The skin is the largest organ of our body. It protects us from the environment and regulates our body temperature. Skin is made up of millions of cells. Each day thousands of these cells die, fall off, and are replaced by new cells from beneath the outer layer of skin. However, as we age, this process begins to slow down. Dark blotches and other signs of aging and sun damage begin to appear.
Microdermabrasion has been used in Europe for years and it is like a "superficial skin polishing" using micro-crystals vacuumed through a delicate hand piece. The procedure only removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells to reveal the fresher, younger cells beneath. Regardless of your skin's condition, fine lines and age spots may be erased and acne scars and stretch marks will become less obvious. Microdermabrasion leaves your skin softer, smoother and fresher looking. It is helping men and women everywhere experience remarkable improvements in skin texture regardless of skin color.
The best candidates for Microdermabrasion are those patients that:
Are younger and whose skin is showing early signs of aging.
Have acne-prone skin that has not responded well to other acne remedies.
Exhibit skin sensitivities to chemicals or make-up.
Don't want to put off their outdoor activities like golf, tennis or skiing.
Cannot afford to take time off for healing from a chemical peel or laser procedure.
With Microdermabrasion, you can have a treatment and return to work immediately. Most patients find Microdermabrasion treatments to be quite relaxing. In thirty minutes, this gentle, abrasive technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Following the treatment, specially formulated creams may be applied to further soften and moisturize the skin. Treatments are applied through a course of weekly or bi-weekly sessions, ranging from 2 to 12 weeks. After your first treatment your skin will have a fresh pink glow. It will look healthier and feel smoother and softer. Your improvement will continue throughout your treatment program.
Maintaining healthy looking skin is a daily task. Always wear SPF of at least 15 to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays. Keep your skin moist and fresh with daily cleansing and moisturizing using specially formulated skin care products.
