Course overview: Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture using a non-surgical method of mechanical exfoliation. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, hyper-pigmentation and age spots, acne scarring, stretch marks, dull complexion and uneven skin tones and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
Please note, a machine is NOT included in the course price.
The procedure uses a device with a special wand applicator with either crystals or an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it.
Microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure for most skin types.
