Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells. According to licensed medical aesthetician Maria Barry at Union Square Laser Dermatology, microdermabrasion machines can buff and polish the skin using a stream of fine crystals or a diamond tip.
Microdermabrasion is a non-abrasive, fast results facial procedure that uses machinery technology to treat the face, neck & décolletage. Being a mechanical exfoliation, dead and dull surface layers of the skin slough off, stimulating an increase in collagen production and rejuvenation.
This advanced treatment can be used as a stand-alone maintenance treatment or upgraded as a booster treatment to most relaxation facials. For best results, we recommend a series of gentle Micro treatments, with treatments scheduled 7-10 days apart. Each procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to perform and there is no downtime for the skin to recover.
One of the most important benefits of Microdermabrasion is its anti-ageing effect. Treated areas show visible improvements in the tone, texture, and colour of skin. Microdermabrasion can also provides excellent results for the following conditions:
- Softens fine lines and wrinkles
- Helps smooth coarsely textured skin
- Helps reduce acne and acne scars
- Minimize enlarged and open pores
- Good for dull, stressed or sun damaged skin
- Reduces skin pigmentation
