MICRODERMABRASION

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion machines “polish” the skin using a stream of fine mineral crystals or a diamond tip. Most Microdermabrasion systems have suction to vacuum loose skin cells and to enhance the blood circulation. Patients with fine lines, uneven skin tone, clogged pores, or acne prone skin can benefit from Microdermabrasion treatments. It is perfect for localized spot treatments or the entire face, neck and décolleté. Microdermabrasion, however, will not help deep wrinkles, dark brown spots, redness or skin growths.

The Microdermabrasion procedure is not painful. The intensity of the procedure and the suction level can be easily adjusted according to your skin type. Some possible minor skin irritation resolves soon after the procedure and varies from person to person. A session of Microdermabrasion treatment generally takes between 30 to 40 minutes and may be combined with facials and chemical peels. VITA takes Microdermabrasion to a medical level by using physician specific equipment, combined with our medical strength peels customized for your skin type. A calming moisturizer and sunscreen is usually applied after treatment.
Microdermabrasion should not be confused with Dermabrasion. With Dermabrasion, a physician “sands” your skin top layer with a special sharp instrument. The procedure is used to improve acne scars, pox marks, and scars from trauma; and requires a substantial downtime. Dermabrasion is only safe for people with fair skin. For patients with darker skin it can result in scarring or discoloration. In contrast, Microdermabrasion works safely on all skin types and colors.
