Microdermabrasion is a handheld device used by a trained professional, which simultaneously emits crystals (which abrade the skin’s outer layer) and creates a vacuum (to pull and slough dead skin away). This allows us to deliver an inexpensive and non invasive treatment that yields excellent results.
Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective choice for the treatment of ”
“fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and dull, lack luster skin. The actual procedure has no downtime, which makes it a great option for a quick lunch time treatment. Some patients may notice a slight redness immediately following their treatment, but this should subside almost instantaneously.
To optimize results, it is strongly recommended that a series of treatments be completed, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart.
