Microdermabrasion is a treatment that gently exfoliates the top layer of skin by applying a flow of fine crystals that are then vacuumed off the skin. Exfoliating the top layer of skin leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells. It also stimulates blood flow, reduces pore size and improves overall tone and texture. The different types of crystal treatments we offer are aluminum oxide, sodium bicarbonate (organic), and diamond tip.
Microdermabrasion can be used to improve many common skin conditions such as sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, irregular pigmentation, mild acne scars, and large pores. It can also be effective in the treatment of oily skin and skin that is dry, dull and rough.back to top
Microdermabrasion accelerates the cellular turnover process revealing healthier, younger looking skin. It allows your body to gradually resurface your skin without the risks, side effects and downtime required with more aggressive approaches. Microdermabrasion is performed with a stream of crystals that are delivered to the surface of the skin and then removed with vacuum pressure. This process loosens old and damaged cells to reveal fresh, invigorated skin. The stimulated blood flow to the surface of the skin increases oxygenation, which speeds up cell renewal and collagen re-growth.back to top
Each treatment will last approximately 20 to 60 minutes.back to top
Within several minutes of the treatment your skin may become slightly red. This reaction will subside, and within a few hours, your normal coloring will return. Microdermabrasion does not burn or cut the skin. Clients may return to their normal activities immediately. Improvements in appearance and texture will occur with successive treatments.back to top
Most clients require four to six treatments spaced every two weeks to substantially reduce pore size, smooth skin and even-out facial skin tone. Many people choose to continue treatments on a regular basis when they see continuous improvement in their skin’s appearance.back to top
Most patients report no side effects. You may notice a slight redness or skin sensitivity, usually lasting no more than one day. You may also experience slight skin flaking three to four days after your treatment. This will disappear within a few days.back to top
