Microdermabrasion started in Europe and has been performed in the United States since 1993. It is the simplest way to evenly and safely exfoliate the skin without chemicals or laser. The process rejuvenates the skin by using ultra-fine crystals to remove the upper layers of the epidermis, increasing the production of collagen and elastin. This results in firmer, more youthful looking skin.
Ideal for treating a variety of skin blemishes, microdermabrasion will subtly minimize fine lines and wrinkles, acne and scarring, enlarged pores, and lighten age spots. Results are seen after the first treatment though multiple treatments produce the better-looking skin. The best results are typically obtained with 4 to 5 treatments every 7 to 10 and thereafter once every 4 to 6 weeks.
