There are a variety of conditions that can affect the appearance of our skin, and perhaps even affect how we feel about ourselves. Problems like acne scars, pox marks, tattoo scars, wrinkles, and age spots. Microdermabrasion is an effective, non-surgical procedure which gently resurfaces the skin, smoothing out many of these skin abnormalities and restoring the look and texture of your skin. Microdermabrasion exfoliation is performed with medical grade mineral crystals or diamond tip which brushes the skin’s surface with the aid of a gentle vacuum. This action removes dead and damaged cells at the skin’s surface. By eliminating these surface cells with microdermabrasion, the skin is left soft and supple while forcing the regeneration of new skin cells.
Microdermabrasion have been documented to effectively minimize the appearance of:
- Fine lines
- Sun damaged skin
- Dull and congested skin
- Uneven skin tones and textural damaged skin
- Enlargened pores
After a microdermabrasion treatment, the skin may feel tight. Some individuals experience light flaking of the skin, therefore, it is important to use a good moisturizer as advised by our skin therapists. Otherwise there are minimal side effects, which is why microdermabrasion is often described as “the lunch hour” procedure. Depending on the condition of your skin, our skin therapists may advise multiple treatments and/or combining microdermabrasion with Chemical peels, Photo Rejuvenation, and Laser Facial treatments for optimal results. Microdermabrasion facials are usually kept at 2-3 week intervals and maintenance treatments are usually performed once a month. Microdermabrasion treatments are approximately 45 minutes in length.
