what is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion removes the build up of dead skin cells and part of the outer epidermal surface of the skin. It results in a smoothing of the skin and gives it a healthy glow as well as promoting circulation and lymphatic drainage. Once the outer layer of the epidermis has been removed, new skin cells are made to renew the surface layer.

how do I prepare for microdermabrasion?

Your skin will be cleaned at the time of the procedure so try not to use any products or cosmetics. You should wear a high SPF (30+) sun cream after treatments as your skin will be more susceptible to sun damage while healing.

how does microdermabrasion work?

Microdermabrasion uses a mildly abrasive flow of crystals on a vacuum-type apparatus to “sand” and remove dead skin cells and part of the outer epidermal layer of skin. This gives the skin and instantaneous smooth feel and a healthy glow. The removal of some of the epidermal cells promotes healing of the skin helping to rejuvenate the skin.

how many treatments will I need?

Most clients will need 4-12 treatments at least a week apart to see a difference in the appearance of your skin, however, you will feel the softness after just one session. I often combine microdermabrasion with my other treatments to achieve the absolute best results possible.

are there side effects to facial peels?

Each skin type is different, and effects vary depending on what each person is using on their skin at home, as well as what medications they are using. It's extremely important to take the time and fill out the client intake form as accurately as possible. However, as this is a superficial treatment the potential side effects are usually minimal, such as a slight reddening of the skin for a few hours after a treatment, similar to that of a sunburn.  There is a chance of flaky and peeling skin, however, it’s very minimal, again, similar to that of a light sunburn.  The client may also feel their skin is a little more oily than usual for a couple of days while the skin is healing.
