Many people wish to restore healthy, glowing skin with minimal to no downtime meaning no time away from your regular activities. Microdermabrasion is a progressive, non–invasive treatment that uses a diamond–tip hand piece to produce gentle epidermal abrasion on the surface of the skin without requiring any time away from your usual schedule. By sloughing away these old, dead skin cells, microdermabrasion is able to reveal healthier, younger skin.
During a microdermabrasion treatment, a diamond tip hand-piece is passed over the skin. The hand piece uses different removable heads, which vary in the amount of exfoliation. The microdermabrasion uses suction to draw the tissue closest to the hand piece, which stimulates micro–circulation and increased blood supply. It also stimulates formation of new collagen and elastin to improve skin texture and elasticity.

Aftercare and Recovery
You may or may not be slightly pink after treatment, which can easily be covered with a light powder. We do recommend repeat treatments in order to maintain optimal results as dead skin cells will continue to build up approximately 30-60 days post treatment and will therefore need to be removed again to maintain that stunning glow.
