Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves exfoliating the outermost layer of the skin to improve its texture, tone, and overall appearance. It is commonly used to treat various skin concerns, such as dullness, fine lines, mild acne scars, age spots, and uneven skin tone. Microdermabrasion can be performed on the face, neck, chest, back, arms, and hands.
The procedure is usually carried out using a handheld device that emits a stream of tiny abrasive crystals or a diamond-tipped wand. These abrasive particles gently remove the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing fresher, younger-looking skin beneath.
The process also stimulates blood circulation and promotes the production of collagen, which can lead to improved skin texture and firmness over time.
