What is microdermabrasion?
Your skin is constantly exposed to the elements which can affect tone, texture, and vibrancy. Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic service that exfoliates the skin to restore health and a beautiful complexion. The goal is to gently remove the damaged upper layer of skin to encourage regeneration of healthy, younger looking skin.
The device used to perform microdermabrasion sprays tiny microcrystals that will remove dead skin cells.
What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?
One of the benefits of microdermabrasion is all the different cosmetic concerns that can be addressed. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, microdermabrasion can help.

How long does it take to see results?
Microdermabrasion sessions are painless and typically take about 30 minutes. There is no downtime, although you should expect your skin to be mildly pink or red in the treated areas. Skin may also feel a little dry or tight. This is normal, and should subside after a few hours. It’s important to avoid the sun for up to a week after treatment and wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Most people need a series of treatments to see optimal results.
What areas can be treated?
Microdermabrasion is safe for treating many different areas of the body. The most common are the face, chest, neck, and back.
