If you haven't faced the world with a fresh face for a while then it's about time for microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion is a facial freshening technique that helps remove damaged skin cells. Dead cells are stripped away with a microdermabrasion device that resembles a fine sandblaster. During this non-surgical cosmetic procedure, the device sprays tiny crystals - either chemicals or abrasive agents - in a fine dust across the face. The device also has gentle polishing and suction functions to wipe away the dead outer layer of skin.

Microdermabrasion is performed by an aesthetician. Each treatment takes about 30-minutes to an hour to complete. Typically, more than one treatment is needed, within a 5 to 12 week period, to diminish facial wrinkles and improve the aged appearance of skin. Microdermabrasion technology is also an effective way to diminish age spots, crow's feet and acne scarring. The results can last for between 3 and 6weeks after the procedure.

Microdermabrasion treatment has almost no side effects associated with it. The process is generally fast and safe when performed by a qualified aesthetician. Microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment for individuals with sensitive skin whose skin reacts poorly to other chemical cosmetic procedures. In order to increase your skin's cherubic glow, microdermabrasion can be performed with a chemical peel.

Each microdermabrasion treatment typically costs between $250 and $300. But keep in mind that patients are charged this dollar amount per session. A series of microdermabrasion treatments are needed to experience the full exfoliating effect.
