Myth #1: Microdermabrasion is not Safe

In the hands of a skilled dermatologist, Microdermabrasion is completely safe. The treatment is a common, non-surgical procedure with minimal risk involved. When done properly, it can significantly enhance one’s complexion without affecting deeper layers of the skin.

Myth #3: Microdermabrasion Sessions are Lengthy

Each Microdermabrasion session takes between 15 and 30 minutes. Due to its short session-length, it is an efficient treatment that can fit into anyone’s schedule.
