Microdermabrasion skin exfoliation is an efficient, fast way of removing old or damaged skin cells and enhancing the vitality and clarity of the skin. Regular treatments will help maintain a youthful appearance, especially when part of a well-organized regimen of skin care.
Microdermabrasion offers a viable and cost-effective alternative to more invasive techniques. The technique relies on the delivery of minute aluminum oxide crystals to the surface of the skin. These particles gently remove the topmost layers of the skin as the clinician moves the handpiece across the surface of the treated area.
What to Expect
Healing time is rapid with minimal discomfort and redness. Most people return to work immediately with nothing more than a vibrant, healthier looking complexion. It is recommended to avoid sun exposure for a few days after a microdermabrasion treatment.
Monthly microdermabrasion treatments are often recommended as a way to minimize the effects of weather, stress and aging of the skin as well as maintain an improved complexion after light treatments.
