Microdermabrasion is a simple and effective process that mechanically removes the stratum corneum with a diamond or plastic tip, and removes the dead cells with vacuum suction. 

It's usually done to the face, chest, neck, arms or hands. Before we can understand how microdermabrasion does what it does, it's important to understand how skin works.

Microdermabrasion is one of the more recent skin-care techniques that is being hailed as an advanced as an "instant facelift" - an effective alternative to costlier and more invasive procedures like plastic surgery, chemical peels and Botox injections. Recently, more and more men are trying it, instead of pursuing cosmetic surgery.  It is a non-invasive treatment designed to improve the overall texture, tone and clarity of the skin, while restoring the skin’s colour and elasticity.  It smoothes out, refreshes and regenerates the skin.
