Microdermabrasion is a gentle approach to renew your skin cells to revive your skin back to its original glow right away. You will find your skin will feel smoother and fine lines will be removed in addition pores and acne will fade.

How does it work?

A hand piece is used on your skin that will help exfoliate and suction away dead skin cells. No chemicals are used in this process and those skin cells that are healthy are left.

Right away, there is no recovery time and all normal activities can be resumed immediately.

What results can I expect?

While results may vary from patient to patient, your skin will glow and feel softer. Age spots, scars, fine lines or other superficial blemishes can be reduced or even be removed.

Before the treatment, will I need to prepare?

Please stop use of retinol products for about 5 days before treatment. Also avoid tanning, waxing and collagen fillers for about 2 weeks prior to treatment.
