Microdermabrasion Skin Treatment

MicrodermabrasionThe skin is our body’s largest organ. Every day, we shed old skin cells from the epidermis to make way for new ones. When you notice dry skin, exfoliation and moisturizing techniques are recommended to help reveal a fresh layer of skin. Is microdermabrasion the right facial treatment for you?

What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion, one of our aesthetic procedures, is a skin resurfacing treatment. It is quick and painless, with virtually no recovery, down time or anesthesia required! How does it work? First, the skin is thoroughly cleansed of any dirt, oil or makeup. Then, using ultra-fine crystals, our clinicians gently “polish” the surface of the skin while stimulating the production of skin cells and collagen. Your dead skin cells are “suctioned” from the surface to reveal a rejuvenated face. The procedure is virtually painless, but patients may feel a slight tickling sensation. After each treatment, you will notice a healthy youthful glow, leaving your skin with a soft, smooth and refreshed feeling and look.

Who Should Consider Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is simple, non-invasive, non-chemical and great for all skin types. The procedure is particularly helpful for sun-damaged skin, superficial lines, enlarged pores, blackheads, slight to moderate acne and acne scars. Microdermabrasion is not recommended for pregnant women, people with facial warts, skin cancer, sunburns or active rosacea or eczema. Those with deep scars may benefit more from a chemical peel.
