You may find yourself wondering, what exactly is a microdermabrasion treatment? Microdermabrasion is a skin care procedure that is non-invasive and minimally abrasive. This procedure stimulates the production of collagen as well as exfoliates dead and dry skin. The result is beautiful, youthful, and glowing skin.

  • Microdiamond: Microdermabrasion treatment followed by a diamond mask.

Skincare Benefits

Microdermabrasion provides many skincare benefits for a variety of skin types. This treatment can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and lighten age spots for a youthful effect. It can also benefit those with oily skin by improving the overall condition of the skin and eliminating or reducing the appearance of large pores. Microdermabrasion can even reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Microdermabrasion provides the most noticeable changes and improvements to the skin when you incorporate it as a regular part of your skincare maintenance routine.


One of the many benefits of microdermabrasion is that there is virtually no downtime or recovery time needed. For the best results, you will need to take special care with using moisturizer and sunscreen after the treatment since it exfoliates the skin. However, you will not need to hide away until your skin heals like some other treatments. Microdermabrasion is safe for most skin types and you will be able to go about your day as usual after this treatment.
