Microdermabrasion cleans and renews skin. The skin is washed to remove excess oil and dirt. Then, a medical professional targets a stream of aluminum oxide crystals over the area. The crystals abrade away old, dead skin cells, which the vacuum then picks up with gentle suction. This promotes the growth of collagen and new, rejuvenated skin. Moisturizers and sun block are then applied to the treated area.
The results are, your skin feels softer and appears younger. Minor wrinkles are improved by the growth of new collagen. Exfoliation improves small brown spots, uneven skin tone, acne and acne scars. One of the advantages of Microdermabrasion is that it has no downtime. You can return to your normal routine and apply cosmetics directly after treatment. A difference is noticeable immediately, and results improve with multiple treatments. Skin improvement varies depending on your individual skin quality.

Some treatments focus purely on strengthening muscle tissue and lifting the skin; others use the microcurrent to propel anti-ageing products deep into the epidermis, rejuvenating dull complexions. Some do both.
