Microdermabrasion is a technique in which the surface of the face is treated with tiny exfoliating crystals to remove the outer layer of your skin. These crystals are sprayed on the face in order to reduce the problems like dull skin, wrinkles, acne scars, pox marks, improve skin texture etc.
These micro crystal particles is blasted across the face using a device called ‘skin vacuum cleaner’to create a smoother layer of skin over the treated one. These crystals are made up of aluminum salt, sodium chloride (table salt) and sodium bicarbonate. It is a quick treatment with very less side effects. When the skin is treated, it becomes pink but then fully recovers within 24 hours.
As compared to dermabrasion, microdermabrasion is safer for people of all skin types and colours. Microdermabrasion makes changes to the skin without causing scarring or discolouration.
