It helps to get rid of peach fuzz, improves color, texture and smoothness of skin, reduces appearance of acne scars, helps skincare products to penetrate deeper into the skin, unclogs pores and and gives skin glowing appearance and healthier look.
During the treatment a sterile, surgical blade is used to gently graze the outer layer of the skin, which consists of dead skin cells.
