Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-surgical procedure that uses a spray of micro-crystals to remove the outermost layer of dead, dry skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. Dermabrasion is a more intensive procedure used to treat deeper facial lines, extreme sun damage, and scars.
Dermatologists use microdermabrasion to help unclog pores and clear acne. Also used in combination with gentle glycolic peels and medical acne extractions. Microderm can be helpful in treating melasma and other types of hyper pigmentation, as well as mild acne discoloration, pick marks, and very superficial or raised acne scar.
