Microdermabrasion and dermabrasion are two most frequently used skin rejuvenation methods especially for those adults whose ageing signs have just started to appear.
Both these procedures work on the principle of abrading the skin to facilitate collagen production and hence cure the concerns.

The time for the wounds to heal takes anywhere between a few days to over a week.
Another form of Microdermabrasion called as Microdermabrasion Microparticles involves blowing abrasive microparticles over the affected surface to facilitate collagen boost. Usually no wounds get created in this process.
Microdermabrasion is effective for people having any of the following concerns:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven Pigmentation
- Sun tan or other forms of Sun Damage
- Skin Tightening
- Routine Skin Rejuvenation
Microdermabrasion is highly dependant on the experience of the dermatologist/therapist. If not done correctly, the treatment can result in hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, thickening of the skin and even scarring.
It is thus recommended that if the wound caused by the process becomes, red, swollen or itchy, medical help be sought.
The best effects from a Microdermabrasion are seen 24 – 48 hrs post treatment.
