Microdermabrasion

microdermabrasion

Diamond tip Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive treatment for facial rejuvenation that uses a micronized diamond tipped wand for exfoliation along with adjustable suction to sweep away the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. Much like brushing your teeth, microdermabrasion helps to gently remove "plaque" and skin debris.

The exfoliation and suctioning disrupts the skin’s surface causing cell division. As the skin cells divide, fibroblast activity is stimulated leading to collagen production, which leads to thicker, firmer skin. Human skin sloughs off at a slower rate with age, so the exfoliation of several layers of the stratum corneum (surface skin layers) leaves skin fresh and radiant. Microdermabrasion can be done to decrease the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, photo-damage, diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and shallow acne scars, which helps to even out the texture. Removing the dead skin will aid in the penetration of skin care products by up to 50% and makeup will go on much more smoothly.

 

Microdermabrasion can also be combined with chemical peels specifically targeted to correct individual skin concerns for advanced treatments and faster results.

 

Microdermabrasion treatments along with a good SPF 30-50 sunblock and high-quality skin products will help you maintain your improved skin.
