This non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment rejuvenates the skin on your face, neck and body with virtually no downtime! It deeply exfoliates the skin’s outer most layers to reduce imperfections such as sun damage, blemishes, fine lines, and uneven pigmentation.
Microdermabrasion mechanically buffs and polishes the skin using a diamond tip wand together with a suction that vacuums away dirt, dead cell build-up, and debris in pores. This promotes collagen production (helps fight against wrinkles) improves blood circulation, clears up dull skin, helps fade sun damage, freckles, and pigmentation problems, as well as improves the tone and texture of the skin.
Is Microdermabrasion good for acne?
Yes! Microdermabrasion improves blood circulation to the outer layers of skin, which rejuvenates and brings oxygen into the skin, which kills acne-causing bacteria.

Micro-needling, as known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is performed with a mechanical device that uses tiny sterile needles to puncture the outer layers of the skin (epidermis & dermis). This creates hundreds of tiny micro channels, which stimulates the body’s natural response to repair its own natural collagen.
