What Is Microdermabrasion ?
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses a spray of microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. Microdermabrasion also encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance.
Good to know:
- It is a pain free treatment.
- Your skin will feel soft and fresh immediately.
- You will see a fantastic result right after your treatment and then again 3 to 5 days later.
- Even though your skin will not be red or iritated, you should still stay out of the sun for at least 8 days and wear a sun screen.
How does it work?
This gentle technique is performed with a jet of fine medical-grade aluminum oxide crystals that are projected across your skin. When the crystals make contact with the skin, they remove the outer dead layer. The vacuum pressure simultaneously removes the crystals and dead skin cells delivering them into a waste collection unit. This stimulates blood flow to the surface of the skin increasing the oxygenation, causing the enhancement of cell renewal and collagen regrowth. The massaging action of the treatment creates a flushing and cleansing effect below the skin surface resulting in a vibrant, healthy appearance and complexion. As an adult your skin cells replace themselves approximately every 28 days. While undergoing microdermabrasion those skin cells get replaced much quicker resulting in new skin cells coming up to the surface much faster
