How It Works

The microdermabrasion treatment consists of exfoliating the skin with diamond-tipped technology to reveal a healthy layer that had been hidden beneath dead skin cells. The treatment takes no longer than an hour to complete and is usually repeated about every 10-14 days for a six-week period for best results. Microdermabrasion is virtually painless and requires absolutely no down time, so you can get your skin glowing and continue with the rest of your day!

What It Treats

Microdermabrasion treats imperfections such as acne, aging spots, and wrinkles. Studies show approximately 17 million people suffer from acne in the U.S. alone; if you’re one of them, this treatment can help! Depending on the severity of the condition, acne can often leave deep scars in the skin’s tissue that cannot be treated topically. Because it penetrates the layers of skin deep down, microdermabrasion actually takes years off of your skin’s texture and consistency. Helping to combat trouble spots, it will rid your complexion of the old cells that were affected by the sun or other age-related factors.
