Microdermabrasion is a popular, machine assisted skin-exfoliating treatment. It is a painless, noninvasive, skin-rejuvenation procedure using a combination of a fine abrasive tip and vacuum suction applied to the skin. Microdermabrasion works by removing a few of the top layers of skin called the stratum corneum. It works best on improving conditions on the surface of the skin such as early photo aging (sun damage), fine lines, age spots, enlarged pores, acne and superficial scarring.
Much like brushing your teeth, microderm helps to gently remove “plaque” and skin debris. Since human skin typically regenerates at approximately 30-day intervals, skin improvement with microdermabrasion is temporary and needs to be repeated at average intervals of two to four weeks for continued improvement.
