If you’re looking for a reliable, effective treatment option to address a variety of skin concerns, then here’s what to know about your options with microdermabrasion.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a skincare treatment that accomplishes physical exfoliation using a specialized handpiece to remove dead and damaged skin cells. A microdermabrasion handpiece uses crushed diamond wand a suction device to clear away the top surface of the skin and is a great option for most skin types and tones. Microdermabrasion works best as a package of treatments performed every few weeks in order to jumpstart your skin’s regenerative functions and remove debris from the surface.

What Can Microdermabrasion Treat?

Microdermabrasion works well for many different skin types and tones without the risks that come with certain laser or chemical treatments. Microdermabrasion can effectively address concerns like:
