What is Microdermabrasion?
When you run your hands over your face, does your complexion feel soft and smooth or rough? If rough, the outer skin layer may be clogged with dead skin cells that can make your complexion dull and uneven. At Starwood Med Spa in Frisco, TX, our team performs medical spa services like noninvasive skin resurfacing using microdermabrasion. Quick and effective, microdermabrasion removes the outer layer of dead and damaged skin — so your complexion is healthier and brighter. This procedure may be used alone or along with another procedure, like a chemical peel or dermal filler, for greater improvements. During your consultation, we will develop a unique treatment plan to fit your specific skin concerns and complexion goals.

How is Microdermabrasion Performed?
Microdermabrasion is performed in our office following a consultation to determine what procedures will give you the best results. During the treatment, you will be asked to lie back in a comfortable chair as your face is cleaned and prepared. The handpiece will pass over your skin as the tool both exfoliates and sucks up the crystals and dead skin. Although the process feels unusual, it should not be painful — so you wouldn't need a numbing cream or local anesthesia. Microdermabrasion will be applied evenly in the needed areas, with more care and sensitivity on the delicate skin around the eyes. After the process is complete, the skin will be cleaned to remove any residual debris before a moisturizer, chosen for your skin type with UV protection, is applied.
How much does microdermabrasion cost?
The price for microdermabrasion will be discussed in your first appointment with a skincare technician. Once you explain your wants and he/she assesses your complexion, your custom microdermabrasion treatment plan will be created. Starwood Med Spa often has specials on skin treatments like microdermabrasion plus discounts if you buy a package with several sessions.
Should I get microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel?
Based on your skin and aesthetic goals, a skincare professional will help you decide if microdermabrasion, a chemical peel, or dermabrasion is the best procedure. In general, microdermabrasion is a good way to clear away the surface layer of dead and damaged skin cells— so your complexion is smooth and healthier. A light chemical peel produces similar results to microdermabrasion. Dermabrasion or a stronger chemical peel can help if your concerns are in the deeper layers. Recovery time might also influence which treatment you prefer because microdermabrasion requires minimal downtime.
How often should I get microdermabrasion treatments?
Initially, you should get 5 – 12 microdermabrasion sessions scheduled about 2 – 4 weeks apart to see your best results. After that, you should schedule treatments every 4 – 8 weeks to maintain your healthy complexion. During your consultation, your technician can make a plan with recommendations specific to your needs that plan out how often you need to schedule your next appointment for microdermabrasion.
Can I combine microdermabrasion with other treatments?
Since microdermabrasion is a surface skin treatment, you may consider combining it with other procedures. Many
patients combine microdermabrasion with an injectable (BOTOX® or JUVÉDERM®) or as part of a facial. You should be honest about your complexion concerns in your consultation — so your technician can create a treatment plan that fits all your cosmetic goals.
