Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure where a handheld device is used to gently remove the top layer of your skin. To perform this treatment, your skincare specialist may use one of two techniques. She may use a device with an abrasive surface to sand away imperfections in the skin, or she may opt for a device equipped with a vacuum that sprays fine particles of sodium bicarbonate or aluminum oxide and then suctions away the outer layer of skin.

If you live in Monroe, NC, and wish to be considered for microdermabrasion, contact Dr. Awa Igbinadolor at St. Mary's Medical Clinic for an appointment. Read on to learn about the benefits of microdermabrasion.
