Does microderm hurt?
No. The process for microdermabrasion is much like a facial. Your skin will be gently cleansed prior to the treatment. Many people describe the feeling like being “licked by a cat”. It is slightly rough and gently tugs, but very comfortable. Post treatment, a moisturizer and sun screen will be applied.
How many treatments do I need?
That depends on what your goals are. For all our clients, we recommend that you consider a series of treatments that includes microderms, peels, and more aggressive laser treatments. If you just want a quick pick-me-up, a single treatment is fine, but if you want to tighten pores, soften fine lines, smooth rough texture or lighten discoloration, then our Skin Care Membership Program is the ideal solution.
What can I expect after a treatment?
Results after a treatment vary depending on your skin sensitivity, the amount of pressure applied and how many treatments you have had prior to application. Generally speaking, you should expect mild redness for 1-3 days post treatment.
Everybody can benefit from a great skin care regiment, no matter what age. Taking good care of your skin helps slow down the visible signs of aging and keeps you looking healthy and radiant. All skin care programs should include two components; regular spa treatments and great at-home skin care products.
Facials and microdermabrasion are an important piece of any in-spa treatment program. Facials play a vital part in keeping your skin young and healthy. Our medical grade facials are designed to help you relax as well as address your skin care concerns. Facials are a great way to achieve a deep cleanse for your skin.
Regular exfoliation is also critical for proper skin care and microderm is a great solution. Microdermabrasion is what’s called a physical exfoliation. This means that the treatment targets the surface cells on your face, neck, arms or back. Microderm can also be combined, in the same treatment, with chemical peels, in order to achieve a much deeper exfoliation.
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a physical exfoliation. Using a microderm machine, finely ground aluminum crystals are gently sprayed at the skin and vacuumed away. This process loosens and removes the surface dead skin cells. Microderm is a great complimentary treatment to more aggressive procedures such as peels or laser resurfacing.
