What is a Microdermabrasion?

Using microcrystals, the procedure can exfoliate the skin, removing many of the effects aging and sun damage taken on the epidermis. A vacuum is then used to clean up the crystals and the dead skin, taking years off your face and leaving you with healthy, glowing skin. While this is a non-invasive procedure done in day spas and non-medically supervised health clinics on a daily basis, the benefits of doing any dermatological procedure under the supervision and care of a licensed medical facility cannot be overstated. As licensed, educated, and experienced practitioners of a host of medical and non-medical cosmetic procedures, we offer a secure, safe environment for those who wish to obtain the best from their microdermabrasion.

Many confuse microdermabrasion with the more invasive, similar sounding dermabrasion. While both techniques benefit the skin, dermabrasion is done through either sanding the skin or with a laser, both of which can lead to a moderate recovery time, and introduce a certain level of discomfort and pain. Microdermabrasion requires no such recovery time and is used toward the same benefits.
