Microdermabrasion is a skin treatment performed at the BioSpa by our aesthetician Pamela. This type of skin resurfacing treatment is used to treat the following skin conditions:
The BioSpa uses the DermaSweep wand for microdermabrasion treatments. Using a variable-level vacuum and an assortment of treatment tips, the DermaSweep wand gently lifts the skin against the appropriate treatment tip, removing the top most layer of skin. Your skin is left smoother while the vacuum action of the wand stimulates blood flow and cleans pores.
Increasing blood flow to the skin’s surface encourages collagen production resulting in firming younger looking skin. Collagen is a protein in the skin that makes the skin appear tight and smooth. Aging and environmental damage cause collagen production to decrease, resulting in poor skin quality.
Pamela has performed countless microdermabrasion treatments at the BioSpa. She will ensure you are comfortable at all times. DermaSweep is a painless, safe treatment which takes approximately 30 minutes to perform. The time will vary depending on the number of areas and severity of the skin issue.
At the conclusion of your treatment, your skin will be warm and have a pink tone. This should last no more than about one hour. Pamela will provide you with all of your post treatment instructions, so you can properly take care of your newly rejuvenated skin.
Typically results will be seen after one treatment. Skin will be smooth and appear healthier and more radiant. Optimal results will be seen with a series of 3 to 6 treatments spaced approximately 2 weeks apart. Pamela will provide her recommended treatment plan when you first meet with her.
