The precision headpiece directs a continuous stream of very fine crystals (made out of aluminum oxide) across the skin. The gently abrasive action of the crystals remove the dead outer layer of the skin while bringing the smoother, softer under layer to skin to the surface. This action works equally effectively on all colors of skin. The microdermabrasion “peels” away many signs of aging, sun damage, acne scarring and pigment abnormalities. Several people looking for microdermabrasion have loved the results they receive.
Description of Procedure
This process utilizes crystals under pressure to gently remove dead or damaged skin cells to restore your appearance. Microdermabrasion does not need any type of sedation. Some patients may experiences some discomfort during the procedure.
Healing and Downtime
Most patients have smoother skin with no redness or flaking. Some may find skin may be light pink (flushed). This fades within a few hours. The skin feels soft and even. Patients may experience slight flaking or tightness within 24-48 hours of treatment. This is easily controlled with the post-peel kit provided. The patient can re-apply make up and return to work, play, etc. immediately after treatment. It takes 6 – 10 treatments to achieve best results, depending on the skin type and condition.
