Microdermabrasion was developed as a therapeutic way to treat the scars of burned victims and smooth out their raised skin. Doctors rapidly found drastic cosmetic improvement in their skin, and consequently, this procedure was reclassified as a spa treatment in the U.S. in 1998 after rigorous clinical studies proved its effectiveness and safety.
Using a fine jet of aluminum oxide crystals to gently and painlessly exfoliate the skin, microdermabrasion resurfaces the upper layers of the skin while a special micro vacuum extracts the crystals along with the dead skin cells. As the procedure eliminates the top layer of dead skin cells, the development of new skin cells is increased and the growth of collagen and elastin is stimulated.
Microdermabrasion refreshes the skin and eliminates the trace of acne scars and fine wrinkles. It also improves skin texture and color by carefully and delicately removing the topmost layer of the dead skin, leaving the skin more elegant and radiant.
