What is microdermabrasion?

Exfoliation and stimulation

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment designed to improve the overall texture, tone and clarity of the skin. It helps with problems such as dull skin, hyperpigmentation, age spots, fine lines, acne scars, enlarged pores, and other skin imperfections. It is less aggressive than dermabrasion, and usually does not require a numbing agent.

How it works

Crystals and vacuum

Microdermabrasion uses fine aluminum oxide crystals to exfoliate the outer layer of dead and damaged skin cells. A gentle vacuum suction is used to remove the crystals and stimulate the lower layer of the skin. This stimulation provides increased blood flow, which encourages skin regeneration. The anti-aging effect is achieved by improvements in the skin’s elasticity, texture, tone, and pigmentation. The result is a new and youthful layer of skin. Moisturizers are applied afterwards to hasten the healing process. You will be able to notice an immediate difference in your skin after the treatment. The skin will feel tight, smooth, and bright.
