In microdermabrasion, tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin to gently remove the outer layer.
This technique is less aggressive than dermabrasion, so you don't need numbing medicine. It is basically an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that leaves skin feeling softer and looking brighter. It works best when resolving issues such as dull skin, brown spots, and age spots.
Microdermabrasion works on all skin types and colors. It makes subtle changes, causing no skin color change or scarring. It is not effective for deeper problems like scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, or deep acne scars. With microdermabrasion, there is less down time than with dermabrasion. Skin is temporarily pink but fully recovers within 24 hours. It doesn't require surgery or anesthesia, therefore it may be the best solution for people who cannot take "down time" for healing.
