Microdermabrasion

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a form of Physical exfoliation, it removes the debris from the skins epidermis stimulating new cell growth.  The suction stimulates the blood flow to the surface which helps nourish the skin cells. It can be a single treatment but is much more effective when done in a series.  Pigmentation, fine lines/wrinkles, scaring and new collagen are some of the conditions to be treated.

Microdermabrasion, can be accompanied with other treatments such as  a peel and can be completed in different packages. This way you have a combination of Physical and Chemical exfoliation.
