Frequently Asked Questions about Microdermabrasion

I am considering injections to remove wrinkles. What is the difference between injections and Microdermabrasion? 

Injections treat a specific area by enabling the muscle underneath to relax. The three main areas of the face that can be corrected with injections are forehead, crowes feet and frown lines. However if your skin is aged or sun damaged in other areas, the result may be unnatural if you use injections only in certain areas. You can have microdermabrasion up to 2 days before injections or 3-4 weeks after it to smooth out the skin in the other areas.

I have heard dermal fillers are used to remove wrinkles. What is the difference between dermal fillers and Microdermabrasion?

Fillers mean injecting hydroclauric acid into the face to reduce lines and wrinkles.Fillers are also used to augment the thin lips. Microdermabrasion does not use any chemical or acid. During the microdermabrasion it is possible to use ulltrasonic to promote collagen in the skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Collagen is the substance which skin loses as it ages. Microdermabrasionis used by many people as an alternative to hydroclauric acid fillers as the production of collagen is stimulated naturally without injections or chemicals during ultrasonic microdermabrasion. Those who prefer not to have injections may prefer to use microdermabrasion instead of fillers.

Will Microdermabrasion cause redness? Normally redness occurs for up to 48 hours. In some cases redness can occur for longer periods of time, sometimes up to 2 weeks for complete recovery.


Is the treatment suitable for men?

Yes, Microdermabrasion is an ideal treatment to rejuvenate male skin as well as female. Male skin can be more course. Because we use a Diamond System, we can alter the level to suit skin which is particularly rough and course. That is why men benefit extremely well with this treatment at Dublin Vitality Center. Many men choose Microdermabrasion over injections because the results are gradual and natural. The difference happens subtly over time and there is no risk of downtime. Many sports people and male figures in the public eye use microdermabrasion. The result is improved appearance naturally.

Im getting married. Should I have microdermabrasion to optimise my skin?

How do I know if Microdermabrasion is for me?

The skin shows signs of aging in 2 ways. Examine your skin and consider which of these is most relevant to you.

Hard visible individual deep lines  especially around eyes and in between the eyebrows. These hard lines can be corrected with fillers and injections. However injections will only target a specific area of the face such as crows feet, in between the eyebrows and frown lines. For an overall natural look, combine it with microdermabrasion.

Rough Dull Skin with fine lines. You are an ideal candidate.The skin shows overall signs of aging through skin damage caused by the sun, rough uneven tone and also open pores. Microdermabrasion is used to achieve a smooth youthful look on the whole skin. Using microdermabrasion it is possible to create a fresh smooth even radiant tone all over the face. No injections are needed or used during microdermabrasion and that is why many people prefer this over fillers and injections.
