Microdermabrasion & LED Photofacial

What is Microdermabrasion? And why do we all need to exfoliate our skin?

Microdermabrasion, also known as “microderm” or “lunchtime facelift”, is a safe, non-chemical, non-invasive procedure and one of the most effective anti-aging treatments. It is a gentle skin resurfacing treatment that can rejuvenate and restore the natural glow to the skin, without the need for downtime.

The skin is constantly generating new skin cells at the lower layer (deep layer- dermis) and sending them to the surface (topmost layer- epidermis). As the cells rise to the surface they gradually die and become filled with keratin. These keratinized skin cells are essential because they give our skin its protective quality. But they are constantly sloughing off to make way for younger cells.

As we age the process of cell turnover slows down. Cells start to pile up unevenly on the skin’s surface, giving it a dry, rough, dull appearance. Exfoliation is beneficial because it removes those cells on top layer of the skin (stratum corneum) that are clinging on, revealing the fresher, smoother and younger skin cells below. Some of the skin’s visible imperfections like fine lines and sun damaged are removed. And now without stratum corneum layer, topical high-tech skin care products can penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.

Our Microdermabrasion Can Include LED Photo Rejuvenation & Vitamin C Serums to Maximize Results.


Photo Rejuvenation LED light Therapy

Red or Blue Light 

Infrared LED Light Therapy Uses

Infrared LED light therapy uses concentrated beams of light to help remove skin blemishes, especially on the face. In general, infrared light therapy uses a combination of red light and infrared light to promote skin health because the Light-emitting diode (LED) lights emit light at red and infrared wavelengths. The red light helps stimulate healing, which can treat acne scars, rosacea, age spots and blemishes caused by broken capillaries. Infrared therapy tends to be used to treat wrinkles and other problems caused by poor skin support, such as translucent skin or coarse skin.

Blue Light Therapy for Acne

How it Works: Specific wavelengths of blue light target the strain of bacteria that plays a pivotal role in causing acne for many people. The light causes the development of oxygen radicals that kill P. acnes bacteria without damaging healthy skin.

  • Why you should consider it: Demonstrated effective in destroying levels of acne-causing bacteria; best for mild to moderate inflammatory acne; there are handheld devices you can use at home; reduced potential for side effects (such as dryness or peeling) that can occur with benzoyl peroxide or topical prescription products; a worthwhile option for those whose skin cannot tolerate topical disinfectants; pain-free, no downtime; safe to have done when pregnant or breastfeeding.

Red Light Therapy for Wrinkles

How it Works: Wavelengths of red light that may help improve skin’s barrier function by improving its ability to retain key elements it needs to heal and generate new collagen after its production has slowed due to age or cumulative damage. Red light LEDs are also believed to target the skin’s oil glands to reduce cytokines, a class of pro-inflammatory substances believed to play a role in chronic acne.

  • Why you should consider it: May help reduce signs of aging, including wrinkles around the eyes; a better choice for those struggling with acne and wrinkles; minimal risk of side effects, especially when used without light-activating chemicals (this is common when done by a medical professional); no downtime.
