Microdermabrasion treatments are a non-surgical way to freshen and rejuvenate the skin on your face and body.
A less aggressive approach than dermabrasion, microdermabrasion treatments make use of a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand the skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer.
Microdermabrasion is used to treat light scarring, discoloration and sun damage, and can be used to lessen the appearance of stretch marks, among other conditions.
The technique also helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger-looking complexion. Collagen is a protein in your skin that’s abundant when you’re a child and makes skin appear taut and smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin.
Each treatment will last for about an hour. You may feel a mild scratching as we mechanically remove the superficial dead skin cells, but most patients find the treatment relaxing and comfortable. There is also a vacuum mechanism to lift away the dead skin cells.
Afterward, we will apply a special moisturizer to enhance and prolong your results. There is no downtime or recovery period.
