Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a handheld device to gently exfoliate the outer layer of the skin. It helps to improve the texture and appearance of the skin by removing dead skin cells, stimulating cell turnover, and promoting the growth of new, healthier skin cells. Microdermabrasion can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including dullness, uneven skin tone, fine lines, and mild acne scars.
