Microdermabrasion is a device with diamond or sapphire heads used to treat the skin with micro-crystals for deep exfoliation. This treatment can provide fast, deep exfoliation with minimal discomfort and downtime.
The treatment works for most skin types and is used to correct imperfections such as superficial wrinkles, discolorations, scars, acne, blackheads, as well as address dry rough skin texture due to exposure to the environment. A treatment with microdermabrasion also removes the tough outer surface layer of the skin, which allow skin products to have improved penetration and leading to better results.
Depending on the the patient’s skin type and severity of concerns, microdermabrasion is typically done in several sessions conducted weekly, in between sessions the regeneration of the epidermis occurs. Mild treatments, such as a facial rejuvenation,takes about 5 sessions, while scar removal can take more than 10 sessions.
