Aesthetics: Microderm Abrasion
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive FDA approved alternative to laser and chemical peels for skin resurfacing. Using a spray of fine crystals, dead, pigmented and sun damaged skin is gently cleared away to reveal softer, youthful and radiant skin. Fine lines, uneven skin tones and acne scars become less pronounced. Furthermore, it enhances the penetration of therapeutic agents (medications for acne, etc.)
MicrodermAbrasion is safe for men and women, age 14 and above and for all skin types. It is typically performed on the face, neck, arms, and hands. There is no downtime after the treatment
Given below are before and after pictures of 4 treatments over a 8 week period.

Results can be enhanced by combining the treatment with our Custom Chemical Peels.
The effectiveness of the treatment depends on the skill of the provider, the quality of crystals used, and the power rating of the instrument used. High-powered instruments and high-quality crystals are only available to medical professionals.
