Microdermabration is effective in reducing fine lines, "crow's feet," age spots and acne scars. It stimulates the production of skin cells and collagen. It has proven to remove the dead cells from the skin and results in a gentle abrasion or "polishing" process.
Each treatment takes from 15-30 minutes. The number of treatments recommended for maximal results can range between 3 and 4, spaced from 1 week to 10 days apart. Maintenance of results requires periodic repeat treatments after the initial regimen is completed. Microdermabration may be combined with a light chemical peel to increase the effect.
