What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a professional exfoliation that can reduce fine lines, scarring, and discoloration. Professionals achieve exfoliation by using a wand to blast and gently exfoliate with a micro tip (type of tip varies, please call for more information). The procedure removes the top layer of dead skin cells from the dermis. All the shed skin is picked up through the vacuum in the wand. The process leaves the skin smoother.


If you want to improve your skin’s youthful appearance, Microdermabrasion will do the trick.


Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Microderm will polish your skin by exfoliating dead skin cells. Fine lines and minor wrinkles are less visible, and the dullness is no more.

Another benefit is even skin tone, which is the byproduct of the exfoliation. The benefits don’t stop there; you will also see reduced skin discoloration and minimized acne scars. Blood flow to the cells of the skin improves, and more oxygen gets into the cells. Improved skin turnover with healthier skin.


The treatment also boosts collagen production so you will have more supple skin. Elasticity rebounds and your skin will regenerate and be able to absorb product more efficiently.


The combination all of these benefits leads to a natural glow. The challenge is to find the time for treatment. Fortunately, there is no pain, no recovery and the treatment can take place over a lunch break.  


Who Should get Microderm?

The best candidate to treat will have low-grade skin concerns. Minor acne scarring and fine lines will see immediate improvements. Treatments are especially helpful for people of color that get post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and any skin tone that suffers from Milia cysts on the face.


Mild sun damage will see the benefits of Microdermabrasion after several treatments as skin tone improves with compounding effects of several treatments.


Microderm is a painless same day treatment that you can slip in between your appointments. That’s right, no recovery time. If you have plans for a fun day of shopping and dining at Downtown District, don’t cancel.

Microdermabrasion can have beautiful results in tandem with other treatments. Professional exfoliation can help improve outcomes of chemical peels. That is an excellent example of a procedure that will benefit from a combination of treatments.


What to expect?

You can expect a painless appointment, but you can also expect some redness immediately after a session. You will need to put a good sunscreen on to protect your fresh skin. You will need a series of treatments to get the best results.  

After we schedule and complete the series of sessions to restore skin, we follow up with regular maintenance sessions that are further apart and less frequent. The regular treatments will produce lasting results.
