What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that propels natural mineral crystals onto the surface of the skin for gentle epidermal abrasion that reveals newer, healthier, younger-looking skin. The vacuum action helps to stimulate micro-circulation, increasing the blood supply that provides nutrients needed for skin regeneration. It also stimulates the formation of new collagen and elastin to improve skin texture and elasticity.
What does Microdermabrasion treat?
This procedure can treat a vast range of skin imperfections such as sun damage, uneven granular skin, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, blackheads, scars and stretch marks. It is also especially effective for acneic, skin toning, pigmentary stains (brown spots) and aging skin. It is normally done on the face and neck, but other areas of the body can be treated as well.
There are normally about 25 layers of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. This clogs the skin and blocks product from being able to penetrate and do it’s job.
Microdermabrasion takes off 10 to 15 layers of this dead skin, allowing for the skin to reactivate.
This will make all of the products used on your skin much more effective!
Who can get Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a safe procedure and can be done on anyone from teenagers and beyond. It is recommended that those with bad acne, thin skin or broken capillaries do not undergo this procedure. The technician would also be able to determine this during your consultation, and recommend a different treatment is this one is not for you.
Does Microdermabrasion hurt?
No. The vacuum component provides suction but there is no pain involved.
Do you have to have Microdermabrasion with facial?
It is highly recommended that each microdermabrasion treatment be followed by a facial. This is the ideal time to put hydration and goodness back into the skin, especially since the treatment can dry out the skin a little. The technician will apply a cream and serum after each session regardless, but you can also book the series with a facial of your choice (or of the technicians recommendation) after each treatment for maximum results.
Ideally, microdermabrasion (followed by a facial) is done in a series of 6 treatments with 2 weeks between each visit.
Single session, Micro only: from $75
Single session Micro + Mini Facial: from $150
Micro series (buy 6 get 1 free): from $450
