What is micro-dermabrasion?
Micro-dermabrasion is a progressive, non-invasive treatment that propels natural mineral crystals onto the surface of the skin for gentle epidermal abrasion that reveals newer, healthier, younger looking skin. Micro Controlled Peeling gently removes epidermal cells to treat a wide range of skin imperfections. It is especially effective in treating aging skin. The powerful peeling action triggers the skin’s repair mechanisms to produce healthy epidermal growth, improving skin tone and elasticity.
How does the treatment work?
Micro-dermabrasion works in two ways:
The speed of the crystal flow causes an abrasive action that gently removes the surface layers of the skin, allowing smoother, fresher skin to emerge.
The vacuum action helps to stimulate microcirculation, increasing the blood supply that provides nutrients needed for skin regeneration. It also stimulates formation of new collagen and elastin to improve skin texture and elasticity.
Is it painful?
The treatment is performed with little discomfort. At the most, sensitive patients might experience a slight sensation resembling a light sunburn. After treatment, the skin has a pink glow, and you can resume your normal activities almost immediately. The procedure can be done during lunch hour.
What skin problems can be treated?
This system gradually abrades epidermal cells to treat a vast range of skin problems:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Uneven and granular skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Blackheads and comedones
- Superficial scars
- Some stretch marks
Is it safe?
Micro Controlled Peeling offers a gentler alternative to more traumatic resurfacing treatments. It does not involve trauma or bleeding. The treatment is executed safely and progressively, removing only superficial layers of the epidermis to reveal a more youthful complexion and glow. Your therapist has total control and works under the strictest hygiene standards, using sterile, disposable treatment nozzles to ensure the highest safety.
How long does it take?
Each treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes. When combined with other anti-aging treatments, it takes 45 minutes to 1 hour.
How many treatments will I need?
Age and skin condition determine the number of treatments required to achieve optimum results. For most skin disorders, a minimum of six treatments is recommended. Results can be seen in both the texture and the appearance of the skin after just one session. An initial series of treatments, combined with maintenance sessions, will result in better skin quality and may postpone the first lifting treatment for some years.
Can Micro Controlled Peeling be used on the body?
There are virtually no areas of the body that would not benefit from microdermabrasion. When used in the exfoliation mode, it can be performed on the face, neck, and neckline, with a second sweep on any areas of hyper pigmentation or with texture irregularities.

IPL PhotoFacial/Skin Rejuvenation
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is the latest in technology for skin rejuvenation to help keep a younger and fresher look by removing age spots and diffuse redness, and by improving your skin texture. IPL uses short, safe bursts of light emitted from a flash-lamp to treat specific skin conditions.
As skin rejuvenation is based on light absorption by melanin and hemoglobin, treatments are most effective in patients with light skin who are not sun-tanned at the time of the treatments. The lighter the skin, the more pronounced the contrast between the age spots or blood vessels and the skin, making treatment easier.
A series of three treatments is recommended; however, single treatments are also available. Treatments are scheduled 4 weeks apart.
The beauty of a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is that it's a simple, 10-minute, non-surgical process. Just a few tiny injections, and within days there can be a noticeable improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between the brows that can last up to 4 months. Resuslts may vary. And there's no recovery time. You can even do it on your lunch break.
- Your doctor will administer several tiny injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic directly into the muscles that cause those moderate to severe from lines between the brows.
- Your doctor will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create a furrowed brow vary markedly among individuals.
- No anesthesia is required, although your doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
- You can expect to be in and out of the physician's office without downtime. You may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows within days. Improvement may continue for as long as a month, and could last up to 4 months.
