Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a safe, progressive approach to skin care that was developed in Italy in 1987. it can be used to treat:

Wrinkles, fine lines, acne, acne scars, age/sun spots, enlarged & clogged pores, flaky dry skin & uneven pigmentation.

Using vacuum and sometimes positive pressure, the machine and the specially-designed handpiece allow micro-fine crystals to pass over the skin. As the crystals make contact, they actually blast off a thin layer of the outer skin (dermis). The handpiece then vacuums off the dead skin and crystal particles. The procedure exfoliates the dry, dull skin, while stimulating circulation and collagen production.

Each treatment removes one to two layers of dead skin cells, depending on the condition that is being treated. The depth of treatment is determined by the trained operator and controlled through the speed of the handpiece, crystal flow and the number of passes. Since each treatment is customized, patients can be treated at their own comfort levels.
