Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves exfoliating the outermost layer of the skin to improve its texture and appearance. It uses a handheld device that emits fine crystals or utilizes a diamond-tipped wand to gently remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.
During a microdermabrasion facial, the handheld device is moved across the skin, creating a gentle abrasion and suction motion. This exfoliation process helps to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and stimulate the production of new skin cells and collagen. The procedure is generally painless.
The benefits of a microdermabrasion facial include:
- Smoother skin texture: By removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, microdermabrasion can help improve the texture of the skin, making it feel smoother and softer.
- Even skin tone: Microdermabrasion can reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, sunspots, and age spots, resulting in a more even skin tone.
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles: The stimulation of collagen production can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a more youthful look.
- Improved absorption of skincare products: By removing the top layer of dead skin cells, microdermabrasion allows skincare products to penetrate more effectively into the skin, enhancing their effectiveness.
