Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the effects of aging. An exfoliating diamond tip is used on the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin to reveal younger, healthier-looking skin.
Microdermabrasion is an effective way to non-surgically and non-chemically reduce the appearance of fine lines, "crow's feet," age spots and acne scars on the face. Microdermabrasion treatments are safe, quick and are typically without side effects. Treatments are good for almost all skin types, and are excellent for those with sensitivities to chemical procedures. Microdermabrasion treatments are the perfect "lunchtime" procedure - immediately following your treatment, you may return to your normal daily activities.
For optimal results, a series of multiple treatments are recommended. Additional treatments encourage the production of a new layer of skin cells containing higher levels of collagen and elastin, both of which further improve your skin's appearance.
