Microdermabrasion skin polishing treatment
Microdermabrasion works well for damaged skin. Skin is made up of different layers Upper Epidermis, Middle Dermis, & subcutaneous Layer. The epidermis is again divided into 5 layers.

Mechanism of action:-
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure which uses a handheld device that sucks up the dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin thus allowing newer skin cells to come to the surface. During this procedure, it produces changes in the dermal matrix constituents & results in improvement in skin counter irregularities.
Microdermabrasion helps to improve the texture of the skin by accelerating the process of skin exfoliation.
With microdermabrasion, we can allow different skin lightening agents to penetrate deep into the dermis, which helps to reduce pigmentation. Different skin hydrating agents can also get penetrated deeper into the skin to give instant glow on skin.
