to using a facial scrub, with mild abrasion and light pressure on the skin.
How many Microdermabrasion treatments will I need?
We recommend a series of 3 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart—or 4 times a year at the change of seasons. Microdermabrasion pairs nicely with other treatments and can be used to enhance results, as microdermabrasion encourages the products that follow to penetrate deeper into the skin.
When will I see results?
Lipstick Empire’s microdermabrasion treatment is gentle, requiring no downtime and offering instant results. Immediately following the procedure you will notice a more radiant glow, with improvements in the evenness of skin tone and texture. Skin may be slightly pink after the treatment, but you will be able to resume regular skin care and makeup application immediately.
Is Microdermabrasion good for your skin?
Absolutely. Microdermabrasion exfoliates the epidermis, encouraging skin cells to regenerate, and increasing circulation to the treatment area. Microdermabrasion helps minimize mild scarring and pigmentation issues while improving the effectiveness of your skincare regime by allowing serums and moisturizers to penetrate deeper into the skin.
What are the side effects of Microdermabrasion?
Lipstick Empire LaserSpa’s gentle microdermabrasion treatment has few side effects, including potential sensitivity to the sun following treatment, and light pinkness in the skin for up to 24 hours.
