What is Microdermabrasion and How Does it Work?

Microdermabrasion is a mild exfoliation procedure that gently sloughs away the outer-most layer of skin. It can be used on all skin types, and requires no surgery or anesthetics. Microdermabrasion is useful for eliminating or reducing skin irregularities and improving overall skin appearance. Here is how the treatment is done:

  • Using medical-grade crystals applied to the top layer of skin, a vacuum loop system is then used to remove the crystals as well as all of the dead skin cells, oil, and other potential skin surface pollutants.
  • After the procedure is performed, your skin may temporarily be pink, with a nice, healthy glow. There is virtually zero downtime after the treatment and you can even return to your regular activities that same day.  A noticeable improvement in the feel of the skin will also be evident, allowing makeup to go on smoother and skincare products to penetrate deeper.
  • For maximum effectiveness, treatments are usually done every two weeks in a series of six treatments, not including maintenance treatments.

Enhance your Microdermabrasion treatment

  • A great add-on to any microdermabrasion treatment is a soothing Collagen Mask to hydrate the skin with an  infusion of plant collagen, hyaluronic acid and peptides.
