Dermabrasion helps to "refinish" the skin's top layers through a method of controlled mechanical scraping with the use of vacuum and aluminum particles. It is a simple, quick and convenient procedure that became very popular with patients showing the early signs of aging, sun exposure and other facial imperfections. Non-invasive and non-wounding to the skin's surface, the procedure entails virtually no discomfort, down time or recovery. Patients typically experience some redness for about an hour after the procedure.

In addition to the face, microdermabrasion can be successfully used on the neck, arms and hands. It is also beneficial for patients with darker skin types. This rejuvenation method is generally indicated for:

  • Dull, oily or leathery skin texture
  • Contracting enlarged pores
  • Exfoliating and suctioning clogged pores in acne cases
  • Polishing and reducing fine lines
  • Mild acne scarring
  • Mild pigment irregularities
  • Enhancing penetration of therapeutic agents
