What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical exfoliating procedure that revitalizes the skin's appearance and smoothness. It is more commonly known as the lunchtime peel, as one session generally takes only 30 minutes and no recuperation time afterward.
How does it work?
A stream of very fine crystals is directed onto the skin to loosen the dead layer of skin on the surface. It then suctions away the dead skin to reveal fresh, smooth skin.
Are there any side effects?
Temporary redness and slight discomfort may be experienced.
