You may have heard friends talk about having a "Parisian Peel," "Derma Peel," "Power Peel," "Microderm Peel," "Ultra Peel," or "lunchtime peel"; all are types of Microdermabrasion, another tool available to revitalize and resurface skin. The treatment uses a precise diamond tipped wand to exfoliate the top layers of skin loose without using crystals or other abrasives typically used by crystal based microdermabrasion systems. Think of a sandblaster followed by a vacuum cleaner and you have the general idea of Microdermabrasion.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is performed at Skinovative requires no anesthesia. Using a precision diamond tipped hand piece, the esthetician gentle abrasive action exfoliates the outermost layers of the skin. The technician can control the power of the spray, from a gentle buffing of the skin to deeper exfoliation where needed. At a low power, Microdermabrasion might be compared to results similar to those of glycolic acid peels. A full-face treatment generally takes 30 to 40 minutes.

What results can you expect?

Following the treatment, your skin appears lightly pink, but there is no oozing or obvious redness. Some patients say their face feels as if their skin has been mildly sun- or wind-burned. The skin may peel. In the case of a deeper treatment level for more blemished or thicker skins, the skin will appear slightly red and swollen from a few hours to a few days. Similar to a light peel, the procedure can improve fine lines and wrinkles, blackheads and whiteheads, superficial pigmentation, and give the skin a healthy-looking glow. It may be used in conjunction with Micro peel or laser skin resurfacing.

Microdermabrasion is ideal for:

Individuals who don't want to undergo the time, expense, discomfort, longer healing time, and possible side effects of alternative skin resurfacing treatments such as Micro peel, dermabrasion or laser skin resurfacing, and have fairly minor skin problems: fine lines, mild acne, blotches, pigmentation, small scars.

The best candidates for Microdermabrasion are women and men who have:

  • Healthy skin
  • Good health
  • Realistic expectations

What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion over other procedures?

  • There is less recovery time
  • There is minimal discomfort
  • You can resume normal activities immediately

What is a Micro Peel?

Micro Peels have been used for decades to revitalize and resurface skin. They involve applying a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of skin and reveal a younger, clearer, more radiant complexion. They are commonly performed on the face, chest and hands.

Light, medium and deep peels penetrate to different levels and, consequently, produce different aesthetic results. Generally, the deeper the peel penetrates, the more profound the results, but the more lengthy the recovery period. An individual's skin type, degree of damage and personal expectations will help determine which Micro Peel is most appropriate.

How Does It Work?

The process usually takes 30 to 45 minutes and although some patients' faces may seem a bit pink afterwards, there is no "downtime" and makeup can be applied immediately after the treatment. You can return to your normal schedule right away (though we recommend allowing the skin to breath for up to 24 hours post treatment). Two to three days following an ultra light peel, patients may experience temporary flaking, dryness and scaling, which can be controlled with a topical emollient.

How Do I Get Started?

We have a wide range of different peels, so we can customize a treatment specifically for your skin's needs. Please do not hesitate to ask one of our knowledgeable staff for more information.
