Microdermabrasion

Refresh your skin’s appearance with our microdermabrasion treatments. These painless treatments are performed using a unique instrument that simultaneously blows fine crystals along the target area while immediately suctioning them up, along with dead skin cells, for disposal. There is no downtime and treatments can be performed on nearly any part of the body for more youthful and vibrant skin. This gentle treatment exfoliates the epidermis and uncovers the layer underneath, thus accelerating collagen production and resulting in healthier, rejuvenated skin.

The idea is that if you remove or break up the stratum corneum, the body interprets that as a mild injury and rushes to replace the lost skin cells with new and healthy ones. In the first hour after treatment, this causes mild edema (swelling) and erythema (redness). Depending on the individual, these side effects can last anywhere from an hour to two days. Without the stratum corneum acting as a barrier, medicinal creams and lotions are more effective because more of their active ingredients and moisture can find their way down to the lower layers of skin.
