Skincare Elements Used in Microdermabrasion to Exfoliate and Restore Skin

January 28, 2014 | Blog, Microdermabrasion, Other

Atlanta & Alpharetta MicrodermabrasionWith over 10 years providing the best skincare for our Atlanta patients, the licensed providers of AYA Medical Spa have heard about nearly all ingredients from antioxidants in food to types of minerals that claim to effectively treat skin. One of our skincare treatments at Avalon in Alpharetta, Phipps Plaza, and Northside, microdermabrasion, features two unique elements to safely exfoliate damaged skin and regenerate new, healthy cells. Our two microdermabrasion options use either a diamond encrusted tip or aluminum oxide crystals attached to a mechanized wand to remove and vacuum away dead skin cells.

Known as DiamondTome and MegaPeel® Platinum treatments, microdermabrasion can be performed on almost any skin type and is an excellent non-invasive procedure as many patients compare it to a deep massage. As the diamond encrusted tip or crystals buff away and remove dead skin cells, they also increase circulation, induce collagen growth, and reduce the appearance of skin conditions. Patients can choose microdermabrasion as an anti-aging treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sun spots or for conditions such as acne, scars, and hyperpigmentation.

Since diamonds and crystals are among the hardest materials, they both provide thorough exfoliation that smooths and brightens skin. Patients can also choose an additional procedure like a relaxing facial (MicroFacial) or customized chemical peel (MicroPeel) to further rejuvenate skin. During your skin analysis, your licensed esthetician will discuss your skin type and concerns with you to choose the best treatment.
