Microdermabrasion 101: How Long Do the Effects Last?

People love it when their skin feels smooth, soft, and supple to touch. But when their skin is exposed to plenty of pollution, make-up, and unhealthy habits, their skin can lose its natural glow and luster. The rough texture can deal a blow to one’s self-esteem, but at-home exfoliating remedies may not be enough to brighten the skin. 

When all your beauty products and exfoliators fail to do the trick, cosmetic procedures like microdermabrasion comes into play and offers a non-surgical, minimally invasive solution that can help rejuvenate the skin. It’s a treatment that can combat a myriad of skin concerns and can turn back the clock, allowing anyone to look fresher and younger. 

This begs the question: how long do the radiating effects of microdermabrasion last before you need to undergo another session?

A Look Into the Different Stages of Microdermabrasion 

Expect Immediate Results After the First Treatment Session 

One treatment session can already improve the dullness of your skin and give it more color. The procedure may leave you with a rosy complexion for a few hours, but it should fade and introduce a youthful vibrancy instead. The brighter appearance should look more prominent after 24 hours once your skin calms. 

Enjoy Fewer Fine Lines, Smoother Skin Texture, and Plumper Skin Over the Next Few Weeks 

Microdermabrasion stimulates collagen production, which may take some time to reveal its effects. Beyond a glowing look, your skin will start to remove layers of uneven texture by shedding the dead skin cells, leading to smoother skin, smaller pores, fewer fine lines, and fading dark spots. 

The next two to three weeks should be the best time to enjoy the cosmetic treatment’s effects since it’s when it shines the brightest, though you can enjoy plumper, elastic skin for longer periods by coming in for another session once a week for the next six to twelve weeks. 

The Wrap: Maintain Your Smoother, Younger-Looking, and Brighter Skin Long After Your Last Session 

Microdermabrasion is not a permanent solution to your beauty concerns, so it’s normal to expect a decline in the effects after a month. This is because your skin renews itself every 30 days, which means dark spots may start to take on a deeper hue again, the skin may start to feel rougher, and it’s likely looking duller since your last session. 

That’s why it’s important to come in for maintenance sessions once a month to prolong the effects and maintain a fresh-looking appearance, though it helps to have a good skincare routine to support the treatment.
