Updated on May 1, 2012

If you are troubled over the fine lines or wrinkles which are creeping on your face, facial microdermabrasion might be the best facial rejuvenation treatment for you. But what is microdermabrasion? Can it eliminate wrinkles or fine lines completely?

What Is Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that gently skin away the superficial layer of dead and dull skin with the help of micro aluminium oxide crystals. In abrading motion of the handheld device, the very fine and hard crystals blasts away the top layer of dead skin cells on the skin. Next, the microdermabrasion machine will vacuum away the microcrystals and dead skin debris, leaving your skin with a radiant glow.

Causes Of Fine Lines And Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles are natural signs of aging which we can't prevent ot stop. Collagen, the most important building block of skin gets weaker as we get older. With decreased collagen production, our skin gets less elastic and drier which contributes to the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Over-exposure to the sun can also lead to fine lines wrinkles as the sun's rays decrease other dermal proteins in your skin as well.

In fact, most people will see their fine lines and wrinkles setting in at ages 30 and above because of slower rate of new skin cells regeneration. At this age stage, the rate of skin cellular renewal slows down to 60 days which results in an increasing amount of dead skin cells remaining on the top layer of the skin. As our facial muscles perform repetitive movements, the dull and tired looking complexion makes fine lines and wrinkles more prominent.

Facial Microdermabrasion - Will It Remove Your Fine Lines And Wrinkles

This has the effect of revealing the fresh and baby smooth skin underneath. With several microdermabraion treatments, it speeds up the natural rate of skin cell renewal which improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment also boosts your skin's ability to absorb fine lines or wrinkles treatment products.
