What is Microdermabrasion?

The process uses a wand that exfoliates skin removing the dull layer of dead skin with corundum crystals leaving the skin soft and glowing. Miroderm awakens the skin to produced new cells more rapidly. All this stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which will result in a firmer, more youthful looking skin over time. The exfoliation helps to fade sunspots. The more treatments the more they will fade. It is ineffective on deeper wrinkles and scars.

What to Expect in a Microderm Facial-

It will be a pleasurable experience if done at any spa. The procedure is treated like a facial so it is a relaxing experience. Microderm is painless. Your skin is gone over with a wand in single smooth strokes. The wand puts your skin under tension but does not hurt. Pressure of crystal is controlled by a foot petal. More pressure is used to treat thicker skin and less on thinner skin like the area around the eyes. Moisturizers will be used will be used during the treatment to prep and sooth skin. Of course the more treatment you do, the more sessions you have, the better the results. Any one can benefit from this exfoliating treatment. Younger skin does require less treatments.
