Microdermabrasion is a popular cosmetic procedure because it is effective, affordable, and convenient. It works on both the outer layer of the skin (called the epidermis) as well as the deep layer of the skin (the dermis).
The epidermis is the layer most exposed to environmental elements. It’s a set of dead skin cells on top of another layer of cells that are in the process of maturing. The topmost layer of the epidermis is called the stratum corneum. The effects of microdermabrasion all take place at the stratum corneum level, which is home to many minor skin imperfections like fine lines and blemishes.
Microdermabrasion can help treat a variety of common skin issues and concerns, including:
In addition to this, microdermabrasion can also help stimulate collagen production in the skin. Collagen helps tighten and strengthen the skin, which helps smooth the skin’s surface for a more youthful and radiant appearance. Many people receive a microdermabrasion facial multiple times a year to maintain the beauty of their facial skin.
