Question: When I read about microdermabrasion procedures I get images of sterile cold instruments prodding me for hours and hours. Is this true or is the procedure a bit more hands on and therapeutic?
Answer: At Quintessa Medical Spa we really try to make your microdermabrasion experience similar to a facial at a high end day spa. It is a very hands-on procedure with the esthetician performing the microdermabrasion procedure in a very systematic fashion across the face. There is a light suction that is applied to the wand and the wand is taken across the face in sections to assure a thorough and complete exfoliation. Frequently we will combine this with a hydrating mask or even a gentle chemical peel as well as other products and nutrients for the skin. We tend to customize our specific approach for each individual’s skin problems, but the overall experience is very personal, warm, and overall relaxing.
