Microdermabrasion or MDA, is the process in which the skin is exfoliated (removal of dead skin cells) by means of two possible mechanisms.

The Procedure:

The first procedure is where using a diamond tipped probe gentle exfoliation of the skin is done. At the same time the probe sucks away the dead cells using vacuum.
The second process uses crystals which are emitted by the probe to rub away the outer layer of the skin. Even in this case the crystals are immediately vacuumed off by the probe.
The skin after treatment turns red on a temporary basis and typically returns to normal within 24 hours.

Results Expected:

There is a reduction in the above marked conditions, However for best efficacy the procedure will be clubbed along with other procedures by the dermatologist.

Frequency of Treatment:

The frequency of treatment varies between 2 weeks and 1 month and is advised by the doctor based on the condition of the skin and the result that can be expected.

This process is also called skin resurfacing or skin polishing. Skin resurfacing or skin polishing is also achieved by other procedures such as use of Lasers. Please feel free to contact us for more details of these procedures or visit our fully equipped clinic located at Powai, Mumbai.
