The results of the SmartPeel™ are immediate. There’s no healing time, no need to hide away for days or weeks before returning to your normal lifestyle. The combination of skin exfoliation and slight suction stimulates production of new, living cells at the base level of the skin. This causes cellular turnover and improved blood flow. The result is healthier, fresher skin with enhanced elasticity and skin texture. This treatment may be used on just about any part of your body. Pair with Dermawave™ Ultrasonic Skin Rejuvenation!
It is the most natural way to evenly and safely exfoliate the skin without chemicals or a laser. The exfoliation process rejuvenates the skin by utilizing ultra-fine crystals to remove the upper layer of the epidermis. Studies have shown that microdermabrasion increases the production of collagen and elastin. The final result is firmer, more youthful looking skin over time.
Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types and colors. If you have open lesions due to acne you must wait for the acne lesions to heal. It is best to talk with your Medical Aesthetician for alternative treatments.
