As the human body’s largest organ, the skin is a vital part of our overall health and beauty. Taking care of your skin can be the difference between looking years younger or years older. One of the classic skin care treatments that can leave you looking refreshed and rejuvenated is microdermabrasion. A gentler version of the older technique dermabrasion, microdermabrasion is an exfoliation treatment that removes dead skin. Microdermabrasion is a skin care procedure that works on all types and hues of skin. The procedure is gentle enough that it doesn’t require any anesthesia. There is some pinkness of the skin in the first 24 hours, but it is temporary. Microdermabrasion may be an alternative for those who are interested in facial rejuvenation but aren’t yet ready for the more extensive work of a facelift or other invasive procedures. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine if you have further questions about skin care.
