Microdermabrasion (sometimes referred to as Microderm) is a non-invasive, pain-free exfoliation treatment that polishes the skin, accelerates the cell renewal process, and improves overall skin texture.
This treatment is especially helpful in treating light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks. Microdermabrasion is also an ideal way to:
- Improve age spots and blackheads
- Improve hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin)
- Exfoliate skin for a refreshed appearance
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores
- Treat acne and the scars left by acne
How Microdermabrasion Works
During our Microdermabrasion treatment, an instrument is used to gently blast sodium bicarbonate crystals onto the skin while a suction picks up any excess crystals and dead skin cells, all while carefully removing the topmost layer of skin. This process refreshes dull skin, cleans out pores, and improves superficial lines on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
As a result, your skin is softer, smoother, and more radiant with an amazing glow! Our Microdermabrasion treatment is then followed up with a hydrating facial, allowing you to get back to your daily routine right after.
Dermaplaning exfoliates your skin through the use of a 10-gauge scalpel that gently scrapes the top layer of dead skin cells and “peach fuzz” from your face. Not only does removing that annoying peach fuzz mean it won’t show up in certain lighting or cause caking with your makeup, but smoother, post-dermaplaning skin will also allow for skincare products to penetrate the skin more fully.
Is Dermaplaning a Good Option for Me?
Dermaplaning is perfect for any skin type, including those with dry skin. If your skin is acne-prone or if you have deep cystic acne, we recommend waiting for breakouts to clear before trying out dermaplaning.
It’s also a great option if you’re pregnant or nursing but still want to exfoliate your skin. There’s no risk to you or your baby since there are no harsh chemicals involved.
You’ll experience no downtime and no adverse side effects. We recommend wearing sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher after the procedure since your skin will be more sensitive to the sun.
