Everybody has heard that it is good to exfoliate their facial skin from time to time and professional microdermabrasion is one of the best ways to do this. "Microderm" is a procedure performed in many aesthetic physician offices to remove the top layer of sun-damaged and dead skin cells. While it may have little effect on deep wrinkles or major scars, getting rid of this outer layer (the stratum corneum) can be an effective way to freshen up your skin and achieve a healthier, younger appearance.
Microdermabrasion - Smoother Skin, Fast
The simplest explanation of how the microdermabrasion process works is that an abrasive surface is used to smooth out the top layers of the skin, similar to how sand paper would be used to smooth out a piece of wood. The idea of "sanding" your face may sound unpleasant at first but many people that have undergone the procedure describe it as a painless or even an enjoyable experience.
