MICRODERMABRASION

 

 

Skin-scape Micro-dermabrasion

Remove the accumulation of dead skin cells to improve the overall texture of your face.

 Integrative Micro-dermabrasion

This treatment is for the health and recovery of facial skin using deep exfoliation by removing dead skin cells, increasing blood circulation using specific massage techniques, and detoxifies the skin through skilled use of morpho-lymphatic drainage.

 

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical exfoliating procedure, done individually or in a series, for revitalizing and maintaining the skin's appearance and smoothness.  It can be used to address problem areas on the face or body.  Also known as the "lunchtime peel,"  one session generally takes 30 minutes or so, and there is neither special preparation before the visit nor recuperation afterward. 

Microdermabrasion has been used successfully for years in Europe, and is now one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in this country.  Our office uses the new SkinScape™ Plus Microdermabrasion System, because of its quality and dependability. Furthermore, it is the particular brand of equipment endorsed by the world leader in laser skin resurfacing technology.

A precise stream of very fine crystals is directed through the SkinScape handpiece onto the skin to loosen the layer of dead skin cells that form on the surface.  It then suctions away both the skin debris and the crystals to reveal fresh invigorated skin.  Typically, only the uppermost layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, is removed.  This is why there is minimal discomfort and virtually no recuperation.  In select cases, however, a more aggressive abrasion may be chosen, and appropriate aftercare will be discussed.

Patients have been thrilled with the effect microdermabrasion has on:

  • Improving dull or uneven skin color.
  • Relieving clogged pores and blackheads.
  • Softening general roughness or thickened patches of dead skin (e.g. elbows, hands, knees, & feet).
  • Refining the appearance of fine, crepey lines and large pores.
  • Removing surface debris to allow better absorption of skin care products.
