By age 35, almost 50% of the skin’s ability to consume and retain oxygen has been impaired. Less oxygen results in more wrinkles, fine lines, and dull looking skin. Microdermabrasion for rejuvenating skin on the face and neck can improve fine wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, soften acne scars, and reduce enlarged pores.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a summer-safe treatment to treat dry, dead skin, clogged pores, fine lines and uneven skin tone. It’s the perfect treatment to keep your skin clean, clear and glowing.
Many of the most common skin concerns can be treated with microdermabrasion therapy. This includes skin discoloration and the buildup of dead skin on the skin’s surface. Microdermabrasion clients can experience the benefits of having clear skin with painless treatments that require only about 30 minutes of your time. There are very few preparatory and post-therapy requirements for this type of treatment. Our professional staff can determine if microdermabrasion is the right type of treatment for your skin type.
Microdermabrasion is the most complete and directed skin-clearing treatment available. If you are experiencing skin problems that could be addressed through non-surgical and nonprescriptive means, our team at Volaré Esthetics Med Spa & Laser Center, can help. Our Venus Glow™ Advanced Technology will open up deep clean pores, and treat the skin of a variety of common skin concerns, leaving you with a glowing, healthier looking complexion!
Venus Glow™ Technology
The Venus Glow™ machine uses 2 ultra-fine jet streams that are able to reach into the depth of the pore to loosen dirt, debris and excess sebum. The vacuum simultaneously gently pulls the skin to open the pores by removing these impurities from the stratum corneum. The level of suction can be adjusted based on your individual skin condition. While the skin is being pulled upward, the tip spins 360-degrees to evenly spread Glow Serum that the two fine jet streams strongly expel.
Additionally, the vacuum increases local micro blood circulation while the spinning tip massages the skin to increase the spread of nutrients released from the bloodstream.
