We offer the NaturaBrador Microdermabrasion System. It is designed as an exfoliating device for skin treatment. It uses abrasive particles to exfoliate the epidermis. Microdermabrasion provides skin with a healthy, youthful glow and is also helpful in smoothing out scars and fine wrinkles. Some of the newest research in microdermabrasion also suggest that it thickens the dermal layer of skin, which in turn tightens and firms the areas treated. An initial series of six treatments at one-week intervals is recommended with some type of maintenance schedule thereafter.
What is the treatment?
Microdermabrasion is a safe, common, non-surgical procedure. The procedure involves mechanical abrasion from jets of zinc oxide or aluminum oxide crystals, fine organic particles, or a roughened surface. Particles are removed off through the wand/handpiece through which the abrasive particles come. The best analogy I can think of is sandblasting on a micro-scale.
What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?
Whether you’re fighting fine lines, dealing with age spots, or want an effective way to minimize discoloration or other superficial skin blemishes, this multitasking, skin-saving treatment has you covered. Microdermabrasion can also be helpful with oily and enlarged pores, blackheads, acne and even some acne scarring.
How much does microdermabrasion cost?
Microdermabrasion treatments cost $100. We also have packages of 6 treatments for $500.
What will I look like after a treatment?
After a microdermabrasion treatment, the skin will be red for several hours. Patients are able to wash and reapply makeup if necessary. This makes microdermabrasion a procedure with virtually no downtime.
