What is Microdermabrasion?

September 28, 2017

As you know, the transition from summer to fall can be one of the hardest on our largest (and most visible!) organ: the skin. We have spent countless days in the sun, taking a dip in chlorinated pools, going on adventures and earning new scars, but how do we get rid of the evidence of a summer well spent?

Microdermabrasion may be the answer you are looking for. Microdermabrasion is a procedure that removes the superficial layer of dead and dull skin cells.  We use a combination of finely ground crystals and suction to slough off the dead and dull skin cells, rejuvenating your skin in a way you are unable to with at-home treatments.

 

Microdermabrasion creates 'micro-injuries', stimulating collagen production. Collagen is very abundant when we are young, creating a smooth and 'bouncy' look to our skin, but we lose that protein as we age. Microdermabrasion accelerates your skins ability to repair tone and texture, shrinks enlarged pores, erases fine lines, mild scars, sun spots, and uneven pigmentation 

 

Are you struggling with acne scarring? A microdermabrasion treatment stimulates blood flow, encouraging new cell production, which improves the elasticity and clarity of your skin.

People with melasma, a form of hyper-pigmentation caused by a combination of ultraviolet  light and hormones, respond well to microdermabrasion when done in a series of treatments and good at-home care. 

 

Microdermabrasion may not be right for you if your skin has open injuries, an active sunburn, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, fragile capillaries, widespread acne, or rosacea. For those who are good candidates, Microdermabrasion is not a magic cure all, but it is a start towards the beautiful, glowing skin you deserve.
