Exfoliation is the process of gently removing the top layers of dead and dying skin cells, causing a stimulation of new skin cells. By removing the dead layer and replacing it with new cells you are also removing acne scars, age spots and damage in the epidermis. Microdermabrasion is a mild manual exfoliation, using a diamond tip wand to gently abrade the skin cells off and then suction them away. There is no downtime or discomfort with microdermabrasion. Your skin will be left softer, smoother, brighter and younger looking. The level of intensity and depth will be determined by your needs.
