TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR SKIN…and…KEEP FIT!!!
Microdermabrasion is a manual exfoliation technique that utilizes crystals or Diamond tip to remove dead and damaged cells from the surface of the skin. This allows fresher, younger, and healthier skin to shine through, renewing your complexion and improving the appearance of any discoloration, scarring, or fine lines. Microdermabrasion treatments can also help to treat or reduce the effects of acne, age spots, and enlarged pores. This technique is simple, effective and comfortable with fast results. Microdermabrasion is usually performed in a series of 4 to 12 treatments spaced a week or two apart.
In diamond tipped devices the coarseness of the grit and speed of rotation determine the aggressiveness of the treatment. Deep wrinkles and scars require additional treatments such as lasers or chemical peels.
Prior to microdermabrasion, the area to be treated is gently cleaned. For crystal-based microdermabrasion, a high pressure stream of crystals is forced over the skin and then cleared with a vacuum that also whisks away exfoliated skin.
One or two passes are typically performed. After the microdermabrasion treatment, excess crystals are wiped off and moisturizer and sunscreen applied. The skin will be red for a few hours.

Microdermabrasion results are both immediate and long term. It literally unveils newer, healthier skin. However
, not everyone is a candidate for microdermabrasion treatments. If you have active or open acne lesions (such as pustules), it is best advised for you to wait until these lesions heal. If you have rosacea and your skin is inflamed, you are currently not a candidate. If you’re pregnant and have what is is referred to as pregnancy mask (hyperpigmentation), it is best that you wait to have microdermabrasion treatments at least six months after you give birth. If you have Herpes Simplex I and II, microdermabrasion can cause an outbreak of this pre-existing condition. For HIV and AIDS patients, this treatments in contraindicated, because the skin is thinned, and can cause lesions due to a compromised immune system. Lastly, if you have diabetes, you are also not a good candidate, because the skin of individuals with diabetes is extremely compromised by the many medications they must take. Individuals with tattoos, take caution, as microdermabrasion treatments may lighten the pigment (color) of your tattoo.
