Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion or skin peelIt is the most natural way to evenly exfoliate the skin without using harsh chemicals or lasers. Microdermabrasion utilizes corundum powder (Crystals) to finely resurface superficial layers of the skin along with vacuum pressure to remove dead skin cells in the upper layers of the epidermis, which promotes the growth of the new skin. This unique method is the latest, most advanced non-surgical treatment for skin rejuvenation.

Who should consider Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is right for anyone interested in improving skin appearance and reversing the aging process. A series of treatments will improve scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation problems, uneven tones and sun damaged skin.

Are there any special precautions that I should take before treatments?

Not particularly. However, there are some cautions that you should observe. Wait four to six months after you have quit taking Accutane before having a Microdermabrasion treatment. If you have a history of cold sores, talk to your physician about preventative medications prior to following a treatment. Also if you are planning a vacation in the sun, microdermabrasion should be postponed until you return. Schedule an appointment for a consultation with our Esthiology department. At that time we will arrange a successful program to suit your skin.
