Throughout the day, your skin is exposed to environmental factors, such as UV rays and pollution. Over time, these factors can take a toll on our skin, causing our complexion to look dull and aged. Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure that can help to refresh and rejuvenate the skin for a radiant glow.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure done to rejuvenate your complexion. The treatment uses a spray of microcrystals to eliminate the outermost layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresh, younger skin underneath. This process also stimulates the production of collagen under the skin for an overall improvement in skin appearance.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Patients who wish to eliminate mild sun damage, blackheads, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, scars, acne, and even rosacea can often benefit from microdermabrasion. Those who wish to forego more invasive procedures often choose this treatment. Microdermabrasion can treat patients with all skin types and tones.

Those with more advanced signs of aging, such as deep scars and facial lines can often benefit from stronger treatment options. A consultation at FacesFirst can help to discover which treatment option is best for your individual case.

Great experience at Faces First! Nadia was super nice and you can tell she keeps up with the latest trends in skincare and is constantly updating her techniques. Had a lovely hydrofacial, light treatment and peel and left feeling glowy and taken care of. Will definitely be back to see her.
