Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses a mechanical device to gently remove the outer layer of dead skin cells from the face, chest, or hands. It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, acne scars, and other blemishes. This procedure is usually performed in a variety of treatments and is considered safe and effective with minimal side effects.
Microdermabrasion Techniques and Procedures: Microdermabrasion uses a hand-held device to spray fine crystals, such as aluminum oxide or sodium chloride, onto the skin. These crystals gently remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells. The device also has a suction unit to suck up crystals and dead skin cells.

There are two main types of microdermabrasion techniques: Super Crystal Skin Abrasive and Diamond Scalp Super Abrasive. In crystal microdermabrasion, a machine presses micro-crystals into the skin, while in diamond scalp microdermabrasion. A wand with a diamond tip is used to scrape the skin.
Diamond Head microdermabrasion is considered to be more precise and less complicated than crystal microdermabrasion.
This procedure usually takes 30 to 60 minutes and can be done on an outpatient basis. Your skin may be red and tender after the treatment, but this usually goes away within a few hours. A variety of treatments are recommended for the best results.

It took a second for me to get my appointment but the hassle was worth the wait. Blanca is kind and went above and beyond. She gave me the oxygen infusion and LED light. I have pretty night skin but this facial made it shine. I feel like I could never use makeup again! My face is clean and my pores are actually nice to look at. Oh! And it is extremely hydrated. I will be coming back.
