FAQ - Microdermabrasion Facial Kit
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a simple, painless and quick facial treatment with minimal risk. Microdermabrasion exfoliates the surface skin layers using abrasion (gentle scraping) and suction. The body reacts to the treatment by releasing high levels of elastin and collagen which improves the skin's overall texture, color, and appearance leading to a brighter, glowing, and younger looking skin.
It works best for skin conditions such as early photoaging (sun damage), fine lines, age spots, blackheads, whiteheads, acne and superficial scarring.
What areas of the body other than the face can I do treatments?
It can be done to any skin area which requires treatment such as neck, chest, back and hands.
Is microdermabrasion painful?

What should I expect before, during, and after a treatment?
Before: Skin should be thoroughly cleaned with a mild cleanser ensuring all make up and oil is washed out.
During: Skin will be stretched to provide some tension in order to achieve the most effective abrasion and vacuum. The hand piece is moved over the skin with repeated single, smooth passes. It is not advisable to hold it for more than 4 seconds in one area.
After: Softer and smoother skin that feels fresher and more rejuvenated is the expected outcome. Mild pinkness of the skin usually resolves within minutes to hours after microdermabrasion. Apply moisturiser to keep skin hydrated after the treatment and also use sunscreen for protection.
What is the recovery time after a treatment?
You can immediately resume daily activities after a session. However keep your skin hydrated and use only non-irritating skin care products right after.
What sort of care is required after a treatment?
Keep your skin hydrated and use gentle skin care products. Avoid using topical acne medications for at least one day after treatment. It is extremely important to protect your skin with sunscreen as your skin can be more sensitive to the sun soon after the treatment.
What is the best moisturizer to use after a treatment?
A fragrance-free, non-comedogenic moisturiser is highly recommended because it contains fewer irritants than standard facial creams and lotions but can still keep your skin fully hydrated. The non-comedogenic element means that it will not clog pores.
How often should microdermabrasion be done?
Microdermabrasion can be done as frequently as weekly or up to every 4-6 weeks depending on your skin's tolerance and desired cosmetic effects. Many customers choose to start with weekly treatments and then gradually move to a monthly maintenance regimen. Multiple treatments in combination with sunscreen and other skin-care creams yield best results.
When can I expect to see results?
You can expect to see noticeable results immediately after the procedure. The number of microdermabrasion sessions required will depend on the severity of your skin concerns as well as your expectations.
What ages are appropriate for microdermabrasion?
There are no specific age or sex restrictions, typically children over age 12 up to adults age 65 can use the Lux Fem Microdermabrasion Facial Kit. While there is no age maximum, mature skin over age 70 may have slightly higher risks of bruising and skin abrasions.
Is this treatment suitable for anyone?
