Microdermabrasion is a painless, non-invasive procedure using Aluminum Oxide Crystals for a highly refined polishing of the skin. A steady stream of these fine crystals is delivered directly to the skin while simultaneously applying a vacuum suction onto the skin in order to resurface it and refine pores. The vacuum pressure and speed can be adjusted depending on the sensitivity and tolerance of the skin. A smooth, fresh, and rejuvenated surface is exposed after the old surface is removed. This action promotes new cells to grow at the epidermis and dermis level.
Microdermabrasion can diminish the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, fine lines, large pores, acne, and shallow acne scars. Minimal to no recovery time is required after microdermabrasion. Most patients immediately return to daily activity after a treatment. Makeup and non-irritating creams can be applied at least 3 hours after the treatment. Some patients may experience temporary, mild dryness and sun sensitivity.
Many of our patients use microdermabrasion as a maintenance treatment for their skin whether it is for acne control or as a refresher for aging skin. Also, it is perfect for brides to do within days before their wedding. The controlled skin exfoliation made available by microdermabrasion will allow make-up and self-tanning products to go on much more smoothly and last longer. We offer single treatments and money saving packages to areas such as the face, chest, and back. We recommend a treatment every 2-4 weeks.
