What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a procedure designed to smooth the texture of the skin and rejuvenate overall skin tone by gently resurfacing the outer layer. An applicator with an abrasive surface is used to essentially sand away rough or uneven areas of the skin, exfoliating away dead or damaged skin cells. Microdermabrasion may be completed with a diamond-tip handpiece or through crystal microdermabrasion, a technique which uses a spray of fine aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate particles rather than an abrasive surface to achieve the same results. 

Benefits of Microdermabrasion 

Microdermabrasion can be beneficial for a wide range of common skin concerns regarding tone or texture. It is generally considered suitable for all skin types and tones, as the procedure is minimally invasive. Microdermabrasion may improve:
