Purpose & Background*
The Hydro or Microdermabrasion treatments removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously providing the new skin with cleansing, extractions, hydrating and moisturizing serums. Hydro or Microdermabrasion treatments are safe for all skin types as it is completely noninvasive and non- irritating.
During the treatment, the skin is cleansed and then the Hydro or Microdermabrasion treatment is administered. Each treatment is customized to meet the unique skin conditions of each patient. The treatment itself is often described as feeling like "a cool paintbrush with a vacuum” moving over the skin. Following the Hydro or Microdermabrasion treatment, the skin is moisturized and protected with sunscreen. For best results, it is necessary to complete a series of six treatments, however, improvement may be seen after just one treatment.
Many people report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one Hydro or Microdermabrasion treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. A series of 6 treatments are recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne and oily skin. After your first series of treatments, you may want to maintain your results with a Hydro or Microdermabrasion treatment every 2 to 4 weeks.
