The process helps to renew skin cells that contain collagen, which is why it feels softer and more pliable after the treatment. It also stimulates circulation.

Developed in Italy in the mid-1980s, microdermabrasion typically uses positive pressure to blast the outer layer of the skin with micro-fine crystals through a specially designed hand piece that is then used to vacuum the dead skin cells from the skin. The entire process only takes 30 minutes – less than a good lunch would take! There is no downtime associated with the procedure although some people find their skin is a little flushed for a short while after treatment. This usually doesn’t last for more than 20 minutes to an hour.

Microdermabrasion is safe for women and men of all colors and can be used to treat various skin conditions. Treatments have been clinically proven to help reduce wrinkles, fine lines in the skin, acne scars, and stretch marks. It can also effective for minimizing age and sun spots, enlarged and clogged pores, flaking and dry skin, and even uneven pigmentation.

People ask if a lunchtime peel is painful, and the answer is no. All you will feel is a sensation of vacuum suction and the tiny crystal particles making contact with your skin. Treatments are customized to maintain individual comfort levels.

The number of treatments you opt for will depend on the condition of your skin. Generally, people with acne scars require the greatest number of treatments.
