Microdermabrasion is a general term that refers to the process of applying very tiny rough grains of crystals, to exfoliate the outermost surface of the skin.
It is a cosmetic technique whose aim is to remove the topmost layer of the skin to create a rejuvenating effect and treat common skin problems such as acne scarring and mild discolouration, sun damage and wrinkles. It is in effect a painless, non-surgical procedure meant to get rid of the dead outer covering of the skin by applying fine abrasive crystals and vacuum suction to the skin.
Microdermabrasion can be helpful in the treatment of common skin problems ranging from acne scars to sun damage and hyperpigmentation. The procedure can be administered to patients from the age of 12 up to 65 and can be done as frequently as about two weeks depending on the skin’s sensitivity and tolerance. Since the human outer skin typically regenerates itself every 30 days, Microdermabrasion has to be done on a regular basis or in weekly sessions in order to record significant improvement of the skin’s cosmetic health.
