What is microdermabraision?
Microdermabrasion is a safe, easy, painless and effective anti-aging skin treatment. InShape Medical uses a high quality, medical grade machine to get superior results. Our certified medical staff gently passes a stainless steel hand piece over your skin. This wand sends a gentle stream of crystals toward the skin and then immediately vacuums off the removed dead skin cells and micro abrasive crystals. In doing so, a microdermabrasion facial removes the outermost layers of skin without the use of chemicals. By revealing the more youthful looking skin underneath, treatments can help your face to look younger and your skin to look more glowing and vibrant.
