Often called a “power peel,” microdermabrasion is a noninvasive skincare treatment where the superficial or outermost layers of your skin are removed.
Microdermabrasion is a progressive type of skincare procedure that often requires more than just one session to achieve the best results. The whole process takes about 45 minutes and does not require anesthesia.
A highly targeted tool delivers crystals of aluminum oxide or natural diamond chips and sodium chloride or sodium bicarbonate in a spray to your skin’s surface. At the same time, a small vacuum works simultaneously to remove dead skin and used chips. Simultaneously, another tool works as a buffering agent.
Microdermabrasion can also be combined with other treatments like anti-aging creams, chemical peels, or skin lighteners. The results of a microdermabrasion treatment are a younger, healthier appearance.
It is an excellent way to reduce things like:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Mild acne scars
- Dull skin
- Coarse pores
- Photo-damage that can lead to age spots or hyperpigmentation
- Stretch marks
