Microdermabrasion facial treatments remove the dead and flaking skin to create an immediate improvement to the appearance and texture of your skin. In addition to surface exfoliation, microdermabrasion facial treatment promotes the production of new cell growth in the basal (deepest) layer of the dermis, it cleans the pores, and stimulates collagen production that can further improve skin texture promoting a more vibrant clear skin complexion. Microdermabrasion facial treatment can be successfully used on light or dark skin to treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees and hands.

How is the Microdermabrasion facial treatment procedure done?
Microdermabrasion skin treatments can be successfully used on the face, neck, and chest arms more rarely on the knees, elbows, arms and hands. After cleansing your treatment area, we use a jet of sterile micro-crystals to gently exfoliate your skin. We can adjust the pressure for your skin and move the microdermabrasion machine's hand piece across the treatment area to deliver a precise stream of crystals onto the skin's surface to reveal a fresh, invigorated, clear skin surface. After your skin treatment, we may choose to do one of several different type of chemical peels depending on your skin condition.
Does Microdermabrasion Facial Treatment Hurt?
Not really. Microdermabrasion may sting a little around the eye area. We will normally increase the treatment strength each session to increase the penetration to the skin. Your skin may feel a little hot and appear a little pink immediately following your treatment. You should tell your technician immediately if your treatment is too uncomfortable; we can turn down the controls if the suction or level of the "blast" is too strong for you.
How do I prepare for a microdermabrasion facial treatment procedure?
There really is no preparation for Micro dermabrasion. We do recommend that you avoid any substance (Retin A, Acid Peels, heavy exfoliation, etc.) and any situation that will leave your skin sensitive on the day of treatment.
How long does a microdermabrasion facial treatment take and how many will I need?
Microdermabrasion is a quick facial treatment procedure that usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes. We recommend you start with 4-8 sessions, one every two to three weeks. Following your initial treatment your skin maintenance program should include an additional treatment every 1-3 months. Most people should see dramatic improvements after just a few treatments, but stick with it for the best results! Severe skin problems, such as deep acne scars and brown spots will take several treatments before any improvement is noticeable.
Can I combine Microdermabrasion with another facial treatment?
Yes. The microdermabrasion facial treatment is the perfect compliment to other procedures including Botox injections, dermal fillers, Peels and photofaicals.
