Skin Polishing Treatment
Microdermabrasion, popularly known as 'body polishing', is a simple and safe, office cosmetic procedure that has gained popularity in the last 5 years. In this procedure aluminum oxide crystals or other abrasive substances are blown onto the face and then vacuumed off, using a single handpiece. This procedure has been widely utilized for a variety of cosmetic objectives, including the improvement of photoaging, hyperpigmentation, acne scars and stretch marks. Despite its widespread use, little is known about its actual mechanism of action. A few published studies suggest that patients and physicians alike report a mild benefit when microdermabrasion is utilized for photoaging.
