What exactly is microdermabrasion?
Years of exposure and the aging process take a toll on the skin, creating lines, wrinkles, and changes in texture and color. Not only is the face affected but these changes occur on the neck, chest, arms and hands as well. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that gently resurfaces the outer layer of skin to promote new skin cell growth, and reveal fresh, healthy skin. The skin is polished, but not broken. Skin resurfacing also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance.
What is the Crystal Free skin resurfacing system?
This skin resurfacing system is the latest technology in microdermabrasion. Older systems utilize crystals to resurface the skin. The wand is crystal free incrusted with sterile exfoliating chips which are attached to a vacuum for a through exfoliation of the dead skin cells. The outcome is a uniform abrasion without the adverse effects of loose particles, gritty residue, burning, irritations and skin reactions.

How does it work?
The Crystal Free skin resurfacing wand removes the outer layer of skin (stratum corneum) by gently exfoliating the skin with natural exfoliating chips, while at the same time, vacuuming the dead skin cells away. This is done in a safe, sterile, precise, and controlled method. Exfoliation occurs as the wand is drawn across the skin.Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells, leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy, new skin cells. This procedure is a wonderful alternative or compliment to chemical peels. The Crystal Free resurfacing procedure is non-invasive, non-surgical, pain free and requires no downtime from work or social activities after treatment.

Unlike other systems the Crystal Free system does not utilize loose particles which contaminate you or the environment and the tips are one time use and disposable.
Microdermabrasion is a non-aggressive procedure performed to remove impurities without the use of harsh chemicals. The skin’s natural process of epidermal cell regeneration is expedited improving skin texture and tone. This treatment is ideal for reducing scars and fine lines. Most people see dramatic results in just one treatment; however, for optimal results we recommend a treatment package program.
