Microdermabrasion is a facial procedure that uses manual exfoliation to remove the outer layer of the skin. A diamond tipped wand is used to abrade the surface of the skin. In the treatment your skin will first be cleansed with a cleanser appropriate to your skin type. Then, with the microdermabrasion wand we will smoothly glide it over your skin. After, we will then tone the skin, apply a hydrating mask, serums and a moisturizer. The entire procedure is 60 minutes.

Frequently asked Questions
What will Microdermabrasion do for my skin?
Overall, microdermabrasion will reduce the appearance of wrinkles, remove acne scars, clear up blackheads, minimize the size of the pores, reduce sun damage, and even out the skin tone. Microdermabrasion also helps to boost collagen production to provide firming and toning to the complexion.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
When it comes to microdermabrasion, one treatment will not provide instant results. That is why it is important to have a series of microdermabrasion services, 3 to 6 are recommended for the best results. These initial 3 to 6 treatments can be spaced one week apart, and from that point, the client can continue to receive one treatment on a monthly basis for the best maintenance.
Is There Any Downtime After a Treatment?
Microdermabrasion is a safe and gentle procedure with no downtime. The client will need to protect his or her skin with moisturizer and sun block for 48 hours after the treatment and may experience mild redness and sloughing/peeling. However, the client can return to work immediately, which is why many clients prefer to have microdermabrasion treatments on their lunch breaks since there is no downtime.
How does a microdermabrasion treatment work on the skin?
The thickness of the epidermis is increased because new cells are being produced more rapidly and the cells themselves are larger and healthier. The cells of the lower layers of the epidermis are knitted tighter in a more consistent "basket weave" configuration, instead of a haphazard arrangement. The barrier function of the epidermis is disrupted for the first 24 to 48 hours causing the skin to be drier than usual. During the cell reproduction of cells the fibroblasts that make up the collagen fibers are increased and are thicker more tightly packed and more organized. The number of elastin fibers also increased and they are orientated vertically instead of horizontally giving the dermal layer more "spring".
What results can I expect?
Depending on the area treated, you will notice an improvement in your skin's appearance after your treatment. Stretch marks and acne scars will be less obvious. Age spots and fine lines are reduced, and many Microdermabrasion clients report that their skin seems softer, tighter, smoother and younger looking.
Is Microdermabrasion Good For Acne Scarring?
By removing the top layer of the skin, professional micro abrasion diminishes or even removes superficial acne scarring. Deeper acne scarring requires a more invasive procedure, like a deep chemical peel or IPL (Photo Rejuvination).
