Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure aiming for skin rejuvenation and renewal.
It can be applied to male or female patients at any age, and for all skin types.
It is mainly used in the face but is also applicable in the hands, back, chest, neck, shoulders, and other areas of the body.
The process takes no downtime at all, unlike other skin treatments like chemical peeling. It is also relatively painless and very effective, making it very popular among dermatologists.
How it Works
Microdermabrasion devices use a highly controlled wand with fine micro-crystals that gently exfoliate dead skin cells. This process introduces fresh new skin to come to the surface, resulting in younger looking skin.
Some of the obvious benefits include:
- Minimal risk
- No downtime
- Minimal discomfort
- Applicable for all skin types
The procedure is used as treatment for:
- Treatment for fine lines and wrinkles
- Solution for acne and pimples
- Superficial scars
- Sun damage
- Blackheads and whiteheads (comedones)
- Oily skin
- Dry skin
- Age spots
Microdermabrasion is a safe and easy alternative to chemical peeling and is preferred by most dermatologists in the United States.
