Microdermabrasion

Is Microdermabrasion safe?

Yes. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive. The procedure only removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells to reveal the fresher, younger cells beneath. Regardless of your skin’s condition, fine lines and age spots may be erased and acne scars and stretch marks will become less obvious.

What is treatment like?

Microdermabrasion treatments are not aggressive; they are slow and progressive, and best of all, they work! Most clients find Microdermabrasion treatments to be quite relaxing. The treatment is like a “superficial skin polishing” using micro-crystals vacuumed through a delicate hand piece. In as little as thirty-five minutes, this gentle, abrasive technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Following the treatment, we may treat your skin with specially formulated creams to further soften and moisturize your skin.

How soon will I see results?

Immediately! After your first treatment your skin will have a fresh pink glow. It will look healthier and feel smoother and softer. Your improvement will continue throughout your treatment program.

Why choose Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion takes less time than other more invasive procedures. There is no recovery period, no discomfort and you can resume normal activities immediately.

Who are the best candidates for Microdermabrasion?

The best candidates for Microdermabrasion are those clients that:
• Cannot afford to take time off for healing from a chemical peel.
• Don’t want to put off their outdoor activities like golf, tennis or skiing
• Have skin sensitivities to chemicals or make-up
• Have acne-prone skin that has not responded well to other acne remedies
• Are younger and whose skin is showing early signs of aging.

What results can I expect?

After your first treatment your skin will have a fresh pink glow and a smoother texture. Depending on the areas treated, you will notice an improvement in your skin’s texture and appearance. Skin imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars and age spots will be reduced and less obvious. Your skin will feel smoother and softer, and look younger. Improvements will continue throughout your treatment program.

How many treatments are required?

A series of Treatments may be needed… Treatments usually take 20 to 30 minutes depending on treatment goals. Many clients continue on with follow-up sessions to maintain their desired look.
