Micro-Dermabrasion is a highly effective exfoliating treatment ideal for both men and women seeking to improve skin and tone texture. It is a safe procedure using a stream of fine crystals to gently buff away the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells to reveal healthier, younger-looking skin. The vacuum pressure is adjusted depending on the sensitivity and tolerance of the skin.
Micro-Dermabrasion can be customized according to your particular skin concerns. It can be catered to treat oily skin, dry skin, aging skin, and even sensitive skin!
This treatment is traditionally known to treat skin concerns on the face, but can also treat areas of the body.
Some of the skin concerns Micro-Dermabrasion can help improve are the following:
→ Reduce enlarged pores
→ Improve sun damage
→ Decrease acne scars
→ Congested skin
→ Oily skin
→ Minor acne
→ Surgical scars
→ Superficial age spots
→ Smooth uneven skin tone, and texture
→ Brighten dull-looking and dehydrated skin
→ Soften fine lines and wrinkles
Micro-Dermabrasion can be combined with Ultrasound and High-Frequency devices.
You will have visible results just after one treatment. For best results, 6 treatments are recommended.
