Microdermabrasion (often referred to as Micro or Microderm) is a treatment in which the stratum corneum (dead outermost surface of the skin) is partially or completely removed by light abrasion, to remove sun-damaged skin and to remove or lessen scars and dark spots on the skin.
The exfoliation process occurs when a diamond tipped head makes contact with the skin and abrades against it. The dead skin cells are withdrawn away from the face.
For best results, it is recommended you get a series of treatments and use in conjunction with anti-aging skin care products. Microdermabrasion can diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and coarse textured skin.
Microdermabrasion makes it easy for skin care products to actually penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance. We use ASAP skin care products in conjunction with a Microderm at our clinic.
