WHAT TO EXPECT FROM MICRODERMABRASION
After your first session at our Precision Skin Clinic, your skin will have a fresh pink glow and a smoother feel. With continued treatments, you will notice a significant reduction in the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, age spots, enlarged pores, and uneven pigmentation. Before long, your skin will look softer, smoother, firmer and younger.
HOW DOES MICRODERMABRASION WORK?
Crystals are directed at the skin and usually removed by a vacuum process. It is quite similar to sandblasting. The treatment is gradual and progressive with each session. It is often combined with collagen stimulating products and skin peels.
The best part of your treatment at Precision Skin is that it is painless and has no “downtime” which means that you can have the treatment in your lunch hour and return to work in the afternoon.
What does treatment involve?
Each microdermabrasion facial treatment typically lasts 20 to 30 minutes. If your treatment includes the neck and upper chest area, it may last up to an hour. A typical course of microdermabrasion treatment will vary between 4 to 8 treatments at approximately 2-week intervals. Most patients feel and see a difference just after one or two treatments. Further improvement can be expected by scheduling additional treatments.
The procedure is performed by passing a handheld device that uses a highly controlled flow of fine, medical grade crystals over the skin. This skin exfoliating process removes the dead, outermost layer of skin, revealing new living skin cells while also stimulating and promoting the production of new collagen
