How Microdermabrasion Works
Microdermabrasion is like a gentle “sandblasting” for the skin. This treatment involves directing tiny crystals of aluminum dioxide toward the top layer of the skin. This measure removes old cells, which allows new, healthy cells to shine through.
Patients appreciate the results of this pleasant procedure and the fact that there is almost no downtime. At most, slight redness occurs from the exfoliation process, but this fades quickly.
Treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete and is suitable for a wide range of skin tones. The effect of microdermabrasion on the skin makes it an appropriate treatment to reduce fine lines, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and acne scarring.
