Dramatic results, absolutely! Microdermabrasion is a progressive, non-invasive rapid exfoliation process that has virtually no side effects. This technique is a highly effective treatment for enhancing skin texture. The reduction of lines, acne scars, burn scars and hyper pigmentation is also indicative of the effectiveness of this treatment. This safe and reliable procedure was cleared for use in the United States in 1996 and has been used in Europe for decades.
During a microdermabrasion treatment, the machine’s hand piece propels a specific form of baking soda, inert natural mineral crystal or organic grains, called media, on the surface of the skin, causing immediate exfoliation. The vacuum action of the machine stimulates blood and lymphatic flow, which helps accelerate the skin repair process, as well as remove debris from the skin.
Microdermabrasion does not involve pain, trauma or bleeding. Unlike chemical peels, the treatment allows you to continue working and participating in your leisure activities with no down time. There is no peeling or crusting as seen with chemical peels. This technology is more effective than glycolic peels for stimulating fibroblast cells, which are the cells responsible for our own, natural collagen production. This means the treatment is not only an efficient deep exfoliation; it tones and firms the skin as well.
You will see an immediate difference in the skin after only one treatment, although four to eight treatments are typically required for cumulative, lasting results. Microdermabrasion is an extraordinary alternative for clients seeking a more natural, non-chemical opportunity in skin care.
In addition to the refined results of Microdermabrasion, integrating certified organic facial products that nourish and reinforce the skin is truly a winning combination.
