Microdermabrasion is a mild mechanical exfoliation that removes the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing the fresh, healthy cells beneath.

Can women of color get microdermabrasion treatments? I have heard mixed reviews.

Yes, women of color can get microderm, but you need to make sure that your skin therapist is familiar with your skin type.

Yes, we provide microdermabrasions and have not seen a problem. However, that being said, temporary hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin) is always a risk with any procedure that causes skin irritation or trauma, especially in people with darker skin.

Absolutely! Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types and sensitivities.

Yes, african american skin can absolutely get microdermabrasion! You will love the way your skin feels after your treatment.
