Medical Microdermabrasion - The next generation microdermabrasion!
Say ‘so long’ to dirt, oil and dead skin and hello to visibly soft, smooth skin. Medical microdermabrasion at Cosmetic Laser Center is a step up from the older generation microdermabrasion and is the ultimate in exfoliation, gently clearing clogged pores and eliminating dead skin cells to rejuvenate your complexion. Give dull, tired skin the cold shoulder and open your arms to a happier, healthy face. Medical microdermabrasion treatments are the key to younger looking skin, virtually polishing away effects of the sun and the signs of aging, not to mention fighting fine lines and acne.
How does a Medical Microdermabrasion work?
Medical microdermabrasion is the process of resurfacing the top layer of the skin to a precise depth by the combination of an exfoliation and vacuum process. By removing dead skin cells and stimulating blood flow, the deeper dermal level is stimulated to produce collagen giving the skin a more supple, elastic appearance. The result is fresher, healthier, rejuvenated skin with enhanced surface quality. By delicately removing the outer skin layer, it brings out the beautiful, brand new you underneath to leave you looking radiant. Perfect for not only the face, it works wonders on the neck and upper chest too.
What can I expect during my Medical Microdermabrasion treatment?
- Before starting treatment, our licensed skincare professional will examine your face and discuss your goals to determine if Medical Microdermabrasion is right for you.
- During your treatment, you’ll be seated in a reclining chair. A diamond-tip hand-piece is used to gently exfoliate dead cells in your skin. At the same time, it will suction them off immediately.
- The depth of the abrasion may be affected by the pressure applied on the hand-piece as well as how long the suction is allowed to remain on the skin.
- It’s not necessary to use anesthesia or a numbing agent for microdermabrasion.
- At the end of the treatment, a moisturizer as well as sunscreen will be applied to your skin.
- Not all microdermabrasion treatments are the same. When you visit Cosmetic Laser Center, you are always in the care of properly licensed & certified professionals. A good microdermabrasion treatment of the face should last a minimum of 30 minutes. If it's the face and neck, it should last up to 45 minutes. A quick "once over lightly" will not give you the results that this treatment can deliver.
