Microdermabrasion treatments are a non-surgical way to freshen and rejuvenate the facial skin. A less aggressive approach, microdermabrasion treatments make use of a minimally abrasive instrument to gently exfoliate the skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer.
There are two kinds of microdermabrasion treatments, one using a handheld device and the other that uses a diamond-tipped wand.
Microdermabrasion is used to treat light scarring, discoloration and sun damage, and can be used to lessen the appearance of stretch marks, among other conditions.
The technique also helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. Collagen is a protein in your skin that’s abundant when you’re a child and makes skin appear taut and smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin.
