Microdermabrasion

What is microdermabrasion

 Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage and stretch marks. 

Who needs microdermabrasaion

People with uneven pigmentation, fine lines and clogged pores can benefit from a series of microdermabrasion treatments. The procedure stimulates blood flow, which increases the nutrition delivered to skin cells. This improves cell production, which improves skin's elasticity and texture.

    First, the skin is thoroughly cleansed and steamed. Steam softens the upper layers of skin and opens the pores. Using a handheld device, a mild abrasion will be targeted to specific areas of the skin. Simultaneously, the device will vacuum up any excess dead skin stimulating circulation to the epidermal layers of the skin. This drives nutrients and oxygen to the epidermis, which is void of blood vessels.
