Microdermabrasion is one of the most recent skin-care techniques to have crossed over from Hollywood to the mainstream. It’s being advanced as an “instant facelift”. Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. The idea is that if you remove or break up the top layers of your skin, the body interprets that as a mild injury and rushes to replace the lost skin cells with new and healthy ones. This process has a many beneficial effects. With the top layers of skin gone, the skin’s surface is improved. The healing process brings with it newer skin cells that look and feel smoother. Some of the skin’s visible imperfections, like sun damage, acne scars, open pores, blemishes and fine lines, are removed. Also, without the top layers of skin acting as a barrier, medicinal creams and lotions are more effective because more of their active ingredients and moisture can find their way down to the lower layers of
skin. This treatment has no down time and is virtually painless. After the treatment, your skin will have a natural glow and will feel smooth and soft.
