Microdermabrasion PDF Print E-mail

Microdermabrasion is a mini procedure that involves the skin being "sandblasted" by aluminum oxide crystals or an abrasive surface such as Diamond to remove the stratum corneum (top) layer of the skin; dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion also promotes the production of new cells in the basal (deepest) layer of the dermis. Microdermabrasion requires no down time. It can clean your pores incredibly and hinder any future breakouts if used on a regular basis. Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen networking to further even out skin texture and appearance.

The best candidates for microdermabrasion are individuals with acne prone and blotchy skin, small scars, rhytides, keratoses, large pores, milia, or sebaceous hyperplasia. If you have sun damage or uneven texture and would like to improve the condition of your skin, you may be a good candidate for Microdermabrasion.
