Is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses a device with a diamond-tipped wand or fine crystals to exfoliate and remove the outer layer of dead skin cells from the face, neck, chest, or other areas of the body.
This treatment aims to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and minimize hyperpigmentation or age spots.
During the procedure, the skin is cleansed and prepared, and then the microdermabrasion device is applied to the skin. The wand or crystals gently abrade the skin’s surface, removing the dead skin cells and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for healthy skin. The treatment is painless, and patients usually experience a sensation similar to mild sandpaper moving across their skin.
Microdermabrasion can be a stand-alone treatment, but it is often combined with other skincare treatments like chemical peels, LED light therapy, or facials for enhanced results. It is suitable for most skin types and can be customized to address specific skin concerns. The results of microdermabrasion are typically noticeable after one treatment, but a series of treatments may be recommended for optimal results.
