Microdermabrasion is used to exfoliate (remove dead skin cells) the skin with a specially designed hand piece. A diamond tip is gently moved over the skin and exfoliated skin cells are vacuumed away in a safe, controlled, comfortable manner, resulting in the removal of the top layer of the skin. The fresh skin just below the surface is then exposed, creating a glowing new complexion. Regular microdermabrasion treatments allow a healthy, balanced skin surface by promoting the formation of new cells in the epidermis and dermis.
Overall, the result is an improved skin appearance with even color tone. The skin’s blood flow is stimulated to increase fibroblast activity, which in turn, causes an increase in collagen and elastin formation. This exfoliation process is an important foundation in increasing the effect of photorejuvenation, skin care product absorption and giving a natural healthy glow to the skin.
Microdermabrasion is recommended in a series of 5 to 10 treatments spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart for optimal results. Treatment time is usually 30 minutes. It is followed with a calming and soothing gel masque to minimize redness and sensitivity.
