Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin suffering from the effects of sun and aging. The device used is like a fine sandblaster that sprays tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin. As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation. Our physicians use a powerful, yet safe method to help return radiance to your facial skin.

How does it work?

microderm-3The procedure is performed by using a hand piece that the operator passes over the skin two or three times. This evenly removed the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the skin. The underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the abrasion and the vacuum. This promotes the generation of new collagen, which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of aging.

How many treatments will I need?

Your skin care professional will advise you regarding your unique skin care needs, but the typical patient receives four to six treatments spaced seven to ten days apart. The average procedure takes less than 30 minutes, depending upon the skin condition, the area to be treated, and the desired outcome. Microdermabrasion is fast, predictable and painless: the perfect lunch hour peel.
