Microdermabrasion is an intense exfoliation process that rejuvenates the skin by utilizing ultra-fine purified crystals to remove the upper layer of the skin. At the same time, the hand piece of the machine contains a vacuum tube that that sweeps up both the crystals and dead skin cells. This process exfoliates the skin, stimulating the production of collagen which results in firmer, smoother and more youthful looking skin. A crystal-free treatment option is also available that works by using a diamond tip that loosens the layers of dead skin cells that form on the surface and dull the skin’s appearance.
Microdermabrasion helps to diminish fine lines and discoloration while refining skin texture and hue. It improves acne prone skin, mild acne scarring, uneven skin texture, sun damaged skin, hyperpigmentation and melasma (the mask of pregnancy).
This treatment includes the face and neck.
SKINMEDICA® VITALIZE PEEL®
The Vitalize Peel® is a light, non-surgical chemical peel for sensitive skin that combines alpha- and beta- hydroxy acids, resorcinol and retinoic acid to gently slough away the outermost layers of the skin to reveal smoother, younger looking skin. The Vitalize Peel® has been clinically proven to help reduce the visible signs of aging.
This peel is suitable for all skin types, especially those with sensitivity that cannot tolerate more aggressive chemical peels or resurfacing agents. This peel helps improve skin texture and restores a youthful glow. It reduces fine lines and lightens hyperpigmention and sun damage and effectively treats acne prone skin.
After one Vitalize Peel®, you should notice an improvement in your skin’s texture and tone, a lessening of fine lines and a healthier, more youthful appearance.
Generally, results are cumulative and maximum benefits are seen with a series of three or more peels.
