Particle skin resurfacing or microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure using a highly controlled spray of crystals to remove dead skin cells and release the younger tighter skin underneath, giving a more radiant look. In addition, microdermabrasion stimulates the young skin cells and collagen production for a longer-lasting effect. It has been used successfully in Europe for over 2 decades. It is safe and effective on all skin types.
Microdermabrasion helps to treat the following:
- uneven coloration, (superficial) age/sun spots, hyperpigmentation
- fine lines/wrinkles
- enlarged pores
- (the appearance of) stretch marks
- (superficial) scarring
WHAT TO EXPECT – The average procedure is about 30 minutes, thus the ‘lunch hour peel’. There is little discomfort and most people notice improvements immediately after the first treatment. Results continue to improve during the common series of 5 treatments.
ADVANTAGES – the advantages of microdermabrasion over the traditional dermabrasion, dermaplaning, acid and/or laser peels include:
- little pain or discomfort
- no recuperative period or down-time
- minimal risk
- no anesthesia
- treats all skin types
- make-up can be applied right after procedure
