Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is an effective, non-surgical way to improve acne scars, fine wrinkles, and sunspots by exfoliating the top layers of the skin. No chemicals or lasers are used. Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates your skin, leaving it smooth and fresh. Microdermabrasion also stimulates cell production, helping your skin rejuvenate faster than normal. Also called the lunchtime peel, Microdermabrasion takes approximately 45 minutes and has no downtime.

Simply put, Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective ways to maintain healthy skin that feels as good as it looks. For those struggling with mild to moderate acne, Microderm can be a monthly preventative treatment. If you are noticing premature signs of aging such as skin discoloration, wrinkles, and sun damage, microdermabrasion can change the texture and imperfections in your skin, giving you a smoother, younger appearance.

Microderm is the preferred method to gently buff away dry and damaged skin layers. Or, if you are otherwise happy with the condition of your skin but are looking for a monthly “refresher,” Microderm offers a winning combination.
