Microdermabrasion Facial By Joanne

MICRODERMABRASION FACIAL

I offer an Esthetics Skin Care Microdermabrasion Facial that deeply exfoliates and cleanses the outer layer of skin. The debris is vacuumed away by a special patented diamond chip wand.  After exfoliation, I apply a nourishing peptide mask which rejuvenates and stimulates new skin growth. Then I apply a therapeutic moisturizer and finally a protective sunscreen. The end result is a beautiful improved skin. You will look and feel better!
I use the most advanced professional microdermabrasion machine the New Apeel, made by Altair Instruments. The medical grade natural diamond chip wand gently polishes away dead skin, dirt and oil. Simultaneously a vacuum that is attached to the wand sucks away unwanted debris. This safe and comfortable procedure promotes the growth of fresh collagen and firming new skin cells while revealing a smother brighter skin.  There is no down time and it can even be done on your lunch break.

Microdermabrasion Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?

Microdermabrasion is a coesmetic procedure that uses a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand the skin and remove the thicker, uneven outer layer. Used to treat light discoloration, fine wrinkles, sun damage and stretch marks. It stimulate the growth of new skin, thicken collagen wich results in younger looking complexion.

HOW DOES MICRODERMABRASION HELP SKIN ?

Microdermabrasion deeply exfoliates skin  and clears away dead cells and surface imperfections. This stimulates the growth of new collagen and promotes a healthier more luminous complexion.

WHAT ARE THE INDICATIONS FOR MICRODERMABRASION?

  • WRINKLES & FINE LINES
  • CLOGGED PORES, BLACKHEADS, WHITEHEADS
  • AGING SPOTS & HYPERPIGMENTATIONS
  • SUN DAMAGED SKIN
  • IMPROVES OVERALL HEALTH OF SKIN

WHAT IS THE BEST MICRODERMABRASION MACHINE AND TECHNIQUE?

I offer the New Apeel by Altair Instruments which is the Gold Standard in Skin Exfoliation.   It is the original crystal-free  microderabrasion treatment designed to smoothen and soften the skin.

 

WHAT ARE THE TWO KINDS OF MICRODERMABRASION?

There are two kinds of microdermabrasion treatments. One involves a hand held device that sprays tiny crystals across your skin. An attached vacuum simultaneously suctions those exfoliating crystals back into the machine, along with the dead or loosened skin. 

The newer approach uses a diamond-tip wand that is gently moved across your skin to exfoliate. The crystal – free diamond tip wands are the best for the client, the professional and the environment. It is safe for all types of skin. 

 

WHAT ARE THE CONTRAINDICATION FOR MICRODERMABRASION?

Microdermabrasion should be avoided if you have the following conditions:

  • Active acne
  • Eczema or dermatitis
  • rosacea
  • uncontrolled diasbetes
  • skin cancer
  • pregnant women
  • those taking Accutane or retinoids should postpone treatment

 

HOW MANY MICRODERMABRASION TREATMENT ARE RECOMMENDED?

For the maximim results 8-10 treatments are recommended. However, one treatment does have a very effective exfoliation and smoothing result. 

WHY IS THE DIAMOND TIP CRYSTAL-FREE MICRODERMABRASION BETTER THAN THE USING CRYSTALS?

The crystals were highly abrasive and created inflammation and heat on the skin. If patients already suffered from inflammation, for example due to rosacea or acne, this approach could actually make their condition worse. In addition, the crystal based method resulted in a bit of downtime, which isn’t ideal for busy men and women who have lives, careers and families to get back to.

The NEW APEEL By Altair Instruments microdermabrasion treatments use diamonds tipped wands to abrade the skin instead. They are superior to the crystal-based method in a number of ways:

  • Enhanced Results – Microdermabrasion with diamonds is gentle yet still delivers enhanced results, polishing the skin and clearing away dead cells
  • No Down Time – There’s no downtime associated with the DiamondTome wand, with most patients only reporting minor redness shortly after their treatment.
  • Customizable – The coarseness of the diamonds can be adjusted to offer a gentle or more aggressive treatment, depending on your sensitivity and skin condition.
  • Gentle approach -Unlike microdermabrasion with crystals, the diamond tipped wand doesn’t cause heat or inflammation on the skin.

WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED WITH MICRODERMABRASION?

I treat the whole body from head to toe. Some of the popular zones of treatment are: the delicate eye area, lower lip to lower jaw, face, back,  legs, neck & decollete.
