Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that uses fine crystals and a vacuum to remove dead skin cells. It can be used on the face, neck, chest, back and hands.
The aim is to reduce fine lines, minor scars, wrinkles and age spots, and make the skin smoother and younger looking. You may need more than 1 treatment.
Microdermabrasion should not cause any skin colour changes or scarring. It does not work for more significant scarring, stretch marks or deep wrinkles.
It may also not be suitable for everyone. Your practitioner will be able to tell you if microdermabrasion is suitable for you or whether an alternative treatment would be better.
