Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is basically an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that leaves skin looking softer and brighter. It is a ā€œlunch timeā€ procedure which it takes less than an hour, approximately only 45 minutes, to complete. The main purpose of the treatment is to stimulate the production of new skin cells and collagen. Microdermabrasion uses fine diamond tips to gently scrape off, then vacuum, the outer keratin layer of the skin. Less aggressive than laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion is a non-surgical treatment that does not require an anesthetic (yes – you donā€™t need numbing medicine!) and works on all skin types and colors.
