Microdermabrasion

Rejuvenate and Revitalize your skin in just one treatment!

Microdermabrasion uses a fine jet of crystals to gently and painlessly exfoliate your skin while vacuum suction removes the crystals with the dead skin cells. You're left with new, softer skin and more even skin texture.

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that removes the top layer of the skin and dead skin cells. It promotes the production of new cells in the deepest layer of the dermis. It cleans pores and aids in balancing oil production. It stimulates collagen to further even out skin texture and tone. It is a highly effective, clinically proven technique for treating fine lines, wrinkles, scars, acne, and stretch marks.

We thoroughly cleanse the area to be treated to remove excess oils from the skin. Then we pass a wand over the skin to gently abrade the surface while a vacuum thoroughly cleanses the skin of impurities. The procedure lasts about 15 minutes. After the procedure, we apply a soothing toner to the face, followed with a hydrating cream and sun block.

Microdermabrasion works in two ways. It works by gently exfoliating or removing the outside layers of the skin allowing smoother, fresher skin to be seen. The vacuum action helps to stimulate microcirculation and lymphatic flow, increasing the blood supply that provides nutrients needed for skin regeneration. This helps accelerate the skins repair process and stimulates the formation of new collagen and elastin thereby improving skin texture and elasticity.

This simple, quick and convenient procedure has become very popular with patients showing the early signs of aging, sun exposure and other facial imperfections. Non-invasive and non-wounding to the skin's surface, the procedure entails virtually no discomfort, down time or recovery. Patients typically experience some redness for about an hour after the procedure. Because microdermabrasion is so precise, the procedure is virtually pain-free.

Frequently, we will combine microdermabrasion with Laser Genesis for a Microderm Laser Facial ... a wonderful combination procedure we offer to improve skin tone and eliminate surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage. It is ideal for any part of your face, neck or decollete.
