Microdermabrasion is a painless, noninvasive skin-rejuvenation treatment that involves applying an abrasive tip or crystals to the skin while vacuum suction is applied. Microdermabrasion does not involve the use of needles or anesthetics. Depending on the skin's sensitivity and tolerance, the vacuum pressure and speed are adjusted. Microderm works by removing a few layers of the outer skin.
People with dull or sallow skin, mild acne, acne discolouration, pick marks, and very superficial acne scars may benefit from microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion is an effective and quick treatment for those with a tight schedule with superficial skin concerns that wants to get the most out of their treatment with the least amount of downtime and side effects. Make-up and non-irritating lotions can usually be applied shortly after treatment.
