This is a quick and easy, non-surgical mini-procedure for rejuvenating your skin, lessening the signs of scarring, and removing fine lines and the effects of acne.
With the use of small crystal-like powder and vacuum pressure, we can promote the growth of new skin by removing the dead skin cells from the upper layers of the epidermis. The outcome is a smoother, more stunning look. Treatments last about 20 – 30 minutes if only the face is being treated, and can last up to an hour if the neck and upper chest are included. The recommended course of care consists of 4 – 6 treatments at 2-4 week intervals.
Medical Microdermabrasion has been branded with the nickname, the “Lunch-time Power Peel” because it can be performed in a short period and patients can return immediately to their daily routine including applying makeup. Typically you may experience slight irritation or wind-burnt sensation during treatment that can last for a few hours afterward. Results can be seen as early as the first visit, with a continued improvement noticed throughout your treatment program.
This treatment is right for anyone that wants to improve their skin appearance and reverse the signs of aging. It is safe for all skin textures, types, and colors and is performed by a medical profession under the supervision of a licensed physician (again, don’t be fooled by day spas advertising microdermabrasion…it’s not the same).
Medical Microdermabrasion will also improve, uneven skin tones, pigmentation, scarring, and sun-damaged skin.

There are over a hundred different microdermabrasion machines that are available in the United States. These machines vary based on weight, the types of filters they use, what type of substance they use to exfoliate the skin (some use sodium chloride instead of crystals), the power of the machine, and its intended use (some are made for salons while some require a physicians license to operate). If you are considering microdermabrasion, remember you get what you pay for. If a price sounds too good to be true, many times it is. At our office, we use only medical grade microdermabrasion technology giving you the best results this procedure has to offer. Our Parisian Peel™ machine is considered the top of the line machine available in the USA.
Before a patient chooses any type of medical procedure, we always advise them to first sit down with a true skincare professional and discuss which treatment option would be best for them. Because we feel so strongly about this, at our office we offer free physician consultation before treatment programs begin.
