Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure used as a facial rejuvenation tool. A technician uses a machine to rapidly discharge super-fine crystals onto the skin's surface, removing the outermost layer of the skin, the stratum corneum. The crystals are then vacuumed away. The treatment is not painful, and there is no recovery time.
During a microdermabrasion treatment, a machine is used to emit fine crystals through a handheld wand. The technician gently drags the wand over your skin physically abrade the outermost layer of the skin while simultaneously vacuuming the exfoliated particles away.
Although it sounds brutal, microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, and a virtually painless, procedure. The main benefits of microdermabrasion are that it's quick, it's inexpensive compared to other skin rejuvenation procedures, and there is no down-time. You can have a treatment done during your lunch hour and head back to work directly afterward.
