What is microdermabrasion?

Category: Health & Beauty


Microderambrasion is a mechanical removal of the outermost layer of skin from your body, and most people get microderabrasion on their face, neck, chest and hands. The removal of the most damaged layer of skin helps to reduce the look of wrinkles and can minimize the appearance of pores or other blemishes. Because it exposes the more sensitive levels of your skin, you should be extra careful of sun exposure after getting the treatment.

Typically, you need to receive a series of microdermabrasion treatments in order to see the effects. The diamond tipped machine works the best but must be used by a skilled esthetician, so you can be sure your skin will not be damaged. This massive form of exfoliation started with crystals and eventually developed into a machine to more thoroughly remove all the dead skin cells. The effect is a smoother version of your skin that has not been damaged by the environment.
