Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive mechanical exfoliation treatment that removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells on the face, chest, neck or anywhere on the body. Mechanical exfoliation with or without particles, along with adjustable  vacuum pressure, allows for safe controlled exfoliation of the top layers of the epidermis. It’s an in-office procedure that is done by a trained skin care professional that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation (crystals, diamond tips, bristle tips) along with vacuum to sweep away the dead skin and helps with circulation. 

How microdermabrasion renews the skin.
The skin’s surface is disrupted, which stimulates fibroblast activity leading to collagen formation which leads to thicker, firmer skin. The top dead layers of skin are removed leaving your skin soft  and radiant. The suctioning and vacuuming stimulates blood flow bringing up O2 and nutrients to the skin's surface and helps to nourish the dermis. O2 also helps with acneic skin because oxygen kills the acne bacteria in blemishes. Our skin sloughs off at a slower rate with age, so the exfoliation of several layers of the stratum corneum leaves skin fresh and radiant. Microdermabrasion treatments are recommended every 2 weeks for problematic skin conditions or monthly for skin maintenance. 

Benefits of microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion can be done to decrease the appearance of superficial hyper-pigmentation, sun damage, diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and shallow acne scars which helps to even out the texture. Removing the dead skin will aid in the penetration of skin care products by up to 50% and makeup will go on much smoother.
