Within the medical spa environment, a number of desired services relate to skin care. At Clarity Skin, we offer services in everything from laser facials to tattoo removal, and one of our skin services remains one of our most popular treatments: Microdermabrasion.

The term may sound ominous, but in fact, microdermabrasion is among the least invasive and most effective skin layer treatments out there. It uses no chemicals and requires no downtime, utilizing a special exfoliation process to remove upper layers of excess skin. Let’s learn about how microdermabrasion can benefit you.

No Pain, No Risk

Microdermabrasion carries no pain, and not even mild discomfort beyond some very mild scratching or stinging during the procedure. Many people describe it as feeling similarly to a deep tissue massage. There’s no anesthesia or sedation involved, meaning you don’t need to arrange for someone to drive you to your appointment. Side effects can very occasionally include some brief swelling or pink skin, and a slightly raised sensitivity to the sun for a few days. There is virtually no risk of infection or complications.

Speed of Treatment

This treatment takes under an hour in most cases, or even less if you’re only treating the neck and not the face. Some people need multiple treatments.

Skin Types

Microdermabrasion is excellent for all skin types. It works for both younger and aging skin, and is great for helping remove sun damage or age spots. People with oily skin or frequent acne can use it as well – it’s good against blemishes. Single uses of microdermabrasion can offer a temporarily great look before a special occasion while treatments over a period of weeks or months continues to rid troublesome breakouts.


From a technical standpoint, there’s no such thing as an unsuccessful microdermabrasion treatment. Some people require more than one to get the desired effects, but there’s basically no evidence of extreme outliers who simply can’t receive any benefits from this treatment. Results are extremely consistent among dermatologists all over the country.
