Microdermabrasion – Philadelphia Skin Rejuvenation
Exfoliation is the process where the oldest dead skin cells are removed in order to reveal a healthier, younger layer beneath. One of the most popular exfoliation techniques is microdermabrasion. It is a more gentle skin treatment than dermabrasion and has been shown to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Consult with an experienced practitioner like Dr. Ryan Hoffman to determine if microdermabrasion is in line with your aesthetic goals. The way microdermabrasion works is by gently sanding away the top layer of the skin using microscopic crystals. A small hand piece is guided across the skin as it sprays particles made of sodium bicarbonate or sometimes diamond. The procedure can last anywhere between 5 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated.
