Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive spa procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the skin by treating sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other unwanted skin problems. The MegaPeel™ microdermabrasion system uses a gentle stream of tiny crystals to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin and produce fresher, younger-looking skin and a renewed appearance. It has been performed safely and successfully in the US since 1996.
During the MegaPeel procedure, the device wand will be moved gently across the targeted area to abrade the dead skin cells with minimal irritation. When performed in conjunction with a personalized skin care regimen, patients can achieve smoother skin, improved circulation, a more balanced skin tone and a reduced appearance of deep wrinkles and scarring.
This treatment is administered as a series of six 45-minute treatment sessions performed every one to two weeks. Patients may experience redness, irritation and flaking after each session, but can return to work and other regular activities as soon as desired. The results of this procedure will appear gradually, with full results developing after two to six months.
