WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells. We use a medical grade hand-held device with a diamond tip wand which is moved across the skin while also suctioning the dirt and dead cells.
This treatment is most effective in patients with fine lines, uneven pigmentation or clogged pores. It is an excellent procedure to help maximize the benefit of a regular topical regimen or chemical peel to keep skin feeling smooth, help pigment look more even and speed clearance of whiteheads.
Microdermabrasion requires no down time and does not present any serious risks when it is performed by a qualified provider. However, some people may experience slight skin irritation after microdermabrasion.
Treatments can be scheduled as close as 2 weeks apart. After a series of regular treatments has been completed, maintenance treatments are recommended twice a year. It is recommended to combine microdermabrasion with chemical peels or facials to maximize results.
WHAT IS A DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a safe, non-invasive treatment in which a special blade is held a forty-five degree angle and is gently moved along the skin, removing “peach fuzz” and dead skin cells. It can be performed as a standalone treatment or prior to other skincare treatments to enhance their effectiveness. This treatment does not require downtime and will effectively smooth acne scars to give you the smoothest possible skin.
