Microdermabrasion

Men and women who have realistic expectations, in good health, with good skin tone and follow with appropriate at home skin care regimen have great success.

This is a gentle and quick application with virtually no discomfort and no down time. No time off from work is required. Normal activities resulting in perspiring may cause a stinging affect to the treated area. Microdermabrasion is a controlled, non-invasive, non-acid, non-surgical, non-laser, non-chemical peel.

Do not wear contact lenses to treatment sessions. They can be placed in after treatment.
Be off Glycolics, AHAs and any Retinol products 48 hours before and after treatment.
A minimum of four treatments or more are recommended in order to achieve desired results.
No suntan beds to be used for two weeks post treatment.
Sunscreen of a tleast SPF 15 to be applied and re-applied during sun exposure.

The most common areas treated are the face, neck, decollete, shoulders, back, hands, knees and elbows. However, any skin surface, on any part of the body, that needs improvement will benefit.

All skin types and color will benefit from this process. Aging, congested, flaky, dry, devitalized, thickened, blemished, dull and sun-damaged skin will be rejuvenated and refreshed. Blotchiness, uneven skin tones and texture will be improved. Microdermabrasion will reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, chicken pox scars, brown/age spots, fine-lined wrinkles (rhytides), hyperkeratosis (overgrowth of the horny layer), pores less prominent and other skin imperfections.

It is an effective, safe form of gentle exfoliation using inert corundum crystals to remove dead or damaged skin cells and improve the skin's appearance, resulting in more youthful skin. END RESULTS: Skin that is softer, smoother, brighter, clearer, fresher, and younger looking.

Sometimes you can experience some redness, especially if the skin is very sensitive. In these cases redness will be gone in a few hours.

Corundum is an aluminum oxide mineral from which the gemstones ruby and sapphire and the abrasive material emery are made. Next only to the diamond, it is the hardest natural known substance. Corundum is an inert substance, lacking in active properties (chemically). Each manufacturer will have the MSDA analysis available for consumer review.
