Most commonly, microdermabrasion uses two parts: an exfoliating material like crystals or diamond flakes and a machine based suction to gently lift up the skin during exfoliation. Microdermabrasions are used at SMOOTH as a pre-treatment preparation for the skin or as a part of a skin health maintenance regimen plan for comedonal and/or acneic prone skin types.
Microdermabrasions are a great starting point on your roadmap to healthy functioning skin. They leave no downtime and begin the cell renewal process by eliminating the outermost layers of the Epidermis, encouraging the basement epidermal cells to regenerate. For those who are experiencing pigmented and erythemic acne scars, several microdermabrasion treatments may be required for a more aggressive exfoliation treatment than those that can be performed at home. Each treatment ultimately pushes the more superficial pigmented scars closer to the surface, eventually eliminating them completely.
