Facials and Microdermabrasion Q & A

What happens during a facial?

A facial is a professional treatment that not only pampers but also improves your skin. You can choose from several different types of facials, each with distinct structures and outcomes.

Your aesthetician considers your skin type, comfort level, and concerns before assembling your skin-care regimen. Most professional facials typically involve the following steps:

  • Cleansing: specialty cleanser to remove dirt and grime
  • Massage: kneading to reduce tension and improve blood flow
  • Exfoliation: coarse cleanser or microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells
  • Moisturizing: hydrating formulas to relax and replenish the skin


Your provider can also incorporate blackhead extractions, masques, peels, or other treatments into your facial.

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a skin-exfoliating treatment using a special handheld tool with a moving abrasive head to remove the outer layer of skin. Microdermabrasion is often incorporated into the exfoliation step of a facial.

This process removes dead skin cells and increases blood flow in the process. The resurfacing treatment also encourages collagen growth, which contributes to a younger, more refreshed appearance.

Microdermabrasion is a form of skin rejuvenation that helps improve the appearance of:

  • Discoloration, such as age spots
  • Light scarring
  • Large pores and blackheads
  • Stretch marks
  • Fine lines

What are the benefits of facials and microdermabrasion?

Facials and microdermabrasion are a great way to improve your complexion without more involved techniques like injections, lasers, or surgery. The treatments leave you with a radiant, improved complexion by encouraging your body’s skin regenerative mechanisms.

Medical-grade facials and microdermabrasion treatments, in a medical setting from an experienced practitioner, are also far safer and more effective than at-home or salon treatments. With medical oversight from Dr. Singleton, every precaution is taken, and your medical history, allergies, and skin type are considered.

These treatments are also meant to be very relaxing. They give you the opportunity to rest, incorporate self-care, and take a break from your daily stressors in a restorative environment.
