Microdermabrasion at THE SPA at Laser + Skin Institute
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that reinvigorates the skin by manually removing dead skin cells with a gently abrasive wand-like instrument, combined with a suctioning action.
Our diamond tip microdermabrasion machine uses gentle abrasion and suction to collect the outermost layer of the skin known as the stratum corneum. This process leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and revitalized. Immediately following the procedure, a soothing mask, moisturizer, and sun block are applied to re-hydrate and protect your skin.
Microdermabrasion is safe and painless, and can be repeated often to maintain the supurb exfoliation you will experience from a single treatment.

What results can I expect from Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion accelerates the cellular turnover process, bringing you closer to healthier, younger-looking skin. It allows you to gradually resurface your skin without the risks, side effects, and down time of more aggressive alternatives. In as little as 20 minutes, this gentle, abrasive technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Improvements in appearance and texture will occur with successive treatments. Microdermabrasion can be used aggressively to achieve dramatic results, but does not take the place of surgical or laser treatments.
How many Microdermabrasion treatments will I need?
To achieve maximum results, several treatments are recommended, typically scheduled 1 to 3 weeks apart. You will experience a progressive improvement throughout your treatment program. Ask to schedule a consultation to determine the approximate number of treatments recommended for optimum effects.
How will my skin look immediately after Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion leaves your skin feeling soft and you will notice a healthy glow to your complexion. Due to the increase of circulation, a mild temporary blush surrounding the treated area may be the only evidence of your therapy.
