Originally developed in Italy, the process of microdermabrasion has won worldwide acclaim as an effective non-surgical technique to rejuvenate the skin, and to treat skin ailments.
Microdermabrasion has been widely used in Europe for the past 20 years, and in the USA since 1996 when this revolutionary technique gained FDA approval.
Microdermabrasion removes the outer top layers of the epidermis, allowing the smooth, fresh new skin to emerge from underneath.
Our skin looks healthy and radiant when skin cells renew and the old dead cells peel off naturally. However, this natural cell renewal process is easily disrupted by stress, age, hormonal changes, pollution and sunlight, thereby causing various skin problems to occur. These skin problems affect: skin texture, firmness, skin tone and pore condition and lead to ailments such as wrinkles, pigmentation changes, break-outs and other skin issues.
Research microdermabrasion on the internet and you will read that microdermabrasion can strengthen the skin, it stimulates collagen and elastin growth in the deeper layers, and over time enables your skin to reduce existing sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, shrink pores and more.
