Microderm, also known as microdermabrasion, uses tiny crystals that are sprayed onto the skin to gently remove the outer layer of the epidermis. Microderm is a gentler alternative to dermabrasio and does not require any numbing medicine. In essence, it is a deep exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that can leave your skin looking brighter and feeling softer. Microderm also has a quicker recovery time then more abrasive procedures such as dermabrasion and chemical peels.
Microderm is ideal for treating minor skin conditions, blemishes and texture issues. It can also help address scarring left from acne. As a quick healing skin intervention, microderm is an easy way to rejuvenate the skin and give it a more youthful glow without the long downtime of more abrasive measures. If you think microderm would be the right treatment for you, speak with your dermatologist to explore your options.
We recommend consulting a specialist to help determine if microderm is the best treatment option for you.
