Microdermabrasion FAQs

It is a minimal to full epidermal laser peel that precisely removes the outermost layers of the skin. The procedure is individually tailored to the nature of the problem to be corrected:

  • Scars
  • Keratoses (pre-cancerous lesions)
  • Pigmentation problems
  • Overall sun damage
