Medical Dermabrasion

If you are unhappy with age spots, acne scars, stretch marks, fine wrinkles or flaking skin, you might want to consider Medical Dermabrasion. Used in Europe for years, now this exciting procedure is the number two non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States. It is helping men and women everywhere experience remarkable improvements in skin texture regardless of skin color.

Medical Dermabrasion is a medical cosmetic procedure popular in doctors' practices, and medical spas, in which the stratum corneum (dead outermost surface of the skin) is partially or completely removed by light abrasion. Combined with our skin care products, it is a safe, comprehensive approach to skin care. Different methods include mechanical abrasion from jets of zinc oxide or aluminum oxide crystals, fine organic particles, or a roughened surface. Particles and removed material is vacuumed off through the wand/hand piece through which the abrasive particles come. This procedure is designed to remove sun-damaged skin and to remove or lessen scars and dark spots on the skin. Medical Dermabrasion can be used medically for scar removal when the scar is raised above the surrounding skin, but is less effective with sunken scars. This procedure is also effective for the treatment of acne, but must be repeated periodically and performed in conjunction with blue light therapy in order to be effective. Dermabrasion should not be used on patients who have taken the medication Accutane (Isotretinion) in the previous six months.

Medical Dermabrasion Treatment utilizes Diamond or Pure Hungarian Aluminum Oxide Crystals. Medical Dermabrasion treatments are available treatments in conjunction with: O2, Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid or Vitamin infusion and Blue or Red Light therapy

Maintaining the results of the Dermabrasion treatment

Maintaining healthy looking skin is a daily task. Always wear SPF of at least 15 to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays. Keep your skin moist and fresh with daily cleansing and moisturizing using specially formulated skin care products. Ask your skin care specialist about recommendations for your skin care products.
