What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is another form of physical exfoliation, which sloughs off the dead and dull surface layers of the skin. Ideal for smoothing and improving skin texture, tone, and color while stimulating collagen production to create healthy new skin cells. Microdermabrasion can also improve: oily or dull skin, enlarged pores, clogged pores, fine lines, and dull looking skin. Here at AliciaDion Beauty, this is a crystal free treatment method using natural diamond tipped wands instead of abrasive particles for skin resurfacing. This treatment works best as a regular treatment supporting your skin regime. For optimal results, I reccommend an initial course of 6, one taken every 2 weeks with a maintenance treatment every 6 weeks thereafter.
