Microdermabrasion or, more commonly referred to as Microderm, is a way to exfoliate the top layer of skin off allowing for new, fresh, smooth skin to form.
The treatment helps rejuvenate the skin and improve scars, brown spots and age spots. What emerges after the microdermabrasion session is a glowing fresh smooth surface.
It is not a treatment for burn scars, moles, or birthmarks. Think of it as a professional scrub that goes beyond the at-home scrubs using sand or a diamond tip.

What does the Microdermabrasion treatment involve?

If you need a more aggressive treatment, your provider may recommend Dermabrasion, which requires numbing and possibly medication.
Once you’ve decided to have the treatment, your microdermabrasion provider will discuss all the details with you during the consultation. The consultation is quick, since it’s a simple procedure.
This non-invasive skin care treatment may be combined with other skin care treatments, Botox injections, or fillers to further enhance your facial rejuvenation and aesthetic results.
