Microdermabrasion is a professional exfoliation that removes the damaged cells from the outer layer of the skin. The treatment gives your skin a smooth, soft texture and renewed radiance. Microdermabrasion benefits include the reduction of common skin concerns, such as:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damage
- Mild scars, such as those caused by acne
- Dark spots and age spots
A microdermabrasion facial is safe for most skin types. Pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding can have microdermabrasion when they are not ideal candidates for chemical peels and other procedures.
Microdermabrasion treatments work by administering a high-speed stream of diamond particles across the surface of the skin. The microdermabrasion system simultaneously vacuums away the diamond dust along with dead skin cells, debris, and other particles that are dislodged from the skin.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that requires no downtime or recovery. Your skin may feel slightly sensitive and have a pinkish hue.
Microdermabrasion should be part of your skin care routine. Dr. Baker recommends monthly microdermabrasion facials to keep the skin surface free of any debris that can lead to acne and other issues.
