Microdermabrasion: Overview

Microdermabrasion: This non-invasive procedure gently exfoliates the skin to diminish signs of aging.

Do you ever look in the mirror and wish that your face had a more even skin tone? If you answered yes, you may want to consider microdermabrasion. This non-invasive treatment gently exfoliates your skin. After a series of treatments, your complexion can appear smoother, brighter, and more even in color. 

The microdermabrasion that a dermatologist performs differs from the one that you can do at home with a kit. A dermatologist treatment goes a bit deeper into the skin. Still, the procedure is safe for all skin colors.

Microdermabrasion appeals to many patients. They like that they can see more youthful skin without having downtime. 

  • Dull complexion.
  • Uneven skin tone or texture.
  • Age spots.
  • Dark spots that can appear when acne starts to clear.
  • Melasma.

 

Dermatologists also use microdermabrasion to improve the results gained from using anti-aging products and skin-bleaching products. Microdermabrasion allows these products to penetrate the skin more easily.
