Microdermabrasion is a simple, non-invasive cosmetic enhancement treatment that rejuvenates skin on the face or body.

It is used to treat and lighten scars, skin discoloration, sun damaged skin and stretch marks. It may not remove prominent acne scars or other deep facial indentations completely.

Microdermabrasion can be used as a series of between five and 12 treatment sessions every seven to 14 days. Visible results usually begin after four or five sessions. This treatment may also be incorporated into a regular skin maintenance plan, with monthly or quarterly treatments.

Microdermabrasion is quick and offers a good alternative to more invasive and expensive procedures, as cosmetic surgery, chemical peels and wrinkling relaxing injections.

Microdermabrasion was the fifth most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments performed in the US in 2011, with over 900,000 procedures and a growth rate of over 9 percent from 2010.
