Our skin is made up of two layers: the dermis (inner layer) and the epidermis (outer layer). Throughout our aging process, these layers grow and die. As a result, dead skin cells are substituted by new ones. However, this cycle slows down as we get older. Consequently, our skin starts to look duller, while imperfections and wrinkles become more apparent. Most of these blemishes are contained within the epidermis.

Microdermabrasion or ‘power peel’ is a mechanical and non-invasive skin resurfacing technique by using a special applicator with an abrasive surface that gently exfoliates or polishes away the outer layer of dead skin cells, while stimulating collagen growth, to expose healthy fresh skin that looks and feels smoother. Fine lines, blemishes, dull skin and sun spots can be improved, particularly with consistent treatments. Products such as moisturizers, creams and lotions are more effortlessly absorbed and thus more effective after microdermabrasion treatment. This is a painless, low-risk, with no downtime skin treatment that can be added to your beauty routine.

Microdermabrasion is considered a harmless procedure for most skin types and colors. Folks might consider getting the procedure if they have the following skin concerns:


   fine lines and wrinkles

   hyperpigmentation, age spots and brown spots

►   enlarged and clogged pores

   acne and acne scars

   blackheads and/or white heads

   stretch marks

   dull-looking skin complexion

   uneven skin tone and texture

   sun damage

   rough, thick or dry skin


You will notice a healthy glow for a few days following microdermabrasion, but the best outcomes can be seen after repetitive treatments. The quantity of treatments recommended for greatest results can range from five to twelve, spaced two to four weeks apart. Maintenance of results requires periodic repeat treatments after the initial regimen is accomplished.

Microdermabrasion treatments take approximately 45 minutes from start to finish.

NOTE: Individual results may vary.
