The goal of microdermabrasion (MDA) is to remove dead skin from the face in order to promote the growth of healthy skin.
Similar to the workings of a fine sandblaster, hospitals use a device that sprays sterilized ultra-fine aluminum oxide crystals over the face, along with suctioning off the old and dead skin cells. Skin cells are stimulated to produce new layers of skin when this old layer is gently removed.
It is a completely painless and noninvasive procedure.
The following conditions can be treated with microdermabrasion:

1 week prior to treatment, avoid getting under the sun, putting tanning creams on your skin, and going for waxing. For 3 days before your Microdermabrasion appointment, you should stay away from using any exfoliating creams and mask treatments on your skin. Ensure your face is clean and makeup-free before the procedure.

Microdermabrasion may cause the following side effects
Is microdermabrasion suitable for me?
Ages 12 to 65+ can use MDA without any concerns for their skin type. Both men and women can benefit from this treatment. This is the perfect option for busy people who need a treatment they can schedule over their lunch hour.
What are microdermabrasion treatments good for?
Microdermabrasion is effective in preventing and correcting the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, unsightly scars from acne, pigmentation caused by natural aging and over-exposure to sun. Other than that, people with uneven skin tone or those suffering from acne problems, oily or dull looking skin may also benefit from this treatment.
How often can I have microdermabrasion?
Your doctor will advise the ideal frequency for subsequent microdermabrasion sessions based on your individual skin type. In general, patients could come back every 10-14 days for reparative treatments. You can receive lighter treatments after an interval of seven days apart, and we also recommend a maintenance session every four weeks.
Natural cell turnover occurs every 28 days. During the treatment, the skin’s protective layer (stratum corneum) is removed on purpose to send the basal skin layer into a state of shock, thereby quickly producing more daughter cells through replication.
As a result of this rapid cell proliferation, the thickness of the skin layers will be increased and collagen and elastin production will be boosted.
