Microdermabrasion is a common procedure and incredibly safe. It is a non-invasive treatment designed to improve overall texture, tone and clarity of the skin. Microdermabrasion will help reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, chicken pox scars, brown/age spots, enlarged pores and other skin imperfections.
It is a simple and effective form of exfoliation that uses crystals to remove the outer layer of dead or damaged skin cells, revealing a new, youthful layer of skin. Treatment begins with cleansing the patient’s skin thoroughly, removing all dirt and excess oils. Followed by a sterile diamond head that gently abrades the top layer of the skin, at the same time the dead skin cells along with any dirt are vacuumed away in a controlled manner. Finishing off with only the best medical grade products that will now penetrate deeper into the skin, replenishing natural nutrients, restoring cell activity and promoting skin health.
We recommend between 5 and 8 treatments separated between 7 and 10 days at times that are convenient for you. However, scars and discolorations may need more attention and therefore more treatments.
