Microdermabrasion / Micro Peel

Microdermabrasion is a progressive, non-invasive treatment that removes the horny (top) layer of the skin; dead skin cells. It promotes the production of new cells in the (deepest) layer of the dermis. It cleans pores and aids in balancing oil production. It stimulates collagen net working to further even out skin texture and tone. It is a highly effective, clinically proven technique for treating fine lines, wrinkles, scars, acne, and stretch marks.

The area is thoroughly cleansed to remove excess oils from the skin. A wand is manually passed over the skin on the face. It gently abrades the surface while a vacuum thoroughly cleanses the skin of impurities. The procedure lasts 15 minutes. Afterwards a soothing toner is applied to the face, followed with a hydrating cream and sun block

Microdermabrasion works in two ways. It works by gently exfoliating or removing the outside layers (stratum conium) of the skin. The abrasive action of the wand gently removes the outer surface layers, allowing smoother, fresher skin to be apparent. The second way is that the vacuum action helps to stimulate microcirculation and lymphatic flow, increasing the blood supply that provides nutrients needed for skin regeneration. This helps accelerate the skins repair process and stimulates the formation of new collagen and elastin thereby improving skin texture and elasticity

Individual microdermabrasion treatments are recommended every two weeks. When performed with an alternating skin care treatment, the protocol would be microdermabrasion, followed two weeks later with an alternating treatment, followed two weeks later with microdermabrasion. Four sessions of each treatment are recommended depending on skin condition and concerns. Maintenance sessions should be sought to keep skin healthy and glowing.

Microderrmabrasion using a Diamondderrmabrasion wand is similar to particle microdermabrasion in its results but without the adverse effects of loose particles, irritation and skin reaction. Unlike other exfoliation treatments, natural diamond chips are encrusted onto the end of different grade wands and no loose abrasives will contaminate you or the environment.
