First, a diamond-tip microdermabrasion head exfoliates the skin, which allows a patient-specific skin serum to deeply penetrate for smooth, glowing skin. Microdermabrasion encourages new cell growth and addresses your specific skin condition, giving you the skin revitalization you want. Our treatments include full face and neck. There is no down time and treatments can be done in less than 45 minutes. Other treatment areas such as hands, feet or back can be treated upon request.
How Microdermabrasion Works
The body’s skin is made up of two main layers, the epidermis and dermis. The epidermis is the nearest to the outside world. It’s a level of dead skin cells on top of another layer of skin cells that are in the maturation process. The topmost layer is called the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum mostly acts as a barrier between the outside world and the lower skin layers. It keeps all but the smallest molecules from getting through. All of the action in microdermabrasion takes place at the level of the stratum corneum.
When you apply lotions or creams to your skin, some of the moisture in them passes through the stratum corneum, but not all of it. This layer is home to many minor skin imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes. By safely removing the stratum corneum layer, your skincare products become more effective and you unlock the full benefit of the anti-aging properties found in medical-grade products.
Our microdermabrasion device is maintained to the same high standard as all of our other medical equipment. After a treatment, the wands are soaked in an anti-bacterial antiseptic solution, scrubbed down like a surgical instrument, and then run through an sterilizing autoclave to achieve a totally cleansing. Because you are getting your procedure done in a medical office, you can be assured that the equipment, the office, the treatment room, the healthcare professional providing your treatment, and the treatment itself are medical grade regarding sterility and technician experience/training.
All aspects of the treatment are held to all the standards required of a medical office.
