Why You Should Try a Microdermabrasion


For years, Microdermabrasion has been a preferred choice for facial rejuvenation because of the fact that immediate results are seen and there is no downtime!

Even Hollywood's A-listers like Cameron Diaz have made it known that Microdermabrasion procedures are an important part of their routine.

Microdermabrasion is successfully indicated for:

  • Large oversized pores and congested skin

  • Oily or leathery skin texture

  • Clogged pores in acne cases

Dead skin cells can be removed or exfoliated for smoother, healthier skin in about 30 minutes or less.

This non-surgical or non-invasive procedure tightens and softens skin.

It can be used on all skin types and clients of all ethnicities with long-lasting results on the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows and knees.

The procedure is virtually painless and requires no discomfort or downtime from work.

A single procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes and should be repeated at intervals of one to two weeks depending on skin type and condition.

After the procedure, there is a slight blushing and mild redness of the skin, which resolves within one or two hours.

Microdermabrasion is a safe, effective, non-surgical approach to skin rejuvenation that has been performed for years around the world.

Microdermabrasion was invented by the Italians in 1985 and was FDA approved in 1996. It is an ideal treatment to bring about a fresh glow to the face.

Microdermabrasion reduces the pigment changes that are common on the face and neck. In addition to improving hyperpigmentation, microdermabrasion diminishes fine lines, wrinkles, shallow acne scars, pore size, and sun damage.

Using diamond tips, we gently remove the top layers to reveal the healthy skin beneath. You are able to apply medical grade skin care products more effectively as there is approximately 50 percent more product absorption post-Microdermabrasion.

Makeup application also appears smoother.

Microdermabrasion has gained popularity in the United States in the last decade. Most patients report mild or no discomfort during the procedure and Virginians are happy with the results at Sanctuary Cosmetic Center.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Always a popular question with any treatment!

Many clients experience softer, smoother glowing skin after the first treatment. The recommended treatment plan is between two and 12 treatments, depending on the condition and type of skin.

Can I Combine Microdermabrasion with Other Procedures?


Microdermabrasion is the perfect complement to other procedures including facials, Botox or Dermal Fillers.

Discuss Microdermabrasion treatments with a trusted medical facility in your area and create the best possible treatment plan to get the glowing skin you deserve.
