What is Micro-dermabrasion?

Micro-dermabrasion is progressive, non -invasive treatment that propels natural mineral crystals onto the surface of the skin for gentle epidermal abrasion that reveals newer, healthier, younger skin.

How does the treatment work?

Micro-dermabrasion works in two ways:
Correction: The speed of the crystal flow causes an abrasive action that gently removes the surface layers of the skin, allowing smoother, fresher skin to emerge.

Stimulation: The vacuum action helps to stimulate microcirculation, increasing the blood supply that provides nutrients needed for skin regeneration. It also stimulates formation of new collagen to improve skin texture and elasticity almost immediately. The procedure can be done during the lunch hour.

Is it painful?

The treatment is performed with little discomfort. At the most, patients might experience a slight sensation resembling a light sunburn. After treatment, the skin has a pink glow, and you can resume your normal functions.

Which skin problems can be treated?

This system gradually abrades epidermal cells to treat a vast range of skin problems:

• Sun damaged skin
• Blackheads
• Uneven and grandular skin
• Superficial scars
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Some stretch marks
• Enlarged Pores

Is it safe?

Micro Controlled Peeling offers a gentler alternative to more traumatic resurfacing treatments. It does not involve trauma or bleeding. The treatment is executed slowly and progressively, removing only superficial layers of the epidermis to reveal a youthful completion and glow. Your therapist has total control and works under the strictest hygiene standards, using sterile, disposable treatment nozzles to ensure your safely

How many treatments will I need?

Age and skin condition determine the number of treatments required to achieve optimum effect. For most skin disorders, a minimum of five treatments is recommended. Results can be seen in both the texture and the appearance of the skin after just one session. Closely spaced treatments, combined with maintenance sessions will result in better skin quality and may postpone the first lifting treatments for some years.

Can Micro Controlled Peeling be used on the body?

There are virtually no areas of the body that would not benefit from micro-dermabrasion. It can be performed on the entire face, neck, chest and back.

Micro-dermabrasion works on improving skin tone and restoring the skins elasticity and clarity.
