What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is effective in reducing fine lines, age spots and mild acne scars yielding a refreshed, healthier glow to the skin. It stimulates the production of skin cells and collagen. It has proven to be a very popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure. In addition, microdermabrasion allows improved penetration of medical skin care products as well as light chemical peels. This non-surgical treatment requires no anesthetic and is effective on all skin colors and types.

There is no downtime following the treatments. A personalized medical skin care regimen is recommended to maximize your results.
