Microdermabrasion is a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment invented in Italy for skin rejuvenation. Multiple articles in dermatologic medical journals have proven that microdermabrasion improves acne scars, wrinkles and acne by exfoliating the outer dead layers of the skin and stimulating new collagen formation in the deeper dermal layers, revealing younger, fresher skin.
This procedure utilizes crystals to finely resurface superficial layers of the skin. Microdermabrasion can even treat stubborn acne scars of the back. During your consultation, you may request a sample of the treatment on the back or your hand to sample its benefits and painlessness.

How Does it Work?
Patients relax lying down. A fine mist of crystals are sprayed onto the skin’s surface and gently suctioned away. The dual action of mechanical exfoliation combined with dynamic stimulatory effects of the vacuum-suction result in new collagen production and skin rejuvenation.
