These treatments are used to refresh the skin by improving its texture and sheen. Exfoliation is an important aspect of any skin care regime because it removes the old outer layer of skin, enabling the active ingredients and hydrators in the treatment and in skin care products to treat the deeper epidermal cells. A series of medical “facials” are given to safely exfoliate the outermost layer of the epidermis. The treatment is followed with a mask to calm, nourish, and protect the freshly treated skin.
A tightening serum, peptides, or other active ingredients may then be applied to the skin. Microdermabrasion can also be used as pre-treatment before photodynamic and DOT™ treatments, and to speed recovery after photo rejuvenation.
