what is the purpose of microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion can be used to rejuvenate the skin’s texture and tone. This procedure can reduce the appearance of sunburn, wrinkles, scarring from acne, age spots, skin texture, and other skin conditions.
To rejuvenate the skin, a special applicator is used with an abrasive edge to gently sand off the outer layer.
