Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular new methods for rejuvenating and revitalizing your skin in just an afternoon! It uses a jet of fine crystals to smooth skin by gently exfoliating the outside layers of the skin allowing smoother, fresher skin to appear. As well, a vacuuming action helps to stimulate microdermabrasion circulation and lymphatic flow, increasing the nutrient-rich blood supply that skin needs to efficiently regenerate. This helps accelerate the skin's own repair process while stimulating the formation of new collagen and elastin, thereby improving skin texture and elasticity. The procedure is virtually pain-free.
