How Does it Work?
Patients relax lying down. A diamond-tipped wand is applied smoothly over the skin surface. The treatment results in new collagen production and skin rejuvenation.
Who is a Candidate?
Microdermabrasion can be used in all skin colors and types and is useful in treating pigment disturbances related to hormones and sun exposure. Microdermabrasion is an ideal solution for people who cannot afford to take time off for healing from laser resurfacing or strong chemical peels.
What can I Expect?
Glowing and smoother skin tones which convey a more rested, youthful appearance without the down time of other therapies.
Safety & Side Effects
Side effects are rare and generally temporary. The specific risks and the suitability of these procedures for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally.
There is no down time and individuals return to regular activities the same day.
