Tiny crystals gently sand away and vacuum the skin’s thin outer layer, composed primarily of dead skin cells. That process in turn prompts your skin to generate new cells and collagen. Collagen is a part of the connective tissue that helps keep the skin firm, supple and youthful. It is vital for skin elasticity. Microdermabrasion results in a fresher appearance. Although there are home kits available, microdermabrasion is a treatment best performed in a medical setting.

Is Microdermabrasion Right for Me?

Even if you’ve maintained a consistent skin care regimen and applied sunscreen daily, your skin may have lost its radiance. Anyone interested in rejuvenating their skin should consider microdermabrasion as an alternative to more invasive treatments. Microdermabrasion is ideal for:

  • Exfoliating your skin
  • Unclogging pores to treat mild acne
  • Removing dull, dry skin
  • Soften the appearance of certain surface scars

We often combine microdermabrasion with a superficial chemical peel to complete the rejuvenation. You may also be a good candidate for Rejuvapen™ Microneedling to target specific concerns.
