Microdermabrasion is a great non-surgical, non-invasive way to gently remove dead skin that’s on the outer layer of your face. The removal of this dead skin leaves behind noticeably more vibrant looking healthy skin. Microdermabrasion is one of the most common cosmetic procedures worldwide because of its effectiveness and absence of risk. It is a go to procedure for those who are looking to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, blackheads, scars, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne, and uneven skin tone caused by environmental or various skin conditions.

The simplest explanation of microdermabrasion is that it exfoliates by removing the dead skin which in turn stimulates collagen growth in treated areas. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that gives your skin structural support and tightness and makes your skin more youthful looking. As you age, your collagen production naturally depletes. Using microdermabrasion to remove the stop layer of dead skin will help move the process along and increase collagen production.

Despite microdermabrasion being non-invasive, some patients do experience a bit of discomfort after the treatment. Redness can be seen for up to 48 hours in some cases, but can often be prevented by following care instructions provided to you after the treatment.
