About Face offers Microdermabrasion (MDA), a highly effective non-invasive treatment for body polishing. It can be used as an alternative or adjunct to laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels. It is a quick and a gentle method of skin rejuvenation for patients of all skin types and skin tones.
Microdermabrasion is a skin polishing procedure which uses a machine to propel a fine stream of inert microscopic crystals to exfoliate the epidermal layer of the skin. This smoothens and refreshes the skin.
We recommend body polishing using microdermabrasion in case of
- Sun damaged skin
- Enlarged or clogged pores
- Pimple and acne marks and other skin blemishes
- Age spots and superficial pigmentation
- Stretch marks
Microdermabrasion can be performed without anesthesia can be done within 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the areas treated and the skin problem being addressed.
A softer, smoother and brighter complexion with a considerable reduction in the epidermal damage related to age, sun exposure or skin trauma can be observed after treatment of the face or body with microdermabrasion. Improvements are seen after each treatment session, with optimal results witnessed after an average of 5 to 6 sessions. Conditions such as stretch marks and acne scars may, however, take a longer time to respond.
