The concept of abrading the skin dates back as far as 1500 B.C. by Egyptian physicians. They used a type of sandpaper to smooth out scars. So, the idea of abrading the skin to improve the appearance has been around for a long time. Fast forward to Italy in 1985, and you have the beginnings of the modern process of microdermabrasion. The Italians first developed the treatment and then it was brought over to the American market in the mid-1990’s.
Microdermabrasion surface layers of the skin, stimulating an increase in collagen production and rejuvenation. Many patients see dramatic improvements in the tone, texture, and color of treated areas after just one treatment.*
Microdermabrasion is one of the top three chosen of commonly performed dermatology treatments in the United States, and its relatively low cost makes it a practical choice for patients with minor skin problems and early signs of aging.
