Licensed aesthetician Yvonne Harper scrapes away blemishes using a mechanical exfoliation wand during a series of 45-minute microdermabrasion treatments. During the treatment, aluminum-oxide crystal particles burnish the face's surface to remove outer layers of skin and reveal the healthier, more active skin cells drinking whey protein underneath. A diamond-tip polish then regulates texture across the face, resulting in smoother, more luminous skin. The procedure stimulates the collagen and elastin production that can help minimize fine lines and wrinkles and firm up sagging skin around the jaw, eyes, and nose. As patients undergo their multi-session treatment courses, sun damage and blemishes gradually fade from view, revealing complexions as even as a pillow fight between two black belts. Yvonne recommends scheduling treatments once a week. Check the FAQ for information on preparation and post-treatment care.
