What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a fast, non-invasive skin treatment perfect for refining, cleaning and smooth-ing the skin. Using micro massagethe procedure gets rid of the surface layer of dead skin and prompts healthy reactions in the deeper layers resulting in soft and hydrated skin that glows.

A hand-held device with an exfoliating diamond tip is brushed over the skin two or three times, fanning in air which creates a vacuum motion when the device touches the skin. While the exfoliat-ing tip passes over the skin’s surface, it gathers up the dead skin cells, and discards of dry skin while cleansing the skin’s texture.

The microdermabrasion machine can treat different skin types and thicknesses, allowing it to help with various concerns, like congestion, acne, wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, and flaky skin. Micro-dermabrasion can also prompt active skin products such as Vitamin C and collagen to work in half the time. Depending on the area being treated, it can take as little as twenty minutes to complete.
