HOW WE TREAT
What Is Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive skin treatment where a diamond tip abrasive applicator is used together with a vacuum to remove the outermost layer of the skin. This clears away old, dead skin cells so that the fresh new skin is exposed.
Microdermabrasion is a great treatment to incorporate into your regular skin care plan as it encourages higher cell turnover and keeps your skin looking fresh and youthful. Multiple treatments with Microdermabrasion will also help to ‘buff out’ the appearance of fine lines, pigmentation, scarring and other skin concerns. The treatment can be performed on Face, Neck, Shoulders, Hands
