Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that improves mild to moderate sun damage, scaling and roughness, acne and other superficial skin problems. It can also help to enhance circulation for healthier skin. A vibrating abrasive paddle removes the outer layer of skin and provides a fresh, glowing appearance. Any part of the body including the face, chest, neck, arms and hands can be treated. There is only mild transient redness after the procedure and you can return to regular activities immediately. Microdermabrasion is often combined with other skin renewal procedures. Multiple treatments are recommended for full effect and periodic maintenance therapy is also encouraged.
