What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion removes the outermost layer of skin by exfoliation and exposing living skin cells that are receptive to nutrients. This promotes generation of new collagen which thickens the dermis(skin) and improves resistance to the effects of aging.

How is Microdermabrasion performed?
Microdermabrasion may require a series of treatments. When repeated regularly from 3-16 weeks, the cumulative results can be significant. Microdermabrasion is easy to undergo. It does not require anesthesia either local or general. I have heard some people say that it feels like sandpaper on their skin. If your skin is sensitive you expect your treated skin to look slightly pink.

What it is used for? 

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone or texture post laser
  • Reducing skin "dullness" that accompanies aging skin
  • Some stretch marks
  • Softening some saucer like acne scars and some other forms of scarring
  • Smoothing out fine wrinkle lines. Procedure will not make a huge difference on advanced deep wrinkles
  • Reducing the appearance of enlarged pores

What it should not be used for:

  • Not appropriate for keloidal scaring, as it may stimulate further scar formation.
  • Not appropriate for jagged ice-pick scars.
  • Skin cancers
  • This is not a method for the removal of skin growths.
  • Rosacea or couperose skin 

Microdermabrasion Facial or Back Treatments 
Packages may be used as a maintenance program after initial treatment - To be used 2 weeks for the first few treatments to correct a problem, othen spaced 4-6 weeks apart for healthy skin maintenance.  

Microdermabrasion for the Decolletage and Hands 
Do you look older than your age?  Do you look your age but want to look younger?  One of the reasons that women tend to look older is because the skin on our decolletage (chest area) & on the backs of our hands thins as we age.  It's also a target for sun damage, which results in wrinkles and brown spots (hyper-pigmentation) also known as age spots. 

We offer treatments which include a combination of microdermabrasion & various types of chemical peesl which helps eliminate fine lines and age spots.
