The Strand Salon's certified epidermal artisans refurbish weatherworn frontispieces with a 15- to 30-minute microdermabrasion skin-sprucing treatment. To kick things off, an amicable aesthetician will expunge loitering filth during a preprocedure cleansing. Then, the skin specialist will gingerly slough off sullied epidermal layers and dead skin cells using a diamond-tipped wand that sluices the face with a stream of microcrystals. By reducing tegument thickness, the treatment gooses lazy collagen into production mode, shooing away fine lines and burrowing skin gophers. A sumptuous slathering of moisturizer completes the treatment, leaving faces hydrated and refreshed. The Strand recommends clients abstain from using makeup and undergoing ritualistic lard baths 24 hours prior to their appointment.
