Microdermabrasion treatment might sound like an intimidating treatment, but it is actually a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves exfoliating the top layer of skin using a handheld device. Scrubbing away can only take away so much of damage done to your skin however, with microdermabrasion treatment, this damage is effectively treated resulting in a younger looking complexion.

What to expect during Microdermabrasion Treatment?
Depending on what our doctor recommends for your particular skin, you will be expecting one of the two types of microdermabrasion treatments:
- Crystal microdermabrasion treatment:
In this method, you can expect our aesthetician to use a handheld device to spray fine crystals on your skin to scrub away the outer skin layers.
- Diamond-tip handpiece
In this method, our expert will scrub away very gently, the outer layer of your skin using a diamond-tip handpiece. Depending on how much pressure is applied, and how long it is applied for, the handpiece will suction away dead cells in your skin.
You can expect to be occupied with these treatments for anywhere between 30 to 40 minutes.
