Microdermabrasion is a popular skin care treatment found in day spas that uses light abrasion to remove dry, dead skin cells to give skin a healthier, more youthful appearance. Relatively painless, microdermabrasion removes sun damaged skin and removes or reduces scars and dark spots on the skin. Microdermabrasion is also used to treat acne, but treatments must be repeated periodically to be effective, and microdermabrasion should not be used by anyone who has taken the acne medication Accutane in the last 12 months.
Because microdermabrasion treatments can be very expensive, and are not affordable by many people's standards, the use of home microdermabrasion systems such as the DermaNew has become very popular. A home microdermabrasion system is relatively inexpensive and allows the user to apply treatments at times that are more convenient for them. Home microdermabrasion kits typically include the microdermabrasion crystals (sometimes in a cream form) as well as cleansers, lotions, and skin conditioners to provide an entire skin care regimen to go along with the microdermabrasion treatment.
Popular in expensive day spas, microdermabrasion is an effective way to improve the look and overall health of skin.
