Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the effects of aging. The doctor or aesthetician uses a device like a fine sandblaster to spray tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin. As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.
A typical microdermabrasion unit consists of a vacuum system, crystal supply jar, and application wand.
A special microdermabrasion tip combines a gentle vacuum and a jet of crystals. This crystal jet knocks off the dead and dying skin cells exposing new healthy skin cells. The vacuum stimulates blood circulation and collagen formation which also adds to the rejuvenation effect.
Treatment sessions may last from 30 -45 minutes. They are quite relaxing and painless!
