What is microdermabrasion?
It's the ultimate advancement in non-surgical, non-invasice skin conditioning. Microdermabrasion is a clinically proven technique for treating fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, stretch marks and pigmentation changes.
How does it work?
Microdermabrasion stimulates the blood flow to the surface of the skin producing increased cell renewal and collagen growth. The massaging action of the treatment creates a flushing and cleansing effect below the skin's surface; resulting in a vibrant, healthy appearance and complexion.
These treatments can result in up to a 30% increase in the elasticity of your skin; restoring confidence to the most visible part of your body.
Am I an ideal candidate?
Regardless of skin type, color, or texture...
Microdermabrasion is helping men and women experience remarkable improvements in their complexion.
What can I expect during the procedure? Is it painful?
Microdermabrasion is a selective and controlled mechanical peel. The peel itself can be performed in a variety of methods, most falling in two categories, with or without crystals.
With crystals--the procedure will be performed with a light suction of micro crystals that look like fine ground sugar. Using a delicate handpiece, the crystals are passed across the skin at a high rate of speed resulting in a mild abrasion.
Without crystals--this method uses a slighty abrasive tip (usually a laser cut diamond tip) which is passed across the skin quickly. This motion, in combination with the light suction, results in a mild abrarsion.
What can i expect after the treatment?
After the treatment, your skin will have a fresh pink glow with a soft texture; similar to that of a mild sunburn and tightening of the skin. You can apply makeup or moisturizer on the treated area and return to your day of activity as normal.
