Micro-dermabrasion is effective in reducing fine lines, “crow’s feet,” age spots and acne scars. It stimulates the production of skin cells and collagen. It has proven to be a very popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure.
The micro-dermabrasionequipment features a hand piece which emits crystals onto the surface of the skin, resulting in a gentle abrasion or “polishing” process. Each treatment needs half an hour to an hour, with each treatment spaced two to three weeks apart. The number of treatments recommended for maximal results range between five and twelve. Maintenance of results requires periodic repeat treatments after the initial regimen is completed. Microdermabrasion may be combined with a light chemical peel to increase the effect.
