What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-chemical, non-invasive method of skin resurfacing. Our unit uses a tubular hand piece through which air is circulated to produce a fine stream of fine aluminum oxide micro particles that along with suction ?sand? the surface of the skin. This gentle skin blasting causes the top dead skin layers to be removed along with the skin?s impurities. Microdermabrasion is an intense exfoliation process that rejuvenates the skin by utilizing ultra-fine aluminum oxide crystals to remove the upper layer of the Stratum corneum. From the hand piece, crystals are blasted onto the skin as a vacuum tube from within sweeps up both the crystals and the skin's cellular debris. The skin is exfoliated, resulting in firmer, more youthful looking skin.
Over time, this repeated process stimulates the production of a new layer of skin cells, bringing with it an increased level of collagen and elastin, improving the skin's appearance.
Microdermabrasion buffs the skin of fine lines and discoloration while refining the texture and hue. Repeated treatments yield excellent results for scar revision (whether from acne, chicken pox, or even surgery scars) as well as deep discoloration, malanosis, and tattoo reduction. Although there are immediate results the first time, after about the third or fourth treatment, there is a real visible change in the appearance of the skin.
