What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions. The procedure uses a special applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it.*

How Does It Work?

Microdermabrasion is an in-office procedure that usually takes about one hour. It’s not necessary to use anesthesia or a numbing agent for microdermabrasion. During your appointment, you’ll be seated in a reclining chair. Your provider will use a handheld device to gently spray on the particles or sand away the outer layer of skin in the targeted areas. At the end of the treatment, a moisturizer will be applied to your skin.*

How Much Does It Cost?

One treatment costs $125. It is suggested to get 2 – 4 treatments per year.
