Microdermabrasion is a method of polishing and removing the uppermost layer of the skin to promote a healthier, firmer, more vibrant complexion. Topical exfoliation as well as indirect stimulation to the basal layer of the skin have a direct influence on increased fibroblast, collagen and elastin production, improving the texture and appearance of the skin.

Several treatments are necessary to achieve desired results. For optimal results, other regimes may be recommended, including skin care products to assist in the blending of pigmentation, reducing sun damage, etc. The FDA has given clearance for physician grade microdermabrasion to:

  • Exfoliate dead skin cells
  • Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Remove thickened areas of the skin caused by dehydration or environmental factors
  • Reduce existing blackheads or white heads
  • Prevent breakouts
  • Lighten dark spots
  • Reduce scar tissue
  • Improve post-inflammatory pigmentation scarring from acne.
