Have you noticed your complexion looking a little dull and lackluster lately? You’re not alone. The human skin renews itself roughly every 28 days through a process called skin cell renewal. This process involves the shedding of old cells from the skin surface as newer cells produced in the underlying epidermis are pushed outward, revealing brighter, healthier skin.
As we get older though, this process begins to slow, as does the skin’s ability to shed older skin cells. This build up of dead skin cells can create a layer of lifeless cells that clog the skin’s surface and cause your complexion to take on a sallow, grey appearance.

Give Lackluster Skin a Boost with Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical, exfoliating treatment that removes dead skin cells from the skin’s surface and stimulates cellular turnover to reveal tighter, smoother skin below. There are many different products and techniques used in microdermabrasion treatment, but the basis of the procedure involves the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of dead skin cells.
A specialized hand piece is moved over the surface of the skin evenly to gently polish the superficial layer of the skin as an attached vacuum wand simultaneously suctions and removes dead skin cells.
This gentle abrasion process stimulates new cells to emerge with fresh collagen. Skin immediately looks brighter, fresher and more radiant. Microdermabrasion is great for diminishing fine lines, age spots, uneven skin pigmentation and the appearance of facial acne.
