Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic treatment that uses a specialized device to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin, which is made up of dead skin cells. This process can help to improve the appearance of skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars, as well as improving the overall texture and tone of the skin.

During a microdermabrasion treatment, a trained professional will use a handheld device that contains tiny crystals or a diamond-tipped wand to remove the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This process is typically painless and non-invasive, and it can be performed on various parts of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands.

After a microdermabrasion treatment, patients may experience some mild redness and sensitivity, but these side effects usually subside within a few hours. Most people require multiple treatments to achieve their desired results, and maintenance treatments may be recommended to help maintain the benefits of the treatment over time.
