Your skin goes through a lot on a daily basis. After continuously fighting against the sun’s harmful rays, harsh winds, toxins and pollution, eventually your complexion will show signs of the battle. Your body’s natural defenses will begin to break down and your skin will appear dry, rough, damaged and dull. Microdermabrasion is a treatment that removes the outer layer that has been exposed – after several sessions, that layer is gone and all of the imperfections that exist on it improve.
What to expect: We offer 2 types of microdermabrasion. The Diamondtome system is a crystal free system, that allows for gentle abrasion to the surface layers of the skin. Treatment with our diamond tipped face wands are considered “lunch hour” procedures. They take about 25 to 45 minutes, and you will be able to return to work and your normal daily activities right away. We also offer the standard crystal based microdermabrasion system, that can allow for a deeper dermabrasion process. The crystal microdermabrasion machines use a hand-held device on the skin to propel a flow of aluminum oxide crystals onto the face. The machine at the same time sucks up excess dirt, dead skin cells and the particles themselves. This treatment requires a bit more down time as the skin will be red from deeper penetration, so it’s recommended to do this before a weekend at home and out of the sun. A consultation with one of our estheticians will help determine which microdermabrasion treatment is best for you.
