Microdermabrasion, also known as Microderm, is a safe and non-invasive procedure that stimulates healthy skin cells bysloughing off dry skin cells. Microdermabrasion softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarse skin, decreases the appearance of superficial scarring and superficial hyper-pigmentation. It gives results you can’t achieve with a home microdermabrasion kit, which is typically a scrub for the face that is often too abrasive and can even irritate the skin. Our machine is crystal-free, leaving no messy residue and instead uses gentle exfoliation for refreshed, glowing and smooth skin. Our Microderm service does include steam and extractions to deep clean the pores as well. This treatment is best paired with a Facial or Chemical Peel but also works great as a stand-alone service.
All skin types benefit from this treatment however, if you are prone to broken capillaries (small red facial veins) than Dermaplaning would be a better alternative. Its small vacuum suction can make currently broken capillaries worse. Exfoliation is an important part of a skincare routine and professional exfoliation treatments like Microdermabrasion can really make a difference.
No, Microderm is a non-invasive treatment that allows a deeper exfoliation without any downtime. Clients may have some redness, but it typically subsides by the time the service is finished. Makeup can be worn and normal activities can resume following a Microdermabrasion treatment. Daily sunscreen, of at least 30SPF, should be worn after the treatment and as apart of your daily routine.
