Synopsis: Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical way to rejuvenate and refresh your skin revealing a less blemished fresh layer of skin. Over the years, sun exposure and aging begin to leave their marks on your skin. Other imperfections like acne scars and enlarged pores can show on your skin as well. Microdermabrasion, or dermabrasion, can soften the signs your life experiences have left on your skin.
