Reveal baby-smooth skin.
Microdermabrasion is a deep exfoliation treatment that removes the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal healthy and glowing skin. This treatment is perfect to treat uneven skin tone, dullness, and rough texture. Yes, your skin will look five years younger after this treatment.
Psst… our Microdermabrasion Facial has been called the best microdermabrasion in the South Bay area.
This treatment is suitable for all skin types, but it’s especially good if you’re asking yourself:
• How can I diminish acne scarring?
• How can I even out my skin tone?
• How can I diminish fine lines?
• How can I bring life back to my skin?
• How can I make my skin smoother and softer?
Since this treatment is meant to remove the top layer of skin, we don’t recommend it if you have active acne, or if you’re extremely sensitive. For acne-prone skin, check out our Acne Facial. For sensitive skin, our Oxygen Infusion Facial might be right up your alley.
Depending on the package you choose (the classic or signature) you’ll be directed to either the treatment room or the bar. Then, your esthetician will start the microdermabrasion treatment. We do this with a diamond tip tool that gives a precise, deep yet gentle exfoliation.
After about 10 minutes of exfoliation, we follow up with the rest of the treatment. A delicious mask, hydrating serums, and of course, oxygen infusion to rehydrate your skin and reduce redness and inflammation. To end things, you’ll get spoiled with a refreshing face and temple massage with icy glass globes (they feel so nice and cooling!).
Elle Marie trains her entire team so no matter who your esthetician is, you’ll get Elle’s distinctive touch and her 25 years of experience every time.
The Results – Smooth skin for days
Immediately after your treatment, you may experience mild redness, after all, we are gently exfoliating the outer layer of the skin. But, in the next few hours, redness and inflammation will diminish to reveal silky smooth skin.
You’ll notice your skincare works better because it can be better absorbed. Not only that, your makeup will go on like a dream. With a smoother texture, your skin will be the perfect canvas for makeup (not that you’ll want to wear any!).
Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is a microdermabrasion facial?
A microdermabrasion facial is a deeply exfoliating treatment done with a diamond-tip wand-like tool that gets passed across your skin. It is a more gentle and accessible option to get smoother skin than more invasive cosmetic procedures. Its results have been medically reviewed to be one of the best options for increasing cellular turnover.
2. Is microdermabrasion safe?
Microdermabrasion can have negative side effects if performed incorrectly. However, as long as it is done by a trained professional it is perfectly safe. Your safety and well-being are our number one priority when performing any service. At Elle Marie Spa, all of our certified estheticians are trained by Elle Marie herself. You get Elle’s 25 years of experience with every treatment.
3. Does microdermabrasion hurt?
Microdermabrasion does not hurt, but you can feel mild discomfort throughout the treatment. If you’re a cat person, you’ll love this: The procedure has been compared to the rough lick of a cat's tongue! After your session, we finish up with cooling globes that help reduce discomfort. Your esthetician will communicate with you throughout your facial to ensure you are comfy and happy.
4. How often should you get a microdermabrasion facial?
Diamond microdermabrasion facials gently exfoliate the outer layer of your skin. To keep your skin smooth and dead skin cells off, we recommend getting a microdermabrasion facial once a month, but not more than twice a month (you wouldn’t want to over-exfoliate your skin).
