This procedure is performed utilizing a medical grade
Microdermabrasion system know as DermaPeel. Aluminum
oxide crystals are applied to the skin surface under high
pressure to remove the dead outer skin cell layer.
The debris is then evacuated by negative pressure.
This process stimulates wound repair mechanisms in the dermis,
enhancing replacement of important constituents such as
collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans. The net
effect is smoother, brighter, younger appearing skin.
It is useful for treatment of acne, mild acne scars, sun
damage, photo aged skin and as an adjunctive procedure to
photodynamic therapy. Many patients undergo a series
of treatments to enhance the effectiveness of their topical
skin care regimens.
