Yesterday I had another microdermabrasion treatment.  It's just amazing how much better my skin looks after my treatments.  I see a reduction in those fine lines around my eyes that drive me crazy, a more even color, and a glow as the dead skin has been blasted away.  My esthetician, Jennifer at Westside Dermatology, blasted the top layer of skin with fine crystals until I was left with a healthy, glowing, new layer of skin. Microdermabrasion is a skin polishing technique that uses crystalized microparticles to smooth off and rub the top skin layer, removing the particles of dead skin to give it a smoother appearance.Microdermabrasion can:
  • Eliminate age spots and black heads.
  • Eliminate hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin).
  • Exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance.
  • Lessen the appearance of stretch marks.
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores.
  • Treat acne and the scars left by acne.
The process usually takes about an hour and costs around $100 per treatment.
