Microderm-abrasion is a quick, non-invasive procedure used to resurface the skin. It is sometimes called a “lunchtime peel”. This relatively new and popular procedure gently removes only the very top layers of damaged skin by “exfoliating and smoothing” them with tiny crystals. The technique exfoliates and gently resurfaces the skin, promoting the formation of new smoother, clearer skin. It is usually performed on the face and neck, but can be performed on any part of the body (such as the backs of the hands).
