Microdermabrasion in Atlanta, GA
What is Microdermabrasion?
Skin is exposed to elements every day which can contribute to damage. From the sun’s rays and pollutants to the creams and other products you use, your skin tone and texture may be displeasing.
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical and non-invasive procedure that exfoliates the skin, removing the outer layer of dry, dead cells. In conjunction, the treatment stimulates the production of new skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, leaving patients with a more even skin tone. Because it allows products to penetrate the skin more easily, the treatment improves results gained from using anti-aging and skin-bleaching products.
What Are the Benefits?
Having tried the treatment once, you probably want to repeat it. The effect will be noticeable after the first procedure.
With no downtime, we recommend our patients receive this procedure every two to three weeks. With packages available, our patients who have treatment on a regular basis see cumulative results.

- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores
- Treat acne and the scars left by acne
Can the Procedure Help with Acne?
Microdermabrasion can be a good treatment for certain types of acne and acne scarring. This treatment allows us to reduce the number of comedones forming and remove oils and dirt that can cause pores to become clogged and form breakouts.
During your initial consultation, our skin care professionals can determine if this is the best treatment for you.
Microdermabrasion with CrystalsOur basic microdermabrasion facial utilizes a handpiece that allows the crystals to release at a certain rate and gives more of a sort of “sandblasting” effect that removes the dead skin, dirt, and oils along with the suction to vacuum the crystals back up into a canister to be properly disposed of.
Microdermabrasion with Diamond TipOur Diamond Glow facial utilizes a handpiece that the diamond tip grit attaches to. This grit buffs and breaks up the dead skin and dirt, along with the suction that is picking up the debris and vacuuming out the clogged pores simultaneously. At the end of this treatment, all of the debris collected from the skin is collected into the waste jar and able to be seen by the patient.
Can the Procedure Help With Stretch Marks?Microdermabrasion can be used to address many issues, stretch marks being one of the many. The treatment addresses the outermost layer of the skin and stimulates collagen and elastin to help repair the stretch marks, which are areas where the collagen and elastin that support the skin have previously ruptured.
Microdermabrasion for MenThe highly stressful environment is the #1 reason for problems with men’s skin. Regular proper exfoliation is important, and microdermabrasion for men perfectly achieves this goal. The procedure uses special equipment that physically scrapes away the top dead layer of the skin to make it look healthy and glowing. With no downtime, no pain, and no limitations, male patients see the difference in their skin right after the procedure. The skin becomes radiant, glowing, and healthy looking.
