Medical Microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment and will make skin look younger softer and more radiant. It does this by cleaning the pores and stimulating new collagen growth. The effects are immediate. Crystals are directed at the skin and usually removed by a vacuum process. It is quite similar to sand blasting. The treatment is gradual and progressive with each session. It is often combined with collagen stimulating products and skin peels.
The best part of the treatment is that it is painless and has no "downtime" which means that you can have the treatment in your lunch hour and return to work in the afternoon.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive epidermal treatment that removes the dead and damaged surface layer of skin cells to reveal healthier new skin cells underneath. This stimulates the deeper dermal layer of skin to produce more collagen and elastin, giving the skin a younger, firmer, more supple appearance. Microdermabrasion improves:
• Fine Lines and Wrinkles
• Stretch Marks
• Post-Acne Scarring
• Aging Hands and Body Parts
• Environmental Damage
• Penetration of Topical Medications and Products
Your skin is made up of two main layers, the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is the layer closest to the outside world. It's a set of dead skin cells on top of another layer of cells that are in the process of maturing. The topmost layer is called the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum mostly acts as a barrier between the outside world and the lower skin layers. It keeps all but the smallest molecules from getting through. The treatments help regenerate epidermal cell structure of the skin, increasing its elasticity and collagen generation. The epidermis grows back thicker and smoother as a result.
