Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure that allows you to remove the surface layer of the skin, consisting of dead skin cells. In fact, it is a mechanical peeling of the skin with abrasives. In the salons, the procedure is carried out with the help of a special apparatus, from the tip of which a stream of air containing crystals of abrasive is pulled out under pressure (Fig.
