What Is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a facial procedure that uses manual exfoliation to remove the outer layer of skin. This process works in a series of treatments to achieve the best results.

How does a microdermabrasion treatment work on the skin?
The exfoliating effect of microdermabrasion will increase cell turnover creating collagen and fibroblasts. This will give the dermal layer more spring.
What results can I expect?
You will notice an improvement in your skin’s appearance after your treatment. Stretch marks and acne scars will be less obvious. Age spots and fine lines are reduced, and many Microdermabrasion clients report that their skin seems softer, tighter, smoother and younger looking.
What is the difference between Crystal Microdermabrasion and Diamond Microdermabrasion?
The regular crystal microdermabrasion technology involves the use of a special, hand-held device that propels a high-speed flow of aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin. At the same time, the machine’s vacuum system sucks away dirt, dead cells and used crystals.
The diamond tip hand piece, replaces the micro-crystal flow with a laser cut diamond tip wand. Other than that, crystal-free diamond head microdermabration works in the same way traditional microabrasion does. The wand tip is made of natural laser cut diamond chips which polish the skin and remove dead cells, which are then vacuumed back into a waste filter.
