Parisian Peel® Medical Microdermabrasion
Medical Microdermabrasion is the most trusted gentle, non-invasive skin rejuvenation therapy available today. Medical Microdermabrasion uses a directed stream of micro-crystals, combined with a vacuum to rejuvenate the skin.
A must for all skin types, this safe and effective non-invasive exfoliating procedure removes the top layers of dead skin cells. The outcome is smoother, clearer, young-looking skin.
The treatment addresses the most common skin conditions with topicals for hydrating, skin lightening, and acne. The result is an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, as well as sun-damaged and acne-prone skin. The face, neck, décolleté, and hands may be treated.
Medical Microdermabrasion can easily be performed on your lunch hour so you can return immediately to your normal activities. Your skin will have a warm, pinkish glow that will usually fade in about 30 minutes, leaving your skin looking healthy and renewed. While you may see visible results after the first treatment, lasting and more significant results will be seen after 4 to 6 treatments, each spaced three to four weeks apart, supplemented by a daily post-care routine.
