What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion : Charizma Salon in Naperville

Microdermabrasion is a type of exfoliating skin care treatment that uses fine crystals or a diamond-tipped wand to remove dead skin cells and improve the overall appearance of the skin. Microdermabrasion is often used to improve the texture and tone of the skin and address specific skin concerns, such as acne, sun damage, and aging.

During a microdermabrasion treatment, a device equipped with a diamond-tipped wand or a stream of fine crystals is used to gently exfoliate the skin. The wand or crystals are passed over the skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing the healthier, smoother skin underneath. Microdermabrasion is generally considered a safe and non-invasive treatment, with minimal downtime required.

Microdermabrasion is thought to have a variety of skin care benefits, including:

  1. Improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: Microdermabrasion can stimulate collagen production and improve the elasticity of the skin, which can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. Reducing acne: The exfoliation action of microdermabrasion can help to unclog pores and remove excess oil and dead skin cells, which can help to improve the appearance of acne.
  3. Improving the absorption of skin care products: Microdermabrasion can help to increase the penetration of skin care products into the skin, which can enhance their effectiveness.
  4. Reducing sun damage: Microdermabrasion can stimulate the production of new skin cells and promote the repair of damaged skin, which can help to reduce the appearance of sun damage.
