Getting beautiful, healthy skin is an attainable goal, especially with today’s technology. Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective forms of non-invasive treatments for skin imperfections. From acne and acne scarring treatments to hyper-pigmentation and textural changes, microdermabrasion is the safe and effective treatment that can give you the better looking skin you’ve always wanted.


As a type of mechanical exfoliation, microderm works to an extent that you can’t get with other products, such as scrubs. There are two types of microderm: crystal and diamond-tip microdermabrasion. Both work in the same way—acting as an exfoliating agent that removes the uppermost layer of dead skins cells from your body.

This technology is especially useful in the treatment of many common facial skin imperfections and is generally pain-free. Depending on the type of microderm treatment you receive, traditional crystal microderm works by using a wand that both sprays and vacuums the exfoliating agents/crystals onto your skin. This creates a type of “peel” of dead skin cells, leaving your skin cleaner, healthier, and more beautiful looking.

Other Major Benefits

In addition to be highly effective, there are also many other benefits to microdermabrasion. The technology allows you to receive these treatments in a short amount of time, generally 30 minutes, and are non-invasive—meaning you can continue with your day’s routine with little or no after-effects. This is where the term “lunchtime peel” comes from.

If you have sensitive skin, you can still receive microderm treatments. Because the machine’s settings can be adjusted for your specific skin needs, your esthetician can ensure you’re receiving the best treatment, even if you have sensitive skin.

Because this treatment is effective, yet still gentle for your skin, you can undergo several treatments generally once every two weeks, depending on your needs. These treatments ensure you’re receiving the best results possible while still caring for your skin.

When it comes to restoring your skin to its most pure and beautiful, the deep exfoliating of microdermabrasion treatment may be just what you need. Be sure you consult the experts of a medical spa before deciding on a treatment regimen. When you’re ready to have one of the most restorative facial treatments, microdermabrasion is just what you’re looking for.
