Microdermabrasion or Derma Peel, is a powerful, non-invasive procedure using a fine grit or non-bristle tip device to smooth away the surface layer of skin, most commonly on the face, chest and neck, removing dead cells and mechanically exfoliating the top layer of skin. This top layer of skin acts as a barrier to the layers beneath which block natural skin replenishment. Microdermabrasion removes that layer of skin decreasing the appearance of dark spots, freckles, and overall uneven skin tone as well as reducing wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars. Removing the dead skin stimulates new growth and helps encourage natural collagen formation to effectively give the skin a smoother more youthful appearance.
The procedure is performed in a physician’s office, and there is little to no discomfort and no downtime afterward.
