Sun damage, chronic skin conditions, and the natural aging process can take a toll on your skin’s appearance, resulting in fine lines, rough, dry patches, scars, and dark spots. If you are bothered by any of these skin concerns, microdermabrasion can be a great option to help you treat damaged skin and reveal a smoother, clearer complexion.

One of the most popular, tried-and-true skin resurfacing methods, microdermabrasion offers quick, comfortable treatment, zero downtime, and little to no risk for side effects.

Why consider microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion uses a fine blast of crystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal softer, smoother, and healthy skin beneath. By gently and precisely exfoliating the surface of your skin to the desired level, our experienced, licensed aestheticians can help dramatically reduce blemishes and achieve an overall improvement in your complexion.

Microdermabrasion can even help your skin care products work better by removing debris to improve absorption and making your skin more receptive to nutrients. It’s a very versatile treatment that can help patients of almost any skin type treat or minimize:

  • Blackheads and whiteheads
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Superficial age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dry or patchy skin
  • Large pores
