What is microdermabrasion?
A microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin treatment that exfoliates and removes the dead, dull, outermost layer of skin. Often referred to as a micro or Microderm, this gentle and invigorating treatment leaves your skin clean, clear, bright and purified.
Are microdermabrasions the same as a regular facial?
Microdermabrasions are different from a regular facial, as they use active skincare products and advanced technology to exfoliate the dull, dead, outer surface of the skin, leaving it clear, bright and purified. Most notably, microdermabrasion treatments feature the use of diamond-tipped machines and vacuum suction to extract debris from your pores and collect dead skin.
Does microdermabrasion hurt?
Microdermabrasions are a non-invasive treatment that targets the outermost layers of the skin. The diamond-tipped suction machine feels like tiny sand-like particles running across your face; a strange sensation for first-timers but by no means painful.
