Facial Microdermabrasion is another tool used to fight the effects of aging and sun-damage by revitalizing and resurfacing the outer layer of skin through exfoliation. Fine salt crystals are sprayed onto the skin and then vacuumed away to leave behind a tighter and softer complexion.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Like an ultra-gentle form of sandblasting, fine salt crystals are sprayed onto the skin and then vacuumed away to leave behind a tighter and softer complexion. It is a nonsurgical, clinical procedure that peels away dead skin cells leaving behind softer, smoother skin characterized by improved skin tone, a more even color and minimized pores. It also results in noticeable improvements in the appearance of acne scars, blemishes, age spots and fine lines. Skin feels softer and more elastic since microdermabrasion helps stimulate the natural growth of collagen.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
Microdermabrasion is usually performed over a number of sessions, generally two weeks apart. The number of microdermabrasion sessions will be determined by the degree of damage to your skin and the area to be treated. There is minimal discomfort and you can return to work or your normal activities immediately following the procedure. There are usually no side effects using microdermabrasion, except for a slight pinkish glow to the skin that may last for several hours. Lasting effects are dependent on proper skin care. Additional treatments will renew your glowing appearance. A series of six treatments over a few months is recommended for best results, followed by regular maintenance treatments.

- Improved skin tone with more even color

- Noticeable improvements in the appearance of acne scars, blemishes, age spots and fine lines
