WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?

Like other forms of non-injectable skin treatments, microdermabrasion is a form of skin resurfacing that works to clear away dead skin cells and imperfections at the surface. The treatment is performed with a pressurized tool that traces the surface of your skin and exfoliates by using small crystals to help clear away a layer that includes blemishes, lines, and wrinkles on the surface. 

This treatment is a fantastic way to brighten and enhance skin complexion, while also treating facial lines and wrinkles, including surface-level acne scars and blemishes. 

 
 
 

WHO IS A MICRODERMABRASION CANDIDATE?

Microdermabrasion facials, like other non-invasive forms of skin treatment, are very patient-friendly, allowing just about anyone to benefit from its restorative properties and benefits. Since microdermabrasion is a strong exfoliator that treats surface blemishes, most patients that choose microdermabrasion will do so because they do not have a need for treatment at a deeper level. These facials are best for people that are looking for light resurfacing, rather than something at a stronger level, such as a chemical peel. Because these facials are so easy on our patients, they are something that can be done much more often, as a form of upkeep, to ensure skin is healthy and glowing. 

 
 
 

WHAT DOES THE MICRODERMABRASION PROCEDURE ENTAIL?

The treatment is usually performed in conjunction with a basic, or more in-depth, facial. Overall, the entire process, including the facial, will last about an hour. 

First our esthetician will cleanse, hydrate, and purify your skin with an array of facial products, many of which you can decide by choosing a specific facial. At the end of the facial, your esthetician will use our microdermabrasion tool to resurface your skin. The microdermabrasion portion of the facial will last only a few minutes. 

 
 
 

WHAT IS THE MICRODERMABRASION RECOVERY PERIOD? 

There is not much of a recovery period for microdermabrasion. Depending on the strength of the micro treatment that you need or choose, you can expect to experience some very light redness and sensitivity for a couple of days while your skin heals. 

 
 
 

MICRODERMABRASION RESULTS:

Microdermabrasion results are best when the treatment is performed several times over a longer period. Having said that, even a single treatment will yield results that leave your skin looking brighter and healthier. You will have a more even skin tone and complexion, in addition to a smoother looking appearance.
