Microdermabrasion & Peels

To keep our skin it's healthiest, it's best to get periodic, deep cleanings.  This involves removing the outer dead layers of skin to reveal the fresher, living skin below.  This is known as exfoliation.  We offer many ways to exfoliate the skin...two of which are microdermabrasion and peels. Both are good treatments for acne prone individuals, those who desire a deep cleaning for healthy skin, and as well as those desiring an immediate glow.

Microdermabrasion (MDA) is a form of mechanical exfoliation in which a hand-held wand is employed to apply a stream of inert crystals at high velocity to the surface of the skin.  Simultaneously, a powerful vacuum removes both the crystals and exfoliated skin, allowing for nuanced control of the depth of peeling.  

Although some people's skin gets great results from microdermabrasion, other people's skin responds better to chemical peels. We offer peels of many different strengths, including minimally-invasive ones that leave the skin immediately fresher-looking.
