Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic technique that uses
a mechanical medium for exfoliation to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. It is a non-invasive
procedure. Dermabrasion is generally used to refer to a surgical procedure that abrades away the top layers of the skin.
The term microdermabrasion generally refers to a non-surgical procedure that abrades less deeply than dermabrasion. Although
the mechanism of the two procedures is similar, the difference in the depth of the abrasion results in different recovery
times. Dermabrasion recovery time may take as much as several weeks to several months whereas microdermabrasion recovery
time may be as little as one to two days. This is a process that is often done in compliment to a facial. This
is healthy for the skin and skin specific facials are used to hydrate and cleanse the skin to allow for optimal results.
Microdermabrasion may be performed to decrease the appearance of superficial hyperpigminetation and
photo damage as well as dimimish fine lines, wrinkles, and shallow acne scars. Removing the dead skin will aid in the
penetration of skin care products by up to 50% and make-up will go on much more smoothly. All Facial and Microdermabrasion
session include a consulation and assessment with a professional trained esthetician.
