Microdermabrasion

On top of all the wonderful benefits of traditional microdermabrasion, we have some of the newest technology that combines sonic wave technology with traditional microdermabrasion. It penetrates the subcutaneous layer, promoting product absorption, deep pore cleansing, blood flow and collagen production and ultimately leads to a more enhanced microdermabrasion result. This non-invasive treatment has no downtime and includes an in-depth skin analysis, a deep facial cleanse and a hydrating mask. Post treatment you may experience some redness, dryness, minor flaking or light peeling, expect full results within seven to ten days. Afterwards you will notice a visibly brighter complexion, plump skin and deep hydration.

Preparing for your Microdermabrasion Treatment

  • If you get cold sores regularly, taking acyclovir or valacyclovir starting two days prior
    to your treatment will reduce the likelihood of a breakout due to your treatment.
  • For your first treatment you can expect mild redness, and a tight, warm sensation for
    between 4 and 24 hours.
  • If possible, please arrive at the office without makeup on, and with a clean, (and for
    men a clean shaven) face.
  • If you’ve had Botox, Fillers or Threads injected you must wait at least two weeks
    before treatment. We want you to be satisfied with the results before we can offer you
    any other treatments.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment meant to help improve a person’s skin tone and texture. This is achieved by gently exfoliating the epidermis to rejuvenate the skin and give you a brighter complexion.

Once your skin has fully exfoliated, the dead skin cells are suctioned off, which helps prevent clogged pores and helps with blood flow. Improved blood flow helps promote cell production, enhancing your skin’s elasticity. Removing the dead skin cells also helps stimulate collagen production, a vital protein that gives the skin its firmness.

Is Microdermabrasion Painful?

No, microdermabrasion is generally painless and does not require anesthesia of any kind. The procedure takes no more than 30 minutes to complete and has no recovery period. This makes it so you can easily return to your daily activities as soon as you are finished.
