Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a revolutionary skin restoration process. A non-surgical exfoliating procedure, for revitalizing and maintaining the skin’s appearance and smoothness. Originally coined as a “Lunch Time” approach to light skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion addresses a wide range of skin abnormalities less aggressively than resurfacing, allowing for less downtime following each treatment.

During the treatment a precise stream of very fine crystals are directed onto the skins surface. These crystals loosen the layer of dead skin cells that form on the surface. The microdermabrasion system then suctions away both the skin debris and the crystals to reveal fresh invigorated skin. Typically, only the uppermost layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, is removed.

Microdermabrasion can be used to treat:

  • dull or uneven skin color
  • relieving clogged pores and blackheads
  • softening general roughness or thickened patches of dead skin (e.g.
    elbows, feet)
  • refining the appearance of fine, crepey lines and large pores
  • removing surface skin debris to allow better absorption of topical
    medications

Microdermabrasion is a valuable skin care tool in and of itself, but does not take the place of either surgical procedures or therapeutic skin care products. It is ideally used in combination with a full skin care program, Chemical Peels, IPL, Botulium toxins of hyaluroinic filler.
