Micro-Dermabrasion Facial

Rediscover your skin with Micro-Dermabrasion (Micro Controlled Peeling)!

Micro-dermabrasion is a progressive, non-invasive treatment that propels natural mineral crystals onto the surface of the skin for gentle epidermal abrasion that reveals newer, healthier, younger skin. This can remove dead and flaking skin cells to create an immediate improvement in your skin's appearance. This unique approach stimulates the production of fresh young skin cells and collagen. It is the ultimate advancement in non-surgical, non-invasive skin conditioning.

Micro-dermabrasion treatments are gentle and take very little time, making them popular for today's busy people. These mild, yet effective treatments remove fine lines and age spots from around the eyes, lips and neck. Stretch marks and acne scars can also be dramatically reduced.

The micro controlled peeling gently removes epidermal cells to treat a vast range of skin imperfections. It is especially effective for skin aging. The powerful peeling action triggers the skin's repair mechanism to produce healthy epidermal tissue growth, improving skin tone and elasticity. Age and skin condition will determine the number of treatments required for optimum effect. More details on micro-dermabrasion ...

How does micro-dermabrasion work?
It works in two ways:
Correction: The speed of the crystal flow causes an abrasive action that gently removes the surface layers of the skin, allowing smoother, fresher skin to emerge.
Stimulation: The vacuum action helps to stimulate micro circulation, increasing the blood supply that provides nutrients needed for skin regeneration. It also stimulates formation of new collagen and elastin to improve skin texture and elasticity.

Is it painful/safe?
The treatment is performed with little discomfort. At the most, sensitive patients might experience a slight sensation resembling a light sunburn. After treatment, the skin has a pink glow, and you can resume your normal activities almost immediately. The procedure can be done during lunch hour.

Micro peeling offers a gentler alternative to more traumatic resurfacing treatments. It does not involve trauma or bleeding. The treatment is executed slowly and progressively, removing only superficial layers of the epidermis to reveal a youthful complexion and glow. Your therapist has total control and works under the strictest hygiene standards, using sterile, disposable treatment nozzles to ensure your safety.

Skin problems that can be treated
This system gradually abrades epidermal cells to treat a vast range of skin problems including sun-damaged skin, uneven and granular skin, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, blackheads and comedones, superficial scars and some stretch marks.
