Many patients have very mild facial wrinkles and early changes in skin texture and color; these are signs of the photo aging process. Many other patients complain of acne, hyperpigmentation, or small scars. There are several non-invasive procedures available to address these problems. Treatment options include micro-dermabrasion (also known as the “lunch time peel”) and Aesthetic Peels.
Microdermabrasion takes off the top (dead) layer of the skin and vacuums the dead skin away. A diamond-tipped handpiece mechanically abrades the skin and a suction system vacuums the exfoliated particles away. We can use a mild chemical peel in combination with this treatment for greater rejuvenation. Our microdermabrasion machine is medical grade with corresponding strength. The machine must only be used by trained professionals.
The procedures are quick, non-invasive, and require little or no down time. The treatment allows the skin cells to turn over more quickly and opens the pores.
This gives the skin a more youthful, glowing appearance. Usually, several treatments are necessary in order to achieve the patient’s desired effect. Microdermabrasion is available to clients who wish to enhance the appearance of their skin, but are not yet ready for laser resurfacing.
