What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
The procedure uses a special applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it.
Microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure for most skin types and colors.
People might choose to get the procedure if they have the following skin concerns:
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Hyperpigmentation, age spots, and brown spots
• Enlarged pores and blackheads
• Acne and acne scars
• Stretch marks
• Dull-looking skin complexion
• Uneven skin tone and texture
• Sun damage
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, fight acne and remove acne scarring, even skin tone, diminish white and blackheads, minimize large pores and revitalize dull skin. Microdermabrasion helps skin regeneration by increasing its elasticity and collagen production. The skin looks fresh and feels smooth as soon as treatment is over. With micro abrasion, there is no recovery time and no discomfort.
How do I know if Microdermabrasion is right for me?
If the goal is to get rid of superficial acne scars, blotchy skin, large pores, age or sun spots, fine wrinkles, or uneven skin tone and texture, you are a perfect candidate for microdermabrasion. All skin types and colors can be treated with microdermabrasion. However, talk to a specialist about your medical history because there are skin conditions, such as Rosacea, which may make microdermabrasion unsuitable for you.
How long does a Microdermabrasion treatment take?
A typical microdermabrasion face treatment takes between 20 and 30 minutes. However, if you want your neck or other parts of the body treated, it may last up to an hour.

"My massage here was better than my massage at the Four Seasons."
"I booked a body scrub and massage while visiting Boston for work. I booked it based on other reviews and price point. I’ve had a lot of massages in my life and my massage here was better than my massage at the Four Seasons. My therapist, Mary, made everything super relaxing. The room was quiet, music was relaxing, and the quality was amazing. Mary made it so relaxing that I fell asleep!
Highly recommend coming here and ask for Mary!

The cupping therapy sessions are excellent and can be done before a massage or as a stand-alone treatment. The massage treatments are very high quality, and done by staff who make every effort to make it a memorable experience, The overall experience at Sculpture Body Center is outstanding and always a highlight of our trips to Boston.
