What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure used as a facial rejuvenation tool. Our technician uses a machine to rapidly exfoliate the skin’s surface removing the outermost layer of skin cells. The treatment is not painful, and there is no recovery time. Your skin may be a bit pink afterward but this quickly fades. You’re left with a smoother, softer face and glowing complexion.

Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells. It consists of manual exfoliation using either crystals or diamond tip (depending on your skin type), for a deeper more controlled peel. This treatment is great for aging skin, and a fabulous acne treatment that helps with scarring as well.

This gentle, non-invasive procedure can help diminish:

  • Dull complexion.
  • Uneven skin tone or texture.
  • Age spots.
  • Dark spots that can appear when acne starts to clear.
  • Melasma.

We also use this procedure to improve the results gained from using anti-aging products, as it allows these products to penetrate the skin more easily.

After microdermabrasion, your skin will be pink and feel dry and tight (like sunburn or windburn) for about 24 hours. Use moisturizer. Some types of makeup should not be applied for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
