A: Uneven skin tone is the result of a skin disorder called hyperpigmentation. It can be evened out through several sessions of microdermibration. The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck.

Q: What Are The Advantages Associated With Microdermabration?

A: One major advantage is the minimum risks and side effects associated with micro abrasion Unlike dermabrasion or laser skin resurfacing, microdermbrasion takes no more than 30-60 minutes and can be successfully used on the face as well as the body (neck, chest, back and hands). If time or money is an issue, the procedure is also available as a cheap home microdermabrasion product (well known brands include Neutrogena, Mary Kay, L'Oreal, Oil of Olay, Homedics, etc).

It can be performed on all skin types and colors without risks and side effects.

Q: Can You Perform Microbrasion On Yourself?

A: You can perform micoderm abrasion on yourself as long as you use a special at-home kit. Professional microderm abrasions can only be performed by trained professionals. Because it can cause damage to the skin if not used properly, microderm abrasion machines should only be operated by people with specific theoretical and practical training.
