WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?
Microdermabrasion, also known as microderm, is one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments on the market. It is a quick and painless treatment that accelerates the rate at which dead skin is exfoliated, and jump-starts the proliferation of new skin cells. Microdermabrasion treatments soften fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring, decreases pore size and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation (also known as age spots).
HOW DOES MICRODERMABRASION WORK?
Microdermabrasion is essentially a powerful 30 minute mechanical exfoliation with a technologically advanced machine. The microdermabrasion device consists of a compressor that draws in air through a hand-held wand. When the wand touches the skin, a vacuum is created. Simultaneously, aluminum oxide crystals, also known as corundum (the second-hardest mineral next to diamonds), blast across the skin’s surface picking up dead surface skin cells along the way and disposing of them. It will remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, chest and hands and allows for new, more radiant, skin cells to present themselves which creates a youthful facial glow.
