Microdermabrasion

Diamond microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses a diamond tip wand to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. Microdermabrasion also encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance.Positive effects can be visible after only one treatment but it is recommended to undergo a series of treatments in order to permanently improve the condition of the epidermis. The depth, amount and frequency of the treatments are dependant on the state of the skin.
