Exfoliates the dry, damaged, outermost layers of skin cells to expose the healthy, radiant skin beneath. May help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks, uneven skin tone and large pores. For our microdermabrasion treatments, we use the Parisian Peel system. Parisian Peel, a well-known leader in providing equipment and products for non-surgical cosmetic procedures, uses tiny crystals rather than chemicals to reveal radiant skin.
Microdermabrasion directs a stream of tiny crystals over the skin's surface. The technique combines pressure and suction to remove damaged skin cells, revealing a polished, revitalized complexion.
First we will start by a cleanse and tone of your skin. Then, while you wear protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the crystals, your practioner will apply the crystal stream to your face, making one or more passes as needed depending on the condition being treated and its severity.
Following the treatment, the aesthetician will cleanse your skin of residual crystals and add moisturizer and SPF protection to your skin. Some clients may have minimal redness in the treated area. You should minimize your sun exposure for five to seven days after treatment and use an SPF of 30 or higher.
Microdermabrasion treatments have limited or no downtime and most people resume daily activities immediately. Side effects include temporary redness and increased sun sensitivity. Some patients experience additional side effects that are generally minimal and temporary. Those risks include temporary discoloration of the treated area, minimal swelling and scarring.
