Microdermabrasion is a skin treatment procedure that removes old, dead skin cells to reveal a younger and more refreshed skin layer. A gentler version of an older technique of dermabrasion, microdermabrasion is a process that uses tiny particles to carefully sand away old skin cells.
The procedure generally involves the use of a hand-held device that blasts microscopic crystals made of aluminum oxide at the skin. The crystals gently scrape away skin cells. The process can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour and has been described as feeling like a cat’s tongue. Discuss your goals with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Carl Lentz to determine if microdermabrasion is right for you.
