Microdermabrasion for Wrinkles and Acne
Microdermabrasion rejuvenates and revitalizes skin. Microdermabrasion uses a fine jet of crystals to gently and painlessly exfoliate your skin while vacuum suction removes the crystals with the dead skin cells, leaving you with new, softer skin and even skin texture.
Microdermabrasion also promotes the production of new cells in the deepest layer of the dermis, cleans pores and stimulates collagen to improve skin texture.
Microdermabrasion can be used on the light or dark skin to treat face, neck, chest, elbows, arms, knees and hands.
Microdermabrasion is suited for:
– Fine lines and wrinkles
– Age spots, sun damage and hyperpigmentation
– Acne scars, chickenpox scars and stretch marks
– Congested skin, enlarged pores and blemishes
– Dull skin
