Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses a spray of microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin.
Microdermabrasion also encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance. Microdermabrasion is much gentler than dermabrasion.
Dermabrasion is a more intensive procedure used to treat deeper facial lines, extreme sun damage, and scars.
Patients with fine facial lines or wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, uneven pigmentation, clogged pores, skin texture problems, or minor scars are good candidates for microdermabrasion.
Patients with rosacea or acne may also benefit from microdermabrasion treatments. The gentle spray of microcrystals can eliminate or improve skin imperfections and conditions by removing the upper layer of dead and damaged skin cells to reveal new, fresh skin.

Interested in Microdemabrasion abroad?
You'll consult with the professional who's doing the procedure.
In a dermabrasion consultation, you'll discuss your goals, the procedure's risks and benefits, and the type of anesthesia that will be used. You'll also get instructions to follow before and after dermabrasion and perhaps have "before" photos taken to compare with your results later.
With microdermabrasion, the consultation is similar but with less talk about anesthetics and risks because it is a simpler procedure.
During a microdermabrasion treatment, the clinician directs a stream of tiny ("micro") aluminum oxide crystals through a hand piece that is placed against the skin.
These dermabrasion crystals exfoliate the skin, and the mild suction created by the microdermabrasion system removes the skin debris and crystals.
Microdermabrasion helps produce thicker, healthier skin layers; multiple treatments are vital because they encourage the production of a new layer of skin cells that contains higher levels of collagen and elastin.
Both of these components are essential for vibrant, healthy skin, and they will further improve your complexion and the overall appearance of your skin.
Approximately five to twelve treatments spaced two to three weeks apart are usually necessary to reap full microdermabrasion benefits.
Convenient and virtually painless, the microdermabrasion procedure takes only 30 to 60 minutes and is commonly referred to as the “lunch hour facial.”

BEFORE MICRODERMABRASION ABROAD
Post procedure care
Microdermabrasion is often called a "lunch hour" treatment because it's a quick procedure that can be performed at a doctor's office during your lunch hour with little or no discomfort.
The treated skin may be pink after the treatment, but this will usually fade within a few hours. You can apply makeup soon after undergoing microdermabrasion to conceal any visible signs of the treatment. Microdermabrasion recovery and results are among the most favorable of all the noninvasive facial treatments available today.
