Microdermabrasion is a simple, non-invasive procedure that works to rejuvenate skin and resolve a number of existing cosmetic issues. Many patients have questions about the procedure itself and whether or not they are a good candidate. This article is all about microdermabrasion. We’ll talk about what the procedure entails and what it can be used for.

Microdermabrasion Explained

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical and non-invasive cosmetic skin rejuvenation treatment. It is a great entry point for patients who have never had a cosmetic skin procedure before. During the procedure itself, the patient’s skin is exfoliated using a special device. This removes the outer layers of skin and reveals the newer, youthful skin underneath. Perhaps the best part of microdermabrasion is that it does not require any downtime or medication. It is non-surgical and completely painless.

Conditions Treated

Microdermabrasion can be used to effectively treat a variety of skin conditions, including all of the following:

  • Fine lines and other early signs of aging
  • Acne and associated scarring
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Blackheads and large pores

Many patients see the best results when they get treatments on a somewhat regular basis (once every few months). This will keep your skin glowing and youthful while correcting many early cosmetic defects!
