FAQs about Microdermabrasion

More and more people have turned to microdermabrasion in Virginia Beach, VA, as their spa treatment of choice to improve skin texture, brightness, and renewal. Microdermabrasion is a skin-exfoliating treatment that is low risk with a rapid recovery time (compared to the other more invasive skin resurfacing methods). Because microdermabrasion results in a superficial depth of skin removal, it works best to improve conditions on the skin’s surface, such as fine lines, early sun damage, age spots, acne, and superficial scarring.

  1. It is an easy, quick, and painless cosmetic treatment with minimal risk and no downtime.
