Microdermabrasion is now the most skin treatment in the United States accounting for nearly 70% of all cosmetic treatments.
Microdermabrasion can be thought of as a mild form of sandblasting for effective exfoliation of the skin surface.
The treatment consists of very fine particles of silica blown at the skin under pressure and then immediately vacuumed back up along with the dead skin cells.
The degree of suction can be altered to allow treatments to be given quite close to the more sensitive under eye area as well as to other areas of the body.
Microdermabrasion is a very useful treatment in its own right, helping clear blocked pores, increasing blood circulation is to the surface of the skin and reducing skin thickness.
Microdermabrasion is especially useful in the treatment of active where blocked pores and congested skin are associated with bacterial infection.
Microdermabrasion also improves the effectiveness of other treatments, such as the Nlite laser, Environ Vitamin treatments and skincare products.
