A Microdermabrasion Procedure Helps Exfoliate Skin

Posted .

Exfoliation is a natural process where upper layers of skin cells are shed, thus stimulating the production of new, healthy cells. The process also stimulates new collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, which gives your face a firm, more youthful appearance.

If you have used anti-aging products like retinol and Retin-A and you haven’t been satisfied with the results, you might want to talk to your cosmetic surgeon about microdermabrasion procedure.

During the procedure the surgeon pulls a light amount of suction through small glass tube lined with fine aluminum oxide crystals. As they move the tube over your face or hands it pulls a small amount of skin into the tub and removes the old, dead skin cells. This stimulates the exfoliation and skin regeneration process in the affected area.

Microdermabrasion can also help to reduce and manage minor moderate acne issues, improve skin texture and actually reduce the size of your pores.
