Microdermabrasion is non-invasive and will not require medications or numbing agents in preparation. It should not hurt and has been described as feeling like a cat is licking the skin. This procedure uses a slightly abrasive instrument to gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells at the surface. Unless the microdermabrasion treatment includes a skincare product, there are no chemicals involved.
There are many benefits of Microdermabrasion including:
Clearer and brighter complexion
Stimulate collagen production to restore elasticity
Reducing breakouts by unclogging pores
Reduces the appearance of aging - treats sun exposure, dry skin, scarring, fine lines, and wrinkles
Promotes even skin tone and reduces pigmentation - corrects, strengthens, and clarifies the skin
The benefits of Microdermabrasion don't end there though, it also helps with:
The process can improve blood and lymphatic circulation deep within the skin, which can improve the internal health of the skin. The enhanced blood flow means more oxygen and nutrients are supplied to the cells. This improves cell processes and therefore enhances the skin, improving elasticity.
Enhances Product Efficacy
By removing the dead skin and promoting circulation, microdermabrasion has been shown to enhance the absorption of skincare products by up to 50%. This means that if you are treating your skin for acne, the skin will be more receptive to the product, so it can have better results than it normally would.
Pore Size And Health
Microdermabrasion can not only unclog pores but also reduces the size of them. While to a certain extent we are born with a certain pore size, some external factors can enlarge them. Pores may enlarge due to hygiene, inflammation of the skin or as a result of being clogged. Microdermabrasion can help clear the blockage and by improving the circulation of the skin can reduce inflammation and improve natural skin hygiene.

Microdermabrasion can be done as frequently as weekly or up to every eight weeks depending on your skin's tolerance and desired cosmetic effects. The results you get from microdermabrasion are cumulative. Generally, six to 10 treatments are scheduled seven to 14 days apart.
Most people request microdermabrasion to rejuvenate the complexion of the face and neck, but a specialist can perform the procedure on any area of skin. After microdermabrasion skin will appear softer, smoother, brighter, clearer, fresher and younger looking.
