Microdermabrasion


 

A non-invasive treatment designed and used to gently resurface and exfoliate the skin while promoting the formation of new, softer, cleaner, smoother skin. It can be administered as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with enzymes or low level peels for deeper skin rejuvenating results. Recommended to be done every 3 weeks for best results.

STEP IT UP

Microdermabrasion is performed to smooth the texture of the skin and minimize discoloration by removing damaged cells to reveal fresh, invigorated skin.  Step it up with application of an enzyme or chemical peel! Enhancing your treatment aids in strengthening and brightening your skin while also providing excellent anti-acne and antibacterial benefits. By stimulating the production of new cells, this process reveals fresh, smoother, more radiant skin.

AGE & SUN DAMAGE

Our skin always needs freshening up to care of dead skin cells and sun or age-related damage. The facial skin cells die, affecting its appearance. In addition, age, sun, and other factors may cloud our complexion. Microdermabrasion is an effective and minimally invasive treatment that addresses these skin issues.

NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical treatment that our skin care experts use to clean, freshen, and rejuvenate your skin. It is used to treat light scarring, discoloration and sun damage, and can be used to lessen the appearance of stretch marks, among other conditions.

REMOVES THE TOP LAYER OF THE SKIN

Microdermabrasion is used to remove the top layer of the skin, which is composed of dead cells. A minimally abrasive instrument is used to gently sand the skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. The instrument targets and exfoliates the dead cells in the most superficial layer of the skin and then sprays a stream of fine crystals directly on your skin, which removes the surface layers leaving a smooth, fresh rejuvenated skin.

REJUVENATES AGED SKIN

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment designed to treat skin hyperpigmentation, remove fine lines and wrinkles and soften scar tissue. It can also help refresh dull, devitalized, blemished, congested and aged skin. Results may vary in each case (depending on your skin condition, age etc.)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MICRODERMABRASION

How Is The Procedure Done?

The skin is washed to remove excess oil, dirt, and any other pollutants. Then, a medical professional targets a stream of fine aluminum oxide crystals over the area. The crystals wash away dead skin cells, which the vacuum then picks up with gentle suction. This promotes the growth of collagen and new, rejuvenated skin.

Does Microdermabrasion Hurt?

The procedure may be a little uncomfortable but shouldn’t hurt. However, the skin does have a tendency to be a bit tender post procedure.

When Will I See My Results?

Microdermabrasion produces significant results almost immediately, and recovery time is typically very brief.

Is There Downtime Following My Treatment?

One of the advantages of Microdermabrasion is that it has zero downtime.  Barring any unforeseen circumstances, you can return to your normal routine and apply cosmetics directly after treatment.
