The Skin and Wellness Center utilizes a diamond-tipped wand, to slough off the top layer (epidermis) of your skin and stimulate new skin growth. The fresh skin just below the surface is then exposed, creating a glowing new complexion. This technique also helps to stimulate collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. There is almost no discomfort with microdermabrasion, meaning you won’t need a topical or local anesthetic and there is no recovery or downtime.

Commonly Asked Questions
What does Microdermabrasion involve?
Once your skin is cleansed (with Gentle Cleanser from Trust Skin Care Systems), the hand held device is used in a specific pattern on areas of your face to facilitate the exfoliation process. The hand piece also has a vacuum mechanism to remove skin debris throughout the service.
How much time does the treatment take?
A typical Microdermabrasion face treatment takes 20-30 minutes. A longer service time may be required for additional areas of the body such as the neck or decollete.
Can I add a service to a Microdermabrasion treatment?
Yes. We have a variety of services that can be added on to the treatment, such as a Face Sculpting, Heat Mask, Chemical Peels and a Facial.
How many treatments are required?
A minimum of 6 treatments are required. A consultation with our skin care specialists will determine your best course of action for maximum results.
Will I experience discomfort during the treatment?
Microdermabrasion is painless. You may feel a slight scratching sensation in sensitive areas around the eyes or nose, however, most patients report no discomfort at all.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for Microdermabrasion?
You will need to discontinue aspirin based medicines, Retin-A type products or glycolic acid products for a few days prior to your service. Sunbathing and waxing should be avoided as well.
Is there anyone who should not get Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is not recommended for those who suffer from keratosis, individuals with undiagnosed lesions, active rosacea or acne, diabetes, eczema, psoriasis or lupus. Recent laser surgery or Accutane acne treatment may be a contraindication. Discuss your medical history during your consultation with your skin care specialist to determine if this treatment is right for you.
What can’t Microdermabrasion do?
Microdermabrasion can’t reverse severe scarring or deeply pitted and spotted areas of this skin. This treatment works strictly at the surface of your skin and could not reconstruct the epidermis. It can’t remove tattoos, make darker pigmented areas disappear or treat severe burn scars.
