Microdermabrasion is a popular tool in the pursuit of turning back the clock.
Revealing a Younger-Looking You.
Just below the surface of your skin lies a face that’s a little softer, smoother, and younger-looking than the one you currently wear. It’s microdermabrasion’s job to uncover it. The process is simple: Not only does it buff away the old skin, it also sends messages to the cells that they need to regenerate faster, producing a fresh new surface. Over the course of several treatments, skin can become markedly smoother and brighter.
There are two methods for microdermabrasion. In the first, a handheld applicator dispenses a pressurized stream of aluminum crystals as it glides across the skin’s surface, similar to the action of a sandblaster. An attached vacuum and pump then dispose of the loosened skin cells. We use a wand with a finely textured tip of diamond chips. A technician passes it over the skin, the suction mechanism simultaneously draws skin to the device and whisks away the removed flakes.
