Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, comprehensive approach to skin care. There is no down time or a long healing process. Our unique approach removes dead skin cells and stimulates the production of fresh young skin cells and collagen. Micro aluminum hydroxide crystals are vacuumed across your skin through a delicate hand piece held by your technician. As the micro crystals pass over the skin, they virtually erase the imperfections and the effects of sun-damage.
