Microdermabrasion is the most natural way to evenly and safely exfoliate the skin without chemicals or laser. Microdermabrasion utilizes crystals to finely resurface superficial layers of the skin. When a more aggressive treatment is necessary, vacuum pressure can be increased to evenly penetrate deeper layers of the skin.
Microdermabrasion is an intense exfoliation process that rejuvenates the skin by utilizing ultra-fine crystals to remove the upper layer of the stratum corneum. At the same time, the hand piece of the instrument contains a vacuum tube that sweeps up both the crystals and the skin’s cellular debris. This process exfoliates the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which will result in firmer, more youthful-looking skin over time.
Microdermabrasion is a gentle gradual exfoliation of the skin’s surface cells that reduces damage caused by age, sun, and other environmental and hereditary factors. It can minimize fine lines and wrinkles, acne, and scarring – and even lighten age spots – and can be performed on any part of the body. Microdermabrasion is done in a series of treatments, each lasting about 30 minutes so that you can return to work and resume all normal activities immediately.
Microdermabrasion can safely be performed on any area of skin that has been exposed to the sun and the environment. The most common areas include the face, neck, upper chest, and hands.
This is not a one-time treatment, but rather regular maintenance of the skin. The usual regimen is one treatment every seven to ten days for the first four sessions, and then once a month for maintenance. After a few treatments, the skin should begin to look and feel smoother and tighter.
Microdermabrasion rejuvenates and revitalizes your skin in just an afternoon!
In addition to surface exfoliation, microdermabrasion promotes the production of new cells in the basal (deepest) layer of the dermis; it cleans the pores, and stimulates collagen networking that can further improve skin texture.
Microdermabrasion can be successfully used on light or dark skin to treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees and hands. Microdermabrasion is generally intended for:
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Age Spots, Sun Damage and Hyper-Pigmentation
- Acne Scars, Chickenpox Scars and Scratch Marks
- Congested Skin, Enlarged Pores and Blemishes
- Dull Skin
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.
