Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular methods of removing the top layers of dead skin cells, reducing scars, lightening dark spots and accelerating new collagen production. After your face is “polished” a hydrating and anti-inflammatory mask is applied. Followed by an antioxidant moisturizer and sunscreen, your face will glow.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion or “closed dermabrasion” is a non-painful, non-invasive technique to remove the outermost layer of skin, the stratum corneum. This is the protective layer between the environment and the lower layers of skin. It also houses fine lines and blemishes, and controls which topical products may enter the dermis.
The microdermabrasion device uses vacuum pressure to draw micro-crystals via hand piece across the skin’s surface, exfoliating dead skin cells. This treatment is effective for a variety of conditions:
- Rough skin
- Mild acne
- Mild discoloration
- Fine lines/wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage
Microdermabrasion is safe to use on any skin type. Your skin will look younger, fresher, and healthier.
