Microdermabrasion is a quick and convenient process that leaves you with refreshed, younger-looking skin. Microdermabrasion is like taking an extremely fine sand blaster that gently removes the top layer of the skin to promote new skin growth.

The treatment typically lasts a half-hour and there isn’t any down time. Microdermabrasion is a less aggressive version of the skin treatment dermabrasion. Using either a hand-held device or diamond-tipped wand, microdermabrasion involves blasting crystal-like flakes to exfoliate the skin. The process is non-invasive and generally painless, with some people reporting a gentle scratching sensation.

The procedure can eliminate age spots, blackheads, and dark pigmentation, and can reduce stretch marks and fine lines as well as wrinkles. Consult with an experienced practitioner like Dr. Perhez Jaffer to discuss how microdermabrasion may help you.
