Microdermabrasion FAQs

  • What is Microdermabrasion?

    Years of sun exposure and the aging process take their toll on the skin, creating lines, wrinkles, and changes in texture and color. Not only is the face a likely victim of these changes, but the neck, chest, cleavage, arms and hands may be affected as well. Microdermabrasion can reduce the effects of aging on our skin.

    Microdermabrasion is a treatment that improves wrinkles, skin texture and color by removing the very top layer of dead skin leaving it more supple and vibrant. Microdermabrasion also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. Microdermabrasion treatments are administered by trained medical personnel.

    Microdermabrasion is also known as “the lunch-time peel.” A wonderful alternative to laser or chemical peels, microdermabrasion is non-invasive, pain-free, and non-surgical and requires no down time after treatment. The length of the treatment and number of treatments needed vary depending on skin type and condition. Results are gradual but highly effective. Most people experience softer, smoother skin after their first treatment.
