Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that leaves the skin appearing softer and brighter. This procedure is designed to treat and correct many common issues such as light scarring, discolorations, sun damage, rough patches, and active acne. The process is designed to exfoliate your skin, remove the build-up of dead skin cells, and expose new undamaged skin layers providing you with a refreshed and more youthful appearance.
Our staff will see that you are relaxed and comfortable before starting your treatment with a gentle steam flowing from a wand above your face, usually no more than 20 minutes. The steam is designed to open the follicles and we use an oxygenated steam to help destroy any bacteria, which is ideal for acne. Aromatherapy can be added to the steam to calm or stimulate cells. We then cleanse your face, neck, and upper chest area using a special Clarisonic ultrasonic brush. This is like a relaxing massage that cleanses the skin.
After the preparing the skin, we begin the micodermabrasion. Our technicians use a specialized tool with a diamond abrasive tip to massage the skin while gently suctioning away dead skin cells. This technique smooths your skin by removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. We can spot treat any areas requiring a little extra attention, and improve hyperpigmentation with the combination of microdermabrasion and lighteners. This process will also help to increase your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion.
With your skin fresh and exposed, the next step is the application of a finishing mask to return your skin to the correct pH levels which the previous steps may have changed. Our masks contain a high concentration of active ingredients that are designed for your unique skin type. The mask is then gently removed with a warm towel.
Immediately following the mask is a soothing eye treatment. The eye creams are again designed for your individual skin needs, whether it is to address fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness, under-eye darkness, or signs of stress and fatigue. A lightweight moisturizer or heavier face cream is designed to either stimulate or calm the skin as needed. During this step, our staff is happy to perform eyebrow waxing, shaping, hair removal, and eyelash and brow tinting at your request.
The final and most critical step is to apply moisturizers, and an appropriate sunscreen. With the fresh skin that is exposed during the Microdermabrasion process it is important to take precautions against UV damage. It is imperative following any facial treatment to have quality UVA and UVB sunscreen protection against the sun’s effects on your skin. Our office carries many different SPF’s and varieties of sunscreen protection for every lifestyle.
Frequently clients leave with sample products that are helpful for their individual skin type. Our goal is to ensure that each and every client leaves our office with a glow.
