Microdermabrasion is non-invasive. The procedure only removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells to reveal the fresher, younger cells beneath. Regardless of your skin’s condition, fine lines and age spots may be erased, and acne scars and stretch marks will become less obvious.
Microdermabrasion is appropriate for many adults, such as those who:
Can’t afford to take time off for healing from a chemical peel or laser procedure.
Don’t want to put off their outdoor activities like golf, tennis, or skiing.
Have skin sensitivities to chemicals or make-up.
Have acne-prone skin that has not responded well to other acne remedies.
Are younger and whose skin is showing early signs of aging.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Microdermabrasion treatments are not aggressive; they are slow and progressive, and best of all, they work! Most patients find microdermabrasion treatments to be quite relaxing.
The treatment is like a “superficial skin polishing” using micro-crystals vacuumed through a delicate hand piece. In as little as 35 minutes, this gentle, abrasive technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Following the treatment, we may apply specially-formulated creams to your skin to further soften and moisturize it. Treatments are performed through a course of bi-weekly sessions, ranging from 2 to 12 weeks.
The benefits of your microdermabrasion treatment will be noticeable immediately after your first session, as your skin will look healthier and feel smoother and softer. Your improvements will continue to progress throughout the course of your treatment program.
Maintaining healthy looking skin is a daily task. Always wear SPF of at least 15 to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Keep your skin moist and fresh with daily cleansing and moisturizing using specially formulated skin care products.
