A progressive, non-invasive treatment that propels natural mineral crystals onto the surface of the skin for gentle epidermal abrasion that reveals newer, healthier, younger skin. Also helps with sun-damage, enlarged pores, and fine lines and wrinkles.
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure designed to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. During a microdermabrasion treatment, a specialized device is used to exfoliate the top layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells, debris, and impurities. This process is achieved using abrasive crystals, and it is often described as a "sandblasting" or "polishing" of the skin. Microdermabrasion can improve the skin's texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and mild hyperpigmentation. It is a popular choice for individuals seeking a minimally invasive and non-surgical way to enhance the appearance and feel of their skin.

Is microdermabrasion painful, and what is the downtime?
Microdermabrasion is generally not painful and is often described as a mild scratching or sandpaper-like sensation. There is no downtime associated with the procedure, and most individuals can return to their regular activities immediately afterward. Some redness and mild sensitivity may occur, but these effects are temporary and typically subside within a few hours.
How many microdermabrasion sessions are needed for noticeable results?
The number of sessions required varies depending on the individual's skin concerns and goals. A series of microdermabrasion treatments is usually recommended, with sessions spaced about 2-4 weeks apart. Results are typically noticeable after the first treatment, but more significant improvements become apparent after a few sessions. Your skincare professional can provide guidance on the appropriate treatment plan for your specific needs.
Is microdermabrasion suitable for all skin types?
Microdermabrasion is generally safe for most skin types, including sensitive skin. It is a versatile treatment with minimal risk of side effects. However, the intensity and specific approach may be adjusted based on an individual's skin type and needs.
