Microdermabrasion treatment is an advanced form of exfoliation. Exfoliation means removing the most superficial layer of skin which is ordinarily composed of dead skin cells.
Everybody has dead skin cells on their top layer of facial and body skin and the body is continuously in the process of replacing these dead cells by producing new skin cells. Microdermabrasion treatment speeds up the process by removing more dead skin cells in a shorter period of time. This encourages the faster production of more fresh skin cells.
In practical terms this means fresher and more healthy looking skin and if the microdermabrasion treatment process is repeated several times the continual regeneration of fresh skin cells results in reduced lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and scars.
Will I be able to resume my normal activities afterward?
Probably the single biggest advantage that microdermabrasion has over alternative skin treatments is that a microdermabrasion patient can return to normal daily activities after receiving the treatment. Many other skin treatments used for the same skin conditions involve post-treatment swelling and require days off work. This makes microdermabrasion an ideal treatment for people wanting improved skin without disrupting their daily life over it.
