Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion machines can buff and polish the skin using a stream of fine crystals or a diamond tip. Patients with fine lines, uneven pigmentation or clogged pores may benefit most from a series of microdermabrasion treatments.
Microdermabrasion is also recommended for patients with melasma. It is an excellent procedure to help maximize the benefit of a regular topical regimen, keep skin feeling smooth and helps pigment look more even. How often you should get a microdermabrasion facial depends on your skincare needs.
