Have you ever wondered what Microdermabrasion does or if it is right for you? We answer those questions here!

What is Micodermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a gentle in-office procedure that softly removes the layer of dead skin cells that is found on most skin types, making skin smoother and softer. During Microdermabrasion, we spray tiny crystals onto the skin to polish targeted areas, making your skin feel clear and healthy! Luckily, there is no discomfort so numbing is not necessary!

What can Microdermabrasion treat?

Microdermabrasion can treat many skin concerns such as sun damage, acne, discoloration, wrinkles, fine lines, and congested pores. Microdermabrasion is great for most skin types and helps increase the collagen in your skin, helping to make your skin appear tight and smooth. You can see the results almost immediately after the procedure, and you can expect to have very little or no redness! Over the coming days, your skin’s look and feel will continue to renew, leaving you feeling amazing.

What do I need to do to prepare for a Microdermabrasion treatment?

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment so there’s little preparation needed besides removing make-up and cleansing the skin. For the best results, we recommend getting Microdermabrasion treatments at least twice a month to keep your skin at its healthiest. There is little to no recovery period so you can return to normal life quickly, unlike other treatments which require a few days of healing time at home. With procedure times as low as 10 to 30 minutes, you can continue to improve your skin health over the course of a year.

How fast can I get Microdermabrasion done?

Microdermabrasion is great for those who are busy, have skin sensitivities to chemicals or makeup, are prone to acne, or showing early signs of aging. Its exfoliation and skin rejuvenation benefits will leave your skin looking softer and brighter.
