Microdermabrasion is an effective and popular treatment for skin cleansing and rejuvenation. The process is non-invasive, mechanical exfoliation of the superficial layers of the skin using crystal particles to exfoliate dead skin, smooth skin texture, unclog the pores, and clean the skin’s surface. The crystals are applied to the skin using a vacuum that removes dead skin cells. This helps greatly with managing black heads. Microdermabrasion works well for virtually all skin types and produces subtle changes without causing scarring or coloration changes to the skin. Patients seeking to treat cosmetic skin problems such as scars, stretch marks, keloids or severe acne scarring will not get the desired results with microdermabrasion. However, before receiving treatment at Dr. Nikko’s office, he will analyze your skin, discuss your goals with you, and recommend a treatment that will provide the best patient outcome.
