Microdermabrasion, a technology of European origin, is designed to rejuvenate and refresh your skin without the extended recovery periods common to laser and deep chemical peel resurfacing.
How does microdermabrasion work?
Microdermabrasion is a method of mechanically exfoliating the upper layers of non-viable skin cells. Abrasive particle are directed out through a handpiece and at the skin. As the handpiece is gently advanced the abrasive particles are guided out and suctioned back into the machine. This combination of abrasion and suction removes upper layers of dead skin and seems to stimulate lower layers of healthy skin to reproduce.
Is Microdermabrasion for me?
Each person is an individual with different needs and desires. However, microdermabrasion is reported to:
- Soften fine wrinkles
- Lessen superficial skin discoloration
- Smooth the skin’s surface
- Provide the skin with a healthy glow
When combined with a superficial chemical peel the depth of treatment can be extended providing for a more complete treatment.
What can I expect following the treatment?
One of the greatest benefits to microdermabrasion is that there is little to no downtime. Following treatment you will feel relaxed, your face should feel refreshed and you can expect a healthy glow to your skin.
