Does microdermabrasion stimulate the skin to become more elastic and younger looking? Or is it just removing the outer layer of skin for a temporary change in appearance?
The answer to your question has not been answered scientifically and probably never will be. Microdermabrasion only removes the outer dead layer of skin, which results in a temporary improvement, but the procedure is usually combined with the use of topical skin care products which penetrate more efficiently after the procedure and can improve collagen thickness and elasticity.
