The epidermis, the uppermost layer of skin, acts as a protective barrier between the dermal layer and environmental elements. The skin constantly regenerates itself – in 28-day cycles in fact – and this herculean process leaves a layer of dead cells on the surface, making the skin look dull.
Microdermabrasion is the physical exfoliation of this uppermost layer of skin. It involves the application of tiny rough grains from a diamond-shaped steel nozzle to buff away the surface layer of skin and reveal the fresh, younger looking skin lying below.
A minimally invasive process, this gentle sanding helps maintain clear, healthy skin. It also supports the treatment of acne by refining open pores, clearing blackheads and lightening acne scars.
By boosting your skin’s ability to absorb the goodness of your skin care regimen, Microdermabrasion extends the benefits of treatments designed to give you glowing, radiant skin.
