Microdermabrasion is a facial procedure that uses manual exfoliation to remove the outer layer (epidermis) of skin that contains dead skin cells.This process works in a series to achieve the best results. Microdermabrasion treatments are great for skin rejuvenation, to reduce fine lines or wrinkles, to eliminate unwanted superficial pigmentation,
to reduce faint to moderate stretch marks and superficial scarring. Microdermabrasion is not the solution for heavily damaged skin. It is a non-invasive alternative for those who do not require more serious treatments such as laser treatments or chemical peels.
If you have uneven skin texture, sun damage and would like to improve the overall condition of your skin, you are most likely a good candidate for microdermabrasion treatments. Depending on the area treated, you will notice an improvement in your skin's appearance after your treatment. Acne scars will be less obvious. Age spots and fine lines are reduced, and many Microdermabrasion clients report that their skin seems softer, tighter, smoother and younger looking after their the first treatment.
Other skin conditions that have shown improvement with microdermabrasion treatments include:
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Reducing skin dullness (occurs with aging skin)
- Keratosis Pilaris - treatments can temporarily smooth out these hard, conical forma-
tions on the pores, allowing topical treatment creams to be more effective (they look
similar to goose bumps only more permanent and are usually found on the thighs and
- Some stretch marks
- Opening blackheads and keeping pores clean (microdermabrasion is not intended for
acne therapy, but improvements have been noted)
