Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that often uses tiny crystals to exfoliate and remove the superficial of dry, dead skin cells. It also encourages the formation of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance.
How often you should get a microdermabrasion facial depends on your skincare needs and finances. Most in-office procedures pack a bigger punch and treatments are often scheduled at 1-2 month intervals. If you use a handheld device at home it usually requires daily use and doesn’t penetrate as deep into the skin. Our machines do a better job at the treatment to produce better results.
Candidates for Microdermabrasion
People with fine facial lines or wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, uneven pigmentation, clogged pores, skin texture problems, or minor scars are good candidates for microdermabrasion. Other patients with rosacea or acne may also benefit from microdermabrasion treatments. The soft spray of the microcrystals can erase or improve skin imperfections and conditions by removing the top layers of dead and damaged skin cells to reveal new, fresh skin. The ideal candidates for microdermabrasion are healthy adults who have relatively minor skin conditions or imperfections.

We proudly offer the GentlePeelTM microdermabrasion system, a much talked about particle peel treatment. GentlePeelTM skin exfoliation therapy is a fast and efficient way of removing old or damaged skin cells and enhancing the vitality and clarity of the skin. Regular treatments will maintain a youthful appearance, especially when part of a well-organized regimen of skin care. What’s more, GentlePeelTM offers a viable, cost-effective alternative to more expensive, invasive techniques. The GentlePeelTM technique relies on the delivery of minute aluminum oxide crystals to the surface of the skin. These particles gently remove layers of the epidermis as the operator moves the handpiece across the surface of the skin. The GentlePeel unit is the only system of its kind that uses sophisticated electronics to control critical aspects of the treatment. A series of treatments may eliminate smaller problems while deeper problems such as hyper-pigmentation and scars may take 15 to 36 treatments. The key is progressive treatment with no downtime while improving your skin’s overall beauty and health.
