Microdermabrasion FAQs

What is Microdermabrasion? 

Microdermabrasion is the proven skin clinic treatment that removes dead skin cells, clears clogged pores and boosts the production of Collagen which is a key to smoother healthier skin.


How does Microdermabrasion work?

Our Microdermabrasion Kit combines a 2 stage process into one quick treatment for clearer and healthier skin!


Detox and Exfoliates

The SmileSkin Microdermabrasion kit is equipped with a Microcrystalline tip which exfoliates, polishes away, and deeply cleanses your skin while the perfectly tuned vacuum unclogs your pores and removes toxins from your skin.


Revitalize & Brighten

Vacuum suction increases blood flow which triggers natural collagen production and stimulates new cell growth. Collagen is the essential protein which provides elasticity to the skin. As a result, your skin will look more youthful and healthier.

Is it easy to use?

Our Handset is designed to be Super Easy and convenient to use.

Simply –

  1. Start with clean dry skin.
  2. Steam for 10 minutes, then dry your skin.
  3. Pull skin tight to help the device glide smoothly.
  4. Move the device across the skin in an upward motion.
  5. Once finished, follow up with your favorite moisturizer.
  6. Relax and enjoy a smoother, healthier glow.


Do I need any creams or serums?

There are no additional creams or serums required. Continue with your daily skincare regime and be sure to moisturize after each treatment to keep your skin hydrated.


How will my skin benefit from the treatments?

  • Unclogged pores and visibly smaller pore size
  • Clearer and smoother Skin
  • Less frequent breakouts
  • Reduced pigmentation and smoother skin tone
  • Reduced mild acne scarring
  • Faded fine lines and wrinkles

How often should I use my handset?

One treatment per week is all you need to regenerate new, glowing skin. A Microdermabrasion Treatment takes only minutes and is a must have in your weekly skin routine.


Am I suitable for Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types and tones! If you are using chemical peels or products containing hydroxy acids, malic acid, lactic acid retinoids, you need to wait at least 7 days before using your handset. We do not recommend using your handset on inflamed or irritated skin.


Is Microdermabrasion painful?

Microdermabrasion provides comfortable and non-invasive skin treatment. Treatments should never be painful or cause any unwanted side effects. The sensation can be compared to that of an exfoliating scrub combined with a light facial massage.


Where can I use the handset?

The handset can be used on all parts of your face, neck and body but avoid using it on sensitive areas, such as around your eyes. 


Can I share the Microdermabrasion Kit?

Yes! We strongly recommend that each user keeps their own individual tips to avoid the spread of bacteria.


When will I begin to see results?

Right away! Our handset will leave your skin smooth and your pores visibly clearer after the first use. You will begin to see better results over longer periods of time. If you use your handset consistently once a week for more than 6 weeks, you will notice visibly smaller pores, clearer, and smoother glowing skin with less fine lines and pigmentation. Results may vary depending on your skin type.


How often will I need to replace the filter?

We recommend replacing the filter every 6-8 treatments.

What do each of the tips do?

Microcrystalline Tip

Composed of Microcrystalline particles, this tip is best suitable for deep exfoliation and removing debris and dead skin.

Small Tip

This tip is perfect for focus areas, such as nose and chin. It works well on removing oil build-up and pollutants from the skin.

Oval Tip

Please note that this tip has the strongest suction. We recommend using this only on the Lowest Level of Suction.

This tip is best for promoting blood circulation and inducing collagen production.


Does it help with Rosacea?

As exfoliation can dry the skin, it is important to follow the recommended usage and to moisturize post-treatment. Please do a patch test at least 48 hours before using the handset on the desired area. We always recommend discussing with your dermatologist or physician.


Does it help with Milia?

Since our product gently exfoliates and deeply cleanses skin, it can help fight off irritants which can cause Milia. We always recommend discussing with your dermatologist or physician.


Does it work for Dry Skin and/or Sensitive Skin?

Yes! Many of our customers with sensitive skin and/or dry skin achieve excellent results. The key is to use the handset on the lowest setting until you are familiar with the device and you feel that it feels comfortable on your skin. Continue to moisturize after each treatment to keep skin hydrated and fresh!


How strong is the suction?

Our Microdermabrasion handset can be super powerful as it has 5 levels of suction. We recommend levels 1-2 for the face.

How is the device powered?

Our handsets are 100% rechargeable. You can use it all around the world! 


Does the product come with warranty? 

Yes! All of our products come with a complete 2 Year Warranty! We offer full replacements provided the product is not damaged as a result of misuse and your purchase was made directly from SmileSkin.
