Microdermabrasion adds unique value to therapeutic and cosmetic armamentarium.
Microdermabrasion is a simple, painless procedure that does not interfere with the normal activities of the patient.
It is non invasive, non-surgical based procedure for revitalizing and rejuvenating the skin.

The most important advantage of Microdermabrasion is that it can be successfully used on light or dark skin to treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees and hands.
It is generally indicated for:-

Optimal treatment recommendations are a series of 5 to 6 weekly microdermabrasion followed by maintenance, which may be once or six monthly.
