Microdermabrasion

At 7e Fit Spa, we only use the best products on the market. We use microdermabrasion tips covered in tiny diamonds for skin exfoliation.  The dead skin cells are then vacuum away from the microdermabrasion machine. As there are no particles created when performing a microdermabrasion, it is safe for treatment around the eye and mouth areas without problems. In fact, the diamond tip microdermabrasion provides a more thorough and effective treatment for stretch marks or deeper acne scars.

Diamond Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion relies on suction in combination with the diamond tips to exfoliate the skin. With different suction levels, the microdermabrasion has the added benefit of stimulating the production of collagen production and increasing blood flow to the skin. Microdermabrasion is able to offer fast improvements for skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars and uneven skin tone.

Microdermabrasion treatments are meant to be progressive, not aggressive. Generally speaking, results from microdermabrasion are more apparent after three treatments. However, most clients after the first session notice that the skin will appear fresher, cleaner, smoother and softer. Microdermabrasion treatments should be performed every other week for 6 to 8 sessions. Microdermabrasion aintenance treatments are suggested once every 4 to 6 weeks there after.

We stress the importance of using a high quality sun protectant product as well as minimizing sun exposure. Exposure to UV radiation is one of the key factors in speeding the skin aging process.
