Microdermabrasion is a highly effective lunch hour power treatment ranked one of the top esthetic procedures performed in the United States. This non-chemical, non-invasive treatment offers the most benefits for the least amount of time, with no side effects and no negative downtime (when administered correctly by a qualified professional).

A solo 'face polishing' treatment will greatly improve the skin's texture and produce a smoother and more youthful complexion with a healthy, radiating glow. A series of treatments will gradually restore and refine the layers of the skin and trigger a reported 30% improvement in the skin's elasticity by stimulating the skin's natural bank of collagen. Firmness. Less wrinkles. Immediately following the treatment there may be a slight wind-burned feeling and redness, which will fade within a day. The expected results are noticeable improvements in tone and texture, pore refinement, and a reduction in fine lines.

Post treatment care consists of a steady regimen of moisturizing and sunscreen application. Microdermabrasion is also a great skin rejuvenating alternative for those who are sensitive to Retin-A or AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) based creams that may be too aggressive on certain skin types. This is not a recommended procedure for those who have eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, or cases of inflamed acne. Overall, this is one of the 'good fellas' in the skin care treatment world.

$100- $150 per treatment - Highly Recommended
