Microdermabrasion works on all skin types and colors. It makes subtle changes, causing no skin color change or scarring. It helps remove thicker, uneven outer layers. It can also be helpful in combating light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks.
In microdermabrasion, tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin to gently remove the outer layer of your skin. This technique is less aggressive than dermabrasion, so you don't need numbing medicine. It is basically an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that leaves skin looking softer and brighter.
After microdermabrasion, your skin will be pink and feel dry and tight (like sunburn or windburn) for about 24 hours. Use moisturizer. Some types of makeup should not be applied for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
