Microdermabrasion is a procedure which gently resurfaces the skin. This exfoliation is performed with medical grade, diamond tip applicators which are passed across the skin’s surface removing dead and damaged cells at the skin’s surface. By eliminating these surface cells, the skin is left soft and supple while forcing the regeneration of new skin cells.
Chemical peels will achieve results using glycolic acid, lactic acid (AHA’s) or other mild acids of varying strengths to peel off the stratum corneum, where as a microdermabrasion will do this physically. It is also a very effective way to improve texture, tone, acne breakouts or age spots. Peels are known to leave you with a healthy glow and the softest skin.
