Yes, you can have microdermabrasion done in the summer. The skin needs to be exfoliated year round! However, soothe and replenish the skin with ingredients that counteract any irritation and inflammation. Make sure to pack the skin with protective antioxidants. Finishing with sun protection.

I absolutely agree with skinspecialists, you can have microdermabrasion during the summer but SPF30 or over is a must as your epidermis is much thinner after that treatment. Also the treatment area shouldn't be exposed for sun and sunbeds are not permitted up to 2 weeks after treatment.
I wouldn't recommend that treatment before holiday because of sun exposure but it is great treatment after you come back (unless your skin is not burned or red or just after sun exposure/ sunbeds)
Hi Jaclyn yes you can have microdermabrasion during the summer, provided you are prepared to use a good sunscreen and avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. We make a point of applying sunscreen directly after our clients have had a microdermabrasion treatment, whatever the weather, and encourage them to apply it daily as part of their skincare routine.
We also adjust the level of microdermabrasion that we would normally apply during winter months, and apply a lighter level of dermabrasion. If you are going on holiday and you know that you will be exposed to sunlight, we recommend that you don't have a treatment immediately before you go away.
After you return from your holiday is a good time to have a microdermabrasion treatment (provided you are not burned red from sun exposure) your skin may be congested as a result of application of sunscreens, and the outer layer of your skin will have thickened in response to sun exposure, which can leave it looking dull.
The best thing to do is find a good salon or clinic near you that provides the treatment, and ask for a consultation first. Most good ones offer free advice and consultations, and will be able to asses your skin type and help you decide what's best for you.
