What is Microdermabrasion?
Years of sun exposure and the aging process take their toll on the skin, creating lines, wrinkles, and changes in texture and color. Not only is the face a likely victim of these changes, but the neck, chest, cleavage, arms and hands may be affected as well. Microdermabrasion can reduce the effects of aging on our skin. Microdermabrasion is a treatment that improves wrinkles, skin texture and color by removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it more supple and vibrant. Microdermabrasion also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. Microdermabrasion treatments are administered by a medical clinician or a trained aesthetician. Microdermabrasion is also known as “the lunch-time peel.” A wonderful alternative to laser or chemical peels, microdermabrasion is non-invasive, pain-free, and non-surgical and requires no down time after treatment. The length of the treatment and number of treatments vary depending on skin type and condition. Results are gradual but highly effective. Most people experience softer, smoother skin after their first treatment.

What is Oxy-Mist?
Oxy-Mist is a skin recovery program that will put your skin on the road to recovery quicker than any other program that is currently available. Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peeling and Laser Resurfacing technologies are here to stay to help improve the texture and quality of your skin. All these treatments involve removing top layers of skin to a greater or lesser degree. Oxy-Mist contains Amino-Plex® a technologically advanced product with over 100 ingredients containing amino acids, trace minerals, electrolytes and micellized Vitamin E. Using medical grade oxygen as a delivery source, Oxy-Mist is sprayed onto the skin immediately after the procedure. This treatment takes only a few minutes and feels fabulous. Oxy-Mist has been shown to improve the quality of healing and hastens recovery time. After your peel or laser procedure when the skin is compromised, the process of healing begins with the activation of special cells that destroy bacteria and remove old or broken skin cells. The blood flow to the treated area of the skin increases, brining nutrients and oxygen. New collagen is stimulated, to strengthen and heal the skin. The Oxy-Mist treatment will make you look healthier and give your skin a smoother texture than you ever thought possible. If you are looking for the answer to healthy, vital looking skin, then Oxy-Mist is the answer.
