Microdermabrasion is a safe, efficient technique used to improve the appearance of skin by making it seem less aged and wrinkled. The end result is that the skin is left smoother and hydrated. This result is achieved through the stimulation of the elastic tissue beneath the outer surface of the skin, leaving it with a better appearance. In order to achieve the desired results, the optimal time interval between treatments is two weeks apart across the span of six to eight visits, though this time can vary depending on the patient’s individual needs.
Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing technique that is safe and effective to improve the appearance of aged skin, wrinkles, colour, and skin texture. It leaves the skin radiant, smooth, and hydrated. This treatment also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive, relatively pain free, and non-surgical. The length of the treatment or the number of treatments depend on the patient’s skin type, skin tone, texture

Microdermabrasion may be very useful for people with active acne, mild acne discoloration, pick marks, and very superficial or raised acne scars. Dermatologists use microdermabrasion to help unclog pores and clear acne. Often used in combination with gentle glycolic peels and medical acne extractions, microdermabrasion can help speed up acne clearing. Individuals with deeper acne scars may expect a much longer series of treatments.
