* While a substantial difference is usually felt in just 1-2 treatments, a series is recommended to achieve ideal desired benefits. A suggested series is 4-6 treatments at approximately 2-week intervals. It is recommended that you receive an additional Microdermabrasion treatment every 1-3 months to maintain your skin in optimal condition. It is typical to experience some redness, some sensations of having a mild windburn or sunburn, and some tightness of the skin for up to 24 hours after treatment.
