About Microdermabrasion

How It Works

Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates the topmost layer of the skin, removing dead or damaged cells and leaving new skin supple and radiant. The vacuum action helps to stimulate microcirculation, which increases the blood supply that provides nutrients needed for skin regeneration. It also stimulates formation of new collagen and elastin to improve skin texture and elasticity. Microdermabrasion results are striking without being invasive, a treatment most people find relaxing and refreshing.

There are almost no side effects. This is a non-surgical treatment that is safe and effective with no down-time, it is effective for all skin colors and types, no anesthetic is needed, and it is great for those of us who are sensitive to chemicals because none are required. People often describe the procedure as relaxing, similar to a sun bed session.

Microdermabrasion is a great way of refreshing skin all over the body. Its rejuvenating effects can be used on the arms, legs, the back, and any skin surface needing polishing. This is a total body skin rejuvenation system.

Microdermabrasion is usually the initial stepping stone to the more advanced treatments available for treating complex conditions. These conditions include deep scarring, stretch marks, and keloids (excessive scar tissue usually found at a surgical site).

Results

Microdermabrasion is a clinically proven, inexpensive technique that revitalizes dull skin and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, pigmentation, sun damaged skin, blemishes, acne scars, patchy skin, and clogged pores.

How many treatments will I need?

Your doctor will develop a treatment schedule that is right for you. Some maintenance is required to sustain the health of your newly polished skin. A prescribed skin care routine will also accelerate and enhance the benefits you receive from the treatment.
