Does microdermabrasion stimulate the skin to become more elastic and younger looking? Or is it just removing the outer layer of skin for a temporary change in appearance?
Microdermabrasion is a superficial treatment designed to remove the outermost layers of skin (the dead skin). Removing these layers helps brighten your skin and really gets rid of the dull appearance you are likely disturbed by. Microdermabrasion is not a deep skin treatment and will not stimulate collagen to tighten or regenerate.
