What is Microdermabrasion?
If you’re seeking brighter, healthier skin that taps its own natural ability to repair itself, you should consider microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion gently removes epidermal cells to treat a vast range of skin imperfections. It is especially effective for skin aging. The powerful peeling action triggers the skin’s repair mechanism to produce healthy epidermal tissue growth, improving skin tone and elasticity.
Microdermabrasion has proven benefits for those with fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, congested or asphyxiated skin, dull or dehydrated skin, or superficial scarring. It has the ability to increase cell turnover, eliminate dead skin cells, and increase the absorption of active ingredients. Ultimately, it leaves you with brighter, smoother skin.
Almost anyone is an ideal candidate for microdermabrasion. The one exception is those who have active acne or extremely sensitive skin.
