Microdermabrasion

What is Microdermabrasion?

The technology of modern microdermabrasion is a well-established treatment and has been used in practice for over 20 years. Microdermabrasion uses a highly controlled flow of fine, medical grade crystals to remove the dead outer most layer of skin. This skin exfoliation process reveals the new, living skin cells that are soft and smooth.

What does it treat?

Acne, comedones, congested skin, sun damaged skin, superficial age spots, pigmentation, brown marks, blocked, dry flaking skin and fine lines and wrinkles

How many treatments are required?

Depending on your skin condition, treatments vary from a single treatment to a course of treatments, Dr. Coleman or her nurse will go through this with you on your first visit.
