Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a quick non-invasive procedure used to refresh the skin. It is sometimes called “lunch break peeling”. This relatively new method carefully removes the top layer of cells from damaged skin by firing tiny crystals at the skin. This technique exfoliates and smoothes the surface of the skin, stimulating the formation of a new, smoother and cleaner surface. It is most commonly applied to the face and neck, but can be done on any part of the body (eg the back of the palms).

What is the benefit of applying this procedure?

Microdermabrasion can correct the rough surface of the skin, some types of scars, uneven pigmentation and age spots. It can also remove or reduce the number of open and closed comedones, the type of stretch marks and the finest wrinkles. By removing the top layers of the epidermis, microdermabrasion stimulates the formation of a new surface layer. Microdermabrasion can be applied to all skin types in terms of oiliness, color and age. For best results, it is recommended to perform one procedure per week within the therapeutic course.

Microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of the skin, but will not affect sagging, baggy or deep wrinkled skin. Lifting the face is often necessary to correct such problems.
