Everything you need to know about Microdermabrasion
If you’re suffering from acne scars, pigmentation or uneven skin tone yet exfoliating and products aren’t doing much for your skin- it may be time to bring out the big guns.
What is Microdermabrasion?
It has nothing to do with needles so you can scrape that from your mind ASAP. Unlike the name gives off, microdermabrasion is rather simple. It is a non- invasive, gentle process of deeply exfoliating your skin using crystals to remove dead and damaged skin cells.
The crystal or the diamond tip pretty much strikes the skin to remove its outer layer for a fine, smooth skin surface. Upon completion of the abrasive yet PAINLESS process, a vacuum suction whisks away the crystal residue and the unwanted abraded skin particles leaving your skin brighter, firmer and blemish-free.
What does Microdermabrasion do for your skin?

Important things to remember!
This facial rejuvenation has countless benefits but also has potential limitations for those with dark skin tones. It is always important to discuss with your aesthetician about your suitability before looking into microdermabrasion or any similar facial procedure. Last but not least, look after your skin from the UV with plenty of SPF for a long- lasting, healthy skin.
