Microdermabrasion treatments are a less aggressive, non surgical, approach that can be used instead of dermabrasion. Microdermabrasion gently sands the skin, removing the uneven outer layer creating smooth radiant skin.
It uses microparticles, or a diamond-tipped wand, to slough off the top layer (epidermis) of your skin and stimulate new skin growth. This technique also helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. Collagen, a protein in your skin that’s abundant when you’re a child and makes skin appear taut and smooth. As we age Collagen production declines resulting in looser, uneven skin.
This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration and sun damage. There is even microdermabrasion for stretch marks. There is almost no discomfort in microdermabrasion, meaning no anesthetic is needed and there is no recovery time.
