Microdermabrasion is commonly used to treat and/or diminish:
- Blackheads and Whiteheads
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Sun Damaged Skin
- Acne Prone Skin
- Superficial Age Spots
- Oily Skin
- Dry or Patchy Skin
With over a decade of success in Europe, the microdermabrasion procedure has been used to treat millions of satisfied people. The benefits of microdermabrasion over chemical and laser peels include:
- Less pain or discomfort
- Minimal Risk
- Suited for all skin types
- No anesthesia required
- No recovery time
- No hazardous chemicals
The average microdermabrasion procedure takes less than thirty minutes, depending on the skin condition, the area to be treated, and the desired outcome. Many will notice improvements in the texture and appearance of their skin immediately after the first treatment. The long-term benefits of multiple procedures can be remarkable.
Microdermabrasion uses a highly controlled flow of fine, medical grade crystals to remove the dead, outermost layer of skin. This skin exfoliation process reveals the new, living skin cells that are soft, smooth and receptive to nutrients.
The procedure is performed by using a hand piece that the operator passes over the skin two or three times. This evenly removes the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of skin.
The underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the abrasion and the vacuum. This promotes the generation of new collagen, which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of aging.
