Is a skin
resurfacing treatment which utilizes a stream of micro-crystals projected onto
the skin and then vacuumed away. Refresh your skin with this non-invasive skin
resurfacing treatment. Outer layers of skin cells are removed, stimulating
collagen production and cellular renewal.
Crystal: Crystal Microdermabrasion
systems are the traditional treatment of choice and rely on tiny crystals that
are gently applied onto the skin to perform the exfoliating process.
This procedure is ideal for:
- Leaving skin feeling smooth, soft and renewed
- Minimizing fine lines and wrinkles
- Addressing hyper-pigmentation problems
- Acne and chicken pox scars
- Stretch marks
- Improving skin tone
- Correcting skin damage
How does it work?
Microdermabrasion is a gentle
exfoliation that is performed with a diamond-encrusted applicator tip.
The tip passes over the skins surface, and creates a gentle vacuum. The
diamond tip gently exfoliates approximately 20-25 microns of dead skin cells of
the outermost layer (stratum corneum). Once removed, it reveals one’s own
fresher, younger looking skin beneath. One Microdermabrasion is equal to three
30% glycolic peels or one 70% peel.
Note:If you are using products
containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), glycolic acid, Retin-A or vitamin C,
please discontinue use 48 hours prior to microdermabrasion.
