Many people understand what hair removal is, but we get questions about microdermabrasion and photo facials. Here is some information for those of you who may need some clarification.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses a spray of microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. Microdermabrasion also encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance.

What are Photo Facials?

Photo Facials are treatments that are proven to help diminish the effects of vascular redness, the appearance of rosacea, pigmented brown spots, sun damage, skin texture, and collagen structure all at once. With the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, dramatic improvements can now be accomplished with little or no downtime and with very minimal discomfort.

Read about the Groupon for microdermabrasion we have going now. These microdermabrasion Groupons are always very popular and we do run this deal occasionally if you happen to miss this one.
