Your skin is made up of two main layers. The epidermis is the layer closest to your environment and surroundings, and the dermis, which is underneath the epidermis.
However, there is a topmost layer called the stratum corneum, which acts as a sort of shield between your skin and your surroundings. It keeps most molecules from getting through. This is where most minor skin imperfections are located.
Microdermabrasion is mostly used on your skin’s topmost layer. Going any deeper into the skin’s layers can damage and cause permanent effects on your skin.
Microdermabrasion will cleanse your skin deeply. You may think that your skin is clean enough, because you wash your face twice a day with facial cream or your pores don’t secrete oil, but you are quite mistaken.
There is a proven fact about skin care that over-washing your face – even twice a day,leaving your face feeling refreshed and tight, can strip your face of its natural oils and causing irritation and dehydration.
Fortunately, microdermabrasion is an effective, non-chemical and non-surgical treatment. It is one of the lesser-aggressive skin treatments that can reduce minor skin imperfections, such as fine lines, mild acne and an uneven skin tone.
