Skin polishing or microdermabrasion is a procedure that involves removing superficial dead layers of the skin to reveal the underlying ‘fresh’ layer of skin and help stimulate fresh cell growth. This is among the most popular, proven and tested procedures.
This is a procedure that can be done on any part of the body that has uneven skin tone, rough texture, marks, etc. and not just be limited to the face or neck. Body polishing can be done on your back, hands, legs, feet, dark underarms, etc.
Also, this treatment benefits people with all skin tones and complexions.
InUrSkn is one of the largest skin clinics offering services like skin polishing in Powai, Mumbai.
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.
This procedure is also called skin polishing. Sometimes this procedure is called skin resurfacing, but that is in fact incorrect. This procedure does not substantially change the texture or smoothness of the skin. Skin Rejuvenation procedures that help in true resurfacing of skin are microneedling and fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment.
