Microdermabrasion is a mechanical process that exfoliates the dead and damaged skin layers from the face. The outermost layer of skin typically contains most of the visible blemishes, pigmentation, roughness and wrinkles.
Medical grade, sterile aluminium oxide crystals are vacuumed over the skin using a hand piece to simultaneously removes the dead loosened skin cells. The procedure is performed under sterile conditions, and in most instances it is best to combine it with anti-aging creams, skin lighteners, or chemical peels.
