Age, sun, diet and the environment are a few factors that lead to skin deterioration on the face and other parts of the body. With Dermaglow® Microdermabrasion particle skin exfoliation technology, there is a safe and gentle way to help rejuvenate, smooth and repair your skin. This form of Microdermabrasion has been adopted as the treatment of choice in the United States, making it the most requested non-surgical procedure.
The Dermaglow® Microdermabrasion procedure has been shown to be safe and effective for the cosmetic reduction of: fine lines and wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, acne scars, excess oils, blackheads, whiteheads, pore size and superficial age spots.
Microdermabrasion skin exfoliation treatment is ideal for both men and women seeking to turn back the effects of time and desiring healthy, younger-looking skin. This treatment is for people who are unwilling or unable to undergo existing laser or chemical treatments, due to the high cost, potential side effects, discomfort and long recovery period.
DERMAGLOW delivers a controlled stream of microcrystals over the skin through a special hand piece. By gently polishing the skin and removing dead skin cells, oils and other buildup, it is possible to improve many skin conditions and the imperfections that lead to premature aging.
Most people see dramatic results after one DERMAGLOW® Microdermabrasion treatment. However, for optimal results, we may recommend a series for your specific needs that will include a designated number of treatments and the specific time intervals between each treatment.
The DERMAGLOW treatment takes 10-25 minutes depending upon the areas being treated.
