Dermabrasion is an in-clinic, non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment. It is an effective medical method for deep medical cleansing of face, chest and back as well as for rejuvenation of tired skin. Its suitable for all skin types irrespective of gender and age. It is recommended for people with scars, dark spots and discolorations, oily skin, photoaging, fine wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and mouth. It works by stimulating blood circulation and fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, essential components for the youthfulness of the skin. Furthermore, around the eyes edemas are reduced due to improved lymphatic circulation.
The treatment consists of 2 stages, the exfoliation stage with the corresponding material used (microcrystals or diamond tips that glide on the skin and remove dead epidermal cells) and the stage of the vacuum suction. Very small microcrystals are launched and aspirated by a special device onto the surface of interest, removing dead skin cells and excess sebum. Diamond tip removes the superficial layer of the skin without a trace of injury, removing at the same time pollutants and sebum excess. The black spots are removed and open pores are reduced.

Often the treatment is completed by applying an anti-oxidant vitamin C solution to obtain a calm, fresh and refreshed face.
