What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion stimulates skin growth by taking off the top layers of skin cells. The dermis, or deep layer of the skin, regularly creates new layers of skin cells and pushes them upward, where they are stacked together as the layers of the epidermis. The dermis only goes into the skin production cycle again when this epidermal barrier gets a layer or two too thin. This is where
microdermabrasion comes in.
What can be treated?
Microdermabrasion can be used to address scar tissue (including scars from acne), wrinkled skin, enlarged/ oily pores, blemishes from sun exposure or overactive pigment, and other skin-tone issues such as uneven wearing of the skin. Several treatment sessions may be needed for best results, depending on the nature and scope of the desired solution.
Those with dull skin, fine facial lines or wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, clogged pores, or superficial scars, that desire a short, safe, and effective procedure with no downtime.

How Long do the Effects Last?
Like all esthetic procedures, lasting effects are dependent on a proper at-home skin care routine, genetics, and environmental factors. But, because you’ll notice an immediate improvement in your skin’s radiance, texture, and tone, a single treatment is appropriate simply when you wish to look healthy and refreshed.
For goals that include ridding the skin of discoloration, minimizing the appearance of fine wrinkles or lines (including stretch marks and cellulite), or ensuring the increased production of collagen in a particular area, multiple microdermabrasion sessions will be necessary. Typically, individuals are schedule five to twelve treatments spaced two to three weeks apart.
Microdermabrasion is not recommended for those who have deep scars, active keloids, a recent herpes outbreak, warts on the face, active acne, or auto-immune disorders. Pregnant women should also forego treatment. Microdermabrasion will not assist in diminishing the appearance of deep acne scars and it will not rid the body of stretch marks or cellulite, but will diminish their appearance.
