Microdermabrasion Q & A

What should you know about microdermabrasion? 

When you enroll at Lakeview Aesthetic School, you receive well-rounded training that includes microdermabrasion, a technique that gently exfoliates the outer layer of dead skin. A Microdermabrasion involves a handheld device that loosens the skin and suctions away the old tissues. 

Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types, yet it’s strong enough to correct problems that affect many clients, such as:

  • Dull complexion
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Age spots
  • Blackheads
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Enlarged and clogged pores


The skin care treatments you provide after microdermabrasion are also essential. Following microdermabrasion, products that hydrate, nourish, and fight aging penetrate more easily, improving the results for your clients.

What should I expect from a microdermabrasion course at Lakeview Aesthetic School?

Your level of training and experience determine whether your clients receive a microdermabrasion treatment that’s mediocre or impressive. With practical training in our med spa, you master the subtle techniques of hand movement and pressure, the two elements that produce optimal microdermabrasion results.

At Lakeview Aesthetic School, we teach every aspect of patient care, so you have nothing but satisfied clients with glowing skin. During your microdermabrasion course, you learn to:

  • Evaluate your client’s overall health
  • Analyze your client’s skin type and problems
  • Explain and develop a microdermabrasion treatment plan
  • Discuss outcomes and potential side effects
  • Determine if your client is a good candidate for microdermabrasion
  • Recommend alternative treatments if microdermabrasion isn’t appropriate


Your course covers the essential elements of microdermabrasion, including the parts of the microdermabrasion tool, how each part works, and safety protocols.
