The process of microdermabrasion is simple and effective. Microdermabrasion uses a machine, a device similar to a tiny vacuum cleaner which combines exfoliation and light skin resurfacing. As well as treating wrinkles and fine lines, microdermabrasion is also very effective on; enlarged pores, clogged pores, blackheads and whiteheads and uneven skin tone.

skin. Then, a handpiece connected to a suction device will be moved slowly over your skin surface in a light brushing motion. As the device is moved over your skin, the dead skin cells are gently removed.
