PURE NEWS: Microdermabrasion - What is it? Microdermabrasion treatments are in general a procedure of applying a thin layer of a crystallized material on the external skin - resulting in skin rejuvenation. The skin is ultimately stimulated to create a fresh, elastic, young skin layer and thus ridding of all damaged skin layers. Microdermabrasion treatments are ideal for treating any sun damage, sagging, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, textured skin, dry knees, elbows, acne, spots and many other types of skin conditions.
