Microdermabrasion is a highly popular treatment performed by our team at Manhattan Aesthetics. It’s suitable for treating a range of common skin conditions, making it a very effective skin rejuvenation option. As with all of our treatments, we get frequently asked questions from people who are keen to book an appointment. With microdermabrasion, the most common question we get is how often should one get this treatment?

Firstly, it’s important to understand the process of microdermabrasion and how it works. You’ll be pleased to know this is a non-surgical procedure with minimal side effects and hardly any discomfort. The premise behind the treatment is that we remove the upper layers of dead skin from your face. In doing so, this reveals the fresh new skin beneath, instantly giving you a more vibrant and rejuvenated complexion.
To complete this procedure, our office uses a special diamond-tipped handpiece that peels away the dead skin. No lasers are involved, no injections are required – we lightly move the handpiece over your skin to get rid of all the dead skin.
A microdermabrasion treatment will typically last anywhere between 30-60 minutes, depending on the individual. For some patients, this could be all they need to address their complexion issues. Most patients, however, will need to undergo more treatments to deal with more complex skin concerns. We tend to suggest around 3-6 sessions before you see your desired results. These sessions should be spaced 1-week apart to give your skin time to heal between procedures.
Following this initial block of treatment, you could also come back once a month for maintenance. This can be considered an average treatment schedule – but keep in mind that yours could look different to this!
There are plenty of benefits that come with microdermabrasion. For starters, it’s an excellent way to rejuvenate your skin and make it look and feel fresh. You get rid of dead skin cells, but the removal of this upper layer also boosts collagen production. In turn, this can make your skin look and feel a lot firmer and stronger. This may also see a reduction in wrinkles, while also reducing the appearance of acne scars and large pores.
Effectively, microdermabrasion is good at removing blemishes from your skin. This doesn’t just include acne scars and enlarged pores, but also things like stretch marks and fine lines. It also evens out the overall skin tone, and it achieves all of this with no surgery whatsoever.

Microdermabrasion is a fantastic option for anyone with mild-to-moderate skin complaints. More specifically, it’s an ideal procedure if you suffer from acne scarring, sun damage, or the signs of aging. It’s a minimally invasive technique with no surgery required, so it’s suitable for people that want to avoid any cosmetic surgery, yet still wish to see impressive results. Microdermabrasion also offers minimal downtime and no disruptions, making it perfect for busy professionals that want a treatment that won’t make you change your schedule.
