Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion (also known as "power peel") is more like softened sandblasting. It involves tiny crystals that are sprayed on the skin -- and works best on superficial skin problems like fine lines, dull skin, brown spots, mild acne scars, and age spots.

When Is Microdermabrasion Used?
Microdermabrasion can improve or eliminate superficial skin problems. It works on all skin types and colors -- producing subtle changes, causing no skin color change or scarring. However, it is not effective for deeper problems like scars, stretch marks, keloids, or deep acne scars.

With microdermabrasion, there is less down time than with dermabrasion; skin fully recovers within 24 hours. Another benefit: Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical procedure. Therefore, there are none of the risks associated with even minor surgery like dermabrasion, where anesthetics are used and skin bleeds. It's ideal for people who cannot afford to take time off from work or social activities for healing.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin in a gentle abrasion technique that removes the dead outer layer of skin. It is basically an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure. Age spots and fine lines can be erased, creating softer, smoother skin that has a younger feel to the touch.
