Microdermal Abrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks. Microdermal Abrasion can improve age spots and black heads. It is one of the more recent skin-care techniques to have crossed over from Hollywood to the mainstream. It’s being advanced as an “instant facelift” — an effective alternative to costlier and more invasive procedures like Plastic surgery, Chemical peels and Botox injections. Recently, more and more men are trying it, instead of pursuing cosmetic surgery. Microdermal Abrasion is a general term for the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. It’s usually done to the face, chest, neck, arms or hands.
