Microdermabrasion is one of our most popular skin treatments. This quick procedure quickly removes the superficial layers of dead skin and stimulates the growth of new skin and collagen. The treatment will leave you looking great and feeing refreshed. This non-invasive (crystal-free) skin polishing treatment gently exfoliates the “micro layers” of dead skin, revealing younger, healthier looking skin. The procedure also includes a customized mask and an oxygen plus ultrasonic treatment. This treatment results in virtually no downtime and patients can return to normal activities right away. As with many other “no down time” skin rejuvenation techniques, a series of treatments may be required to achieve the desired effect.
Although almost anyone will see some improvement after microdermabrasion, the best results are seen in those with mild to moderate skin changes that are the result of sun exposure and age. Those with severe sun damage and wrinkling generally don’t see a significant improvement in these problems although any product that is used works better because it is not sitting on a layer of “dead skin”.
How it works
While some systems utilize a pressurized stream of ultrafine sand or salt crystals to abrade the skin, we prefer crystal free microdermabrasion. A probe tipped with abrasive diamonds is passed over the skin, removing the top layers of dead skin, which are captured using suction. We improve our microdermabrasion treatments by applying a mask tailored to your skin type and administering oxygen and ultrasonic therapy to maximize the effect and leave you feeling refreshed and pampered. The treatment typically takes about an hour and you may return to regular activities right away.
While you will likely see some improvement after a single treatment, we may recommend a series of treatments scheduled a few weeks apart for maximum benefit.
In addition to being a great stand-alone treatment it also is an excellent addition to other procedures, both surgical and non-surgical, that will improve your overall appearance and result.
Micro Peel intensifies a microdermabrasion treatment by adding a chemical peel. This is a great way to boost your microdermabrasion and is also more cost efficient than having the treatments individually.
Over 8,000 microdermabrasion procedures were performed in the US last year.
