Bright and Healthy Skin
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive, superficial technique that involves using tiny crystals to exfoliate, or buff away, the top layer of dead skin. This layer of skin is what is responsible for the fine lines and wrinkles, minor blemishes, brown spots and age spots, and imperfections that come from sun damage that we hate to see when we look in the mirror.
Microdermabrasion is ideal for all skin types and colors. It makes subtle changes to the surface of the skin and is perfect for those who can’t take any downtime for healing. After the process, your skin may be pink for about 24 hours and it may feel dry and tight, but then it returns to normal, especially after using moisturizers.
During the microdermabrasion process, your Provider will use a special instrument to spray on the tiny crystals that exfoliate your skin. The exfoliation process is immediately followed by a vacuum action that removes the exfoliated skin cells and the microcrystals from the skin and pores, reducing blackheads and whiteheads and improving the evenness of skin tone. Your skin believes the microdermabrasion process to be an injury, so your body’s natural healing processes stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, which leave the skin feeling smoother.
The microdermabrasion procedure can also be used in conjunction with other skin treatments:
Microdermabrasion is also an ideal skin treatment for the summer months when outdoor activities and spending time out in the sun prevents you from having a laser treatment.
A microdermabrasion procedure leaves your skin brighter and with a healthy glow. If you use it in combination with a laser skin treatment or peel, you may also see a better balance of color in your skin tone.
