What is it?
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical , noninvasive procedure that exfoliates your skin, removing a layer of dead skin cells/dirt and excess oils. With this layer gone, your body replaces these cells with new, healthier ones (cell-turnover) , leaving your skin softer and brighter. It’s the natural cycle of your cells, only sped up. The tiny crystals used in microdermabrasion strategically remove cells from the stratum corneum layer of your outer skin, the epidermis!
The function of this layer of skin is to provide a barrier between the deeper layers of your skin and the outside world. Therefor it is no surprise that most of our damage from the sun, pollution and chemicals are located in the stratum corneum layer! Our bodies interprets the microdermabrasion’s removal of stratum corneum cells as it would a wound or cut. Hence our bodies rush to replace them with new and healthy cells, which leads to a more even skin tone and faster cell turnover-leaving you glowing!
