A safe and non-invasive mechanical exfoliation of the skin to RENEW, REPAIR and IMPROVE the skin’s overall health and appearance. With the use of medical grade tiny crystals, this treatment will remove 30% - 35% of debris on the top layer of the skin (stratum corneum) which consists of dead skin cells, excess oil, pollution, make-up residue and build of keratinized cells that all contribute to clogging and aging of the skin. As we age, the skin's cellular turn-over process slows down. The accumulation of the dead surface cells needs a bit of help to exfoliate on a regular basis. Microdermabrasion does exactly that...exfoliates. It also focuses on refining the pores, softens fine lines and wrinkles and give an overall immediate glow to the skin. By lifting the debris, the skin is able to optimize blood circulation and stimulate new living cells which in turn, stimulate collagen and elastin production. You will see and feel immediate results after 1 treatment. A very effective anti-aging facial to REJUVENATE the skin, creating a healthier barrier and give it a youthful GLOW!
Microdermabrasion is typically done on a monthly basis for good health or seasonally for anti-aging, however for corrective measures we recommend a series of 4-6 treatments spaced 10-14 days apart. More severe problems may require more visits (6 - 12 treatments). We suggest that your skin condition be evaluated after the initial series to determine the need for additional visits. Depending on the condition and age of skin, monthly treatments are beneficial thereafter to maintain results achieved along with prescribed Home Care. Further anti-aging can be achieved by combining KINELIFT for tightening and toning.

The particles of crystal used are extremely fine and only interact with surface tissue.
WHAT WILL MY SKIN FEEL LIKE AFTER THE TREATMENT?
The skin will feel light, vibrant and healthy and you will notice an immediate difference in the way the skin feels because it will be softer and smoother. The Microdermabrasion treatment has the effect of blending or removing fine lines and pigmentation caused by overexposure to the sun. You may see a glow on the cheeks, but this will normally disappear after a couple of hours. The client can, of course, return to work immediately and apply makeup as required.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT LAST?

With pre and post treatment, allow about an hour for a session involving the face and neck. The client should plan if possible, eliminating or minimizing makeup on the day of your visit.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DOES THE CLIENT NEED?
A normal course of Microdermabrasion treatments varies between 4-6 at two week intervals. After the initial course of treatments, an additional treatment every couple of months is recommended to maintain the skin in excellent condition. Age 50+ should invest in a once a month maintenance treatments.
HOW IS MICRODERMABRASION DIFFERENT TO A GLOW PEEL?
The Glow Peel uses medical grades ingredients such as acids and enzymes to exfoliate dead skin cells and promote cell turn-over. It penetrates the superficial layer (stratum corneum) of the skin and reaches the live cells to stimulates cellular renewal. The Microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliant which can be customized on certain areas that need more textural smoothing. Both offer anti-aging, exfoliation, oxigination, cellular debris removal and a healthy glow.
