Microdermabrasion rejuvenates and revitalizes your skin in just an afternoon! Microdermabrasion uses a fine jet of crystals to gently exfoliate your skin while vacuum suction removes the crystals along with the dead skin cells. You are left with new, softer skin and a more even skin texture.
In addition to surface exfoliation, microdermabrasion promotes the production of new cells in the deepest layer of the skin, cleans the pores, and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which will result in firmer more youthful skin over time. This gradual exfoliation of the skin’s surface cells reduces damage caused by age, sun and other environmental and hereditary factors. Most microdermabrasion machines use aluminum oxide which is not safe to use around the eyes or lips, whereas, organic microdermabrasion uses sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) which is safe to use around the eyes and lips. Microdermabrasion can be successfully used on light or dark skin to treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees and hands. Microdermabrasion is generally intended for:
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Age Spots, Sun Damage and Hyper-Pigmentation
- Acne Scars, Chickenpox Scars and Scratch Marks
- Congested Skin, Enlarged Pores and Blemishes
- Dull Skin
