Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that gently removes cells in the upper-most layer of skin. It is a safe, gentle treatment that evens out the texture of skin and reduces fine lines and age spots.
How Microdermabrasion Works
As you age, cell renewal begins to decrease making your skin appear dull and lifeless. Flaky skin, dark spots and fine lines begin to appear. Microdermabrasion uses micro-crystals to remove superficial dead cells and polishes your skin leaving it looking healthier, firmer and younger-looking. The gentle abrasive action of the crystals is efficient and provides reliable results for even the most delicate skin. Microdermabrasion is generally painless and can be used on any skin color and condition. Used in a series, it will minimize acne scars and stretch marks. We recommend this treatment because it carries a low risk of side effects and allows you to return to your normal activities immediately.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion improves the overall appearance of your skin and will:

Diamond microdermabrasion actually uses diamond tips on the hand-held wand. Dead skin cells are exfoliated and vacuumed off the face with a machine that uses tips covered in tiny diamonds. The diamond tips—together with the strong suction—make it possible to exfoliate the skin more thoroughly than other crystals. With the flexibility of various suction levels, it also increases blood flow to the skin which, in turn, helps produce collagen.
This procedure lessens the likelihood of particles getting into and causing damage to the eyes or mouth and is regarded as an especially safe form of treatment. It is also known to be effective on acne scars or stretch marks.
