Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic technique that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical way to freshen and rejuvenate your skin. PureSkin uses a diamond-tipped wand to slough off the top layer (epidermis) of your skin and stimulates new skin growth. This technique also helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. Collagen is a protein in your skin that makes skin appear taut and smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin.
WHAT ARE THE PROCEDURES?
Each treatment will last about a half-hour to an hour. You may feel a mild scratching as the procedure removes the superficial skin cells. Additionally, you’ll notice a vibrating sensation akin to a massage. There is also a suction mechanism to lift off the dead skin. PureSkin uses the ‘New’ diamond-tip wand that is gently moved across your skin to exfoliate.
WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?
Microdermabrasion is great for treating the following:
Eliminate age spots and blackheads.
Eliminate hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin).
Exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance.
Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores.
Treat acne and the scars left by acne.
