How Microdermabrasion Works:

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skincare treatment designed to exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. At our clinic, we utilize the advanced Athena Microdermabrasion Machine, known for its superior quality and performance.

The process begins with the machine’s special air-mix nozzle, which sprays fine crystals onto the surface of your skin. These crystals, contained in durable polycarbonate containers, effectively abrade the top layer of your skin, removing dead skin cells and impurities. The Athena Microdermabrasion Machine’s heavy-duty German compressor ensures that the treatment is consistent and reliable, maintaining the optimal level of suction and abrasion throughout the procedure.

As the crystals exfoliate your skin, the machine vacuums away the used crystals and dead skin cells, preventing clogging and reducing the amount needed. This dual-action process not only enhances the texture and tone of your skin but also stimulates collagen production, promoting healthier and more youthful-looking skin.

Overall, microdermabrasion with the Athena Microdermabrasion Machine is a safe and effective way to revitalize your skin. By gently removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, it helps to improve various skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone, leaving your skin brighter, smoother, and more radiant.
