What is a Microdermabrasion?
This non-invasive procedure is extremely popular in skin care clinics and is known for its many benefits, including leaving skin looking and feeling rejuvenated.
During a microdermabrasion treatment, the clinical technician directs a stream of aluminum oxide crystals into the skin. These crystals exfoliate the skin, while the mild suction created by the microdermabrasion system removes the dead skin cells and crystals.
Microdermabrasion is an extremely popular procedure because of its non-invasive nature. It is a pain-free procedure that benefits patients with fine lines, pigmentation, clogged pores and acne scarring.
The Ideal Candidate
Because of its non-invasive nature, a microdermabrasion procedure is suited to anyone with fine facial lines or wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, uneven pigmentation, clogged pores, skin texture problems, or minor scars.
