Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure to create superficial skin resurfacing.
The microdermabrasion machine uses vacuum and diamond tips via a hand piece to remove superficial layers of the skin. As the crystals make contact, layers of the superficial skin are exfoliated, then vacuumed away with the dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion rejuvenates the skin in a number of ways.
The combination of skin exfoliation and slight vacuum stimulates fibroblasts (collagen cells) to produce new healthy, living cells in the superficial layer of the skin. As a result, your skin becomes smoother in texture and tighter with a fresh, clean look. It is called the “Lunch-Time Peel” because of its quick, easy application and no recovery time. You are able to return to work, use make-up and cleanse daily almost immediately after treatment. Microdermabrasion is performed in a progressive, rather than aggressive, manner.
Optimum results are obtained through a series of treatments, typically for up to eight treatments, spaced 10-14 days apart.
There is virtually no healing time required with microdermabrasion. The average time for complete cell regeneration is 4-5 weeks. At the end of that time, significant results are evident in the majority of patients.
