What Is A Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a deep-cleansing facial that is safe, quick, convenient and proven effective for all skin colors and types.
Microdermabrasion is one of the most frequently sought after non-surgical, non-invasive skin care treatments available. It has been performed successfully for years in Europe and is now one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in this country for:
- Cleaning enlarged and clogged pores, blackheads, and whiteheads
- Fight signs of aging
- Reducing fine lines and minor scars
- Removing sun and age spots
- Restoring a healthy, smooth feel to skin
- Treating acne blemishes
Microdermabrasion is safe, quick, convenient and proven effective for all skin colors and types, from light to dark, dry to oily. This age-defying process can give a brighter, smoother appearance to any skin area in need of exfoliation such as the face, neck, hands, and chest. Whether you have a problem area or just want a quick pick-me-up; brighter, smoother skin is waiting for you in just a few treatments.
Crystal Clear Benefits of Microdermabrasion
A precise stream of aluminum oxide crystals is directed through a hand piece onto the skin. This, in turn, loosens and exfoliates the top layer of dead cells. The skin is simultaneously vacuumed to reveal a fresher, healthier looking you. Microdermabrasion promotes the production of new cells in the basal (deepest) layers of the dermis and stimulates the growth of collagen to smooth further and improve skin tone and appearance. Best results are achieved through a series of treatments and a regular maintenance program.
Microdermabrasion Can Be For All Skin Types
Microdermabrasion appeals to younger patients as a great way to reduce occasional blemish flare-ups, a deep cleansing facial and as preventative skin care to fight the first signs of aging before they appear. For optimum results, Microdermabrasion involves a series of treatments. True, modest results may be achieved with a single visit. However, it is unrealistic and unfounded to expect significant change from just one treatment. In the final analysis, the number of treatments depends on the type of skin you have. Our highly trained professional technicians will suggest a personal treatment plan designed to reach your desired result. Microdermabrasion cannot remove tattoos, major acne scarring, other deep scars, or deep wrinkles. It treats only the skin’s outer layer (stratum corneum). This being the case, serious side effects are not an issue. Being totally non-invasive, there is virtually no discomfort, down time or recovery. Patients typically experience some redness for about an hour after the procedure. Healing time for most is just a few days.
Look Good. Feel Good.
Treatments usually last 20-30 minutes for the face and longer if you include your upper chest and hands. Some patients may experience a tightness and redness of the skin, comparing it to the feeling of mild sunburn. To restore moisture that is lost during treatment, we highly recommend daily application of moisturizer and skincare regimen. Formulated expressly for Advanced Laser Clinics, this unique nutrition for the skin uses specially selected ingredients to create a nourishing lotion that relieves discomfort and restores moisture while balancing the skin.
