What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a widely used procedure performed by licensed aestheticians. It involves the exfoliation of the outermost layer (stratum corneum) of the skin. This is accomplished by the projection of a natural mineral known as corundum crystals in a fine layer over the skin. The procedure is gentle and respects the integrity of the skin, with literally no recovery time for most people.
What skin problems can be treated with Microdermabrasion?
- Coarse skin texture

How many treatments will I need?
Age, lifestyle, and skin conditions determine the number of treatments required to achieve desired results. During the complementary consultation, your skin type and condition will be determined. Your esthetician will be able to evaluate your skin, explain the needed procedure and tell you the estimated number of sessions. Clients usually report a noticeable improvement after just one treatment.
