Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion

The Skin is the largest organ of the body and provides many essential functions. It is a most active covering, undergoing constant change and renewal. Cells from the basal layer consistently migrate to the surface and differentiate to replace the ever present layer of dead and damaged cells. Many skin problems are caused by, or are associated with, excessive build-up of dead cells that can make your skin flake or become thick and dull, hence the need for exfoliation.

Microdermabrasion is a revolutionary method of exfoliating the epidermis. This safe, effective method of exfoliating is not new however, it has been popular in Europe for well over a decade. The typical system is composed of a compressor and a suction pump (vacuum) that works in unison to project sterile micro-crystals of aluminum-oxide onto the skin with variable intensity. The unit simultaneously vacuums the area to remove the exfoliated dead skin cells, leaving the skin instantly smoother.

Conditions that can benefit from Microdermabrasion therapy include:

  • Fine facial lines
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven texture
  • Large pores

Salicylic Peel:

Different from Glycolic or Lactic acids, Salicylic acid works within the deeper layers of the skin and is best suited for acneic skin. Salicylic acid is an antibacterial, oil soluble solution which is considered one of the best peels for relieving acne conditions.

Lactic Peel:

Lactic acid is much larger in molecular size, cannot penetrate as fast or as deeply as Glycolic acid, and is considered a moisturizing agent. For these reasons, Lactic acid is best suited for people who require a less aggressive exfoliation and milder approach to skin rejuvenation. A gradual smoothing, brightening, and clearing of skin blemishes will be accomplished.
