Microdermabrasion
(often referred to as Microderm) is a cosmetic procedure popular in day spas, doctors’ practices, and medical spas in which the stratum corneum (dead outermost surface of the skin) is partially or completely removed by light abrasion; different methods include mechanical abrasion from jets of zinc oxide or aluminum oxide crystals, fine organic particles, or a roughened surface; particles are removed off through the wand/handpiece through which the abrasive particles come; the term dermabrasion itself refers to the more severe medical procedure carried out under general or light anesthesia
