Microdermabrasion is the manual exfoliation of the upper layer of your epidermis, the dead layer of your skin. This is accomplished with the use of a crushed diamond tip wand and vacuum pressure. This exfoliation delivers changes both above and below the skin surface and promotes long term skin health. Treatments encourage new collagen formation. This results in a renewed plumpness of the skin and more youthful appearing complexion. Microdermabrasion is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne, pigmentation changes and sun damaged skin. Whatever the condition of the skin, by improving the health of the skin, many skin conditions begin to heal themselves.
How many treatments are needed?
Microdermabrasion is performed in a series of treatments to bring the skin to new level of health without compromising the skin’s integrity. A beginning series of 6 treatments are recommended, occurring at approximately 2 week intervals. Each session takes about an hour. Follow up treatments are recommended to maintain results and these follow up treatments are often scheduled every 1-2 months.
Do I need skin care products?
A unique benefit of Microdermabrasion is the openness it brings to the skin’s surface. This allows the skin care products to be more rapidly absorbed in the skin. We will customize these products to your individual needs.
