Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps
repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the
effects of aging. The plastic surgeon uses a device like a
fine sandblaster to spray tiny crystals across the face, mixing
gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer
of skin. As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, more
than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine
wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.
