Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a mild resurfacing technique that uses a diamond tip wand to rejuvenate the skin and carrying the valuable acne treatment. This treatment procedure treats acne by removing the excess oils, bacteria, and blackheads present in the skin. This is done by removing the top layer of the skin and boosting the growth of new and healthy skin, which is responsible for producing a clearer and creamier complexion.
