Microdermabrasion sloughs off the dead, dull surface layer of the skin to unclog pores and improve fine lines and uneven skin texture. At Upper West Spa we utilize an Italian Ultrapeel System that uses sterile disposable tips to gently remove impurities and renew the top layer of the epidermis to reveal a bright and even skin tone. This treatment is ideal for combination, oily or congested skin types and combines nicely with deep cleansing facials, glycolic or lactic peels and Multi Wave LED Light Therapy.
Ideal For: Oily, combination, and congested skin
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that gently removes the thickest outer layer of skin. Our aestheticians use an innovative instrument to lightly sand and rejuvenate this uneven skin layer. Clients often request microdermabrasion to treat scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks.
Microdermabrasion is safe and effective for most skin types. The procedure uses fine-grained crystals to gently exfoliate the skin without the risk of scarring, infection, or other forms of skin damage. Microdermabrasion is also minimally invasive and painless.
The best procedure for you depends on your skin type and desired results. Microdermabrasion is considered a “mechanical” or physical exfoliation, while peels use chemicals to remove the top layers of the skin. In certain situations, clients with more resilient skin types may combine the two treatments to optimize their results.
