A microdermabrasion procedure using a handheld device against the surface of your skin provides gentle abrasion, or “polishing” to remove the outer layer of dead cells. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, and melasma. Five to twelve microdermabrasion treatments at one to two-week intervals is recommended for the best results.
After microdermabrasion, the treated skin may be pink, but this will usually fade away within a few days. You can apply makeup soon after undergoing microdermabrasion to conceal any visible signs of the treatment. Microdermabrasion recovery and results are among the most popular of all the noninvasive facial treatments available today. This treatment can be used on the face, neck, hands, or body.
