Dermaglide Microdermabrasion Systems use sodium bicarbonate crystals to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin. This is combined with suction to clean pores, remove clogging and facilitate easier extraction.
The suction simultaneously draws blood closer to the surface of the skin, increasing the level of oxygenated blood in the dermis, and speeding up the natural production of collagen, elastin and fibroblast cells. This increases intercellular activity and the skins regeneration process which produces exceptional anti-aging results.
Fibroblasts are skin cells found in the dermis that produce collagen and play a key role in the continued health of your skin. Collagen provides firmness and structure to the skin and is essential in supporting the dermis (or middle layer) of the skin. The dermis is a supportive and elastic connective tissue. As we age, the collagen matrix that makes up most of the dermis breaks down. This creates an imbalance that causes the dermis to become lax and prone to wrinkling.
The Dermaglide microdermabrasion treatment is an outpatient skin rejuvenation procedure with almost no recovery time. Patients/Clients are able to resume activities immediately, with the skin generally only exhibiting a faint pink glow after the procedure. A series of 6 to 8 treatments at 7 to 10 day intervals are often needed to obtain optimal results. This resurfacing procedure softens fine lines and wrinkles and truly gives the skin a smoother look and feel. Many women find that they wear less makeup as a result of this skin rejuvenation procedure.
Microdermabrasion removes the dead skin cells that are blocking pores thus increasing the penetration of active topical products. Fine lines from around the eyes and lips can be treated, acne scars can be dramatically reduced and most textural conditions can be addressed. Microdermabrasion can also be helpful in removing open and closed comedones (blackheads and whiteheads).
Dermaglide microdermabrasion is the ultimate advancement in nonsurgical skin rejuvenation that immediately improves your skin’s appearance. Treatments are mild, yet highly effective at removing the most superficial layers of dead cells in order to produce a more youthful appearance.
