Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the effects of aging. It is a natural way to evenly and safely exfoliate the skin without chemicals or laser. The treatment is applied using a device like a fine sandblaster to spray tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with a vacuum like suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin and to stimulate collagen production.
