In 2009, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported there were 910,168 microdermabrasion procedures done in the US alone (176,541 of those men). As a non-surgical method of skin rejuvenation, microder

mabrasion is quick, convenient and painless, immediately restoring younger, smoother looking skin without the need for chemicals, lasers or Botox. Microdermabrasion can also be used as a preventative measure for aging skin and the appearance of fine line and wrinkles. "Prevention is key!". The huge number of benefits is what makes microdermabrasion such a popular treatment. Microdermabrasion can be used on all skin types, even sensitive skin. Many people choose microdermabrasion over chemical peels and laser treatment because it is generally safer and more cost-effective.

What is Microdermabrasion? Microdermabrasion treatment uses a diamond head device or a stream of non-allergenic crystals to remove your skin’s outermost layers of dead cells. Your therapist will use the handset to direct the device over the treatment area and targeting specific zones. The handset uses mild suction to draw away dead skin debris and reveals your new and improved complexion.

The skin’s appearance is further improved through increased collagen & elastin production as your body produces a new layer of skin.

A series of 6–10 treatments is usually recommended for optimum results, taking 2 weeks in between for skin to recover. The entire procedure usually takes about 30 minutes for the face, longer if you want your neck and other body parts such as hands and feet done.
