Microdermabrasion is essentially a powerful mechanical exfoliation with either the original crystal microdermabrasion technology or the newer diamond-tip microdermabrasion.

Although we have both we focus on the use of diamond-tip because it achieves the same results but with less discomfort and without the crystal residue at the end of the treatment. It is also usually better for sensitive skin.

It works by removing the uppermost layer of dead skin cells, getting results you can't achieve with a home microdermabrasion kit, which is basically a scrub for the face that is often too abrasive and can even irritate skin.

The Microdermabrasion benefits are many: softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring, decreases pore size, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots.

Microdermabrasion also makes it easier for skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.

Because the machine and tips can be adjusted depending on skin type and condition, even people with sensitive skin can get a treatment from a skilled esthetician. It takes about 30 minutes and there's no down-time for the skin to recover. That's why it's also sometimes called a "lunchtime peel."

It is important to realize that you have taken off the outermost layer of the skin, which is also its protection, so this is not the time to go to the beach. Be careful with your skin a few days after the microdermabrasion treatment: don't do vigorous exercise and don't expose your skin to the sun. Wear a gentle physical sunscreen, even if it is a cloudy day.
