Microdermabrasion is a superficial skin peeling preformed with sodium bicarbonate crystals (similar to salt). No anesthesia is required. Peeling may be notice 1-2 days after treatment. A slight pinkness of the skin may be noticed for an hour or two after treatment. Generally, 5-6 treatments are done 1-2 weeks apart. The skin is left refreshed and softer with repeated treatments, and maintenance treatments. It helps exfoliate the skin. It is not meant to eliminate wrinkles or age spots as the level treated is the superficial skin.
