How Does Microdermabrasion Treatment Help Skin?


Microdermabrasion is a painless, non-invasive treatment that improves your skin and requires no downtime. The procedure utilizes a special machine to apply a slightly rough applicator tip to the surface of your skin, removing the uppermost layer of skin.

What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion can provide your skin with the following benefits:

  • Improving your skin’s tone and texture

  • Making your skin look brighter and healthier
  • Evening out your skin tone
  • Softening of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improving the signs of sun damage
  • Lightening dark acne marks

How long do the effects of microdermabrasion last?

For most people, microdermabrasion should be performed in several treatments spaced about 7 to 10 days apart. Afterward, you can help maintain its effects by receiving maintenance treatments about every 2 to 3 months.

Is microdermabrasion good for your face?
