Microdermabrasion; also known as Microderm, is a minimally invasive skin resurfacing procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. This procedure lightly exfoliates or polishes away the highest layer of dead skin cells, while stimulating collagen growth, to reveal healthy new smooth skin. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, blemishes, dull skin, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions especially with regular treatments. Products like moisturizers, creams, and lotions are more easily absorbed after microdermabrasion treatment. This is often an easy, low-risk skin treatment that should be added to your beauty routine.

The procedure uses a special applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it.
Microdermabrasion is considered a safe lunch time procedure for most skin types and colors and if they have the following skin concerns:

⦁ fine lines and wrinkles
⦁ hyperpigmentation, age spots and brown spots
⦁ enlarged pores and blackheads
⦁ acne and acne scars
⦁ stretch marks
⦁ dull-looking skin complexion
⦁ uneven skin tone and texture
⦁ melasma
⦁ sun damage
⦁ maintenance therapy for healthy clear skin

Preparing for microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure. The procedure just requires basic preparation as compared to any other skin care procedure.
You must avoid sun exposure and waxing for about a week before treatment. You must stop using exfoliating creams and masks approximately three days prior to treatment.

How does microdermabrasion work?
