Microdermabrasion in Nashville, TN
What is Microdermabrasion?
The dirt, oils, and dead skin cells on the surface of your skin eventually reach the pores, causes blockages and bacteria growth that can lead to blemishes and a dull complexion. Microdermabrasion is a skin maintenance treatment that removes these substances from the surface of your skin to keep your pores pure and healthy.
The microdermabrasion treatment is performed with a device that ejects fine crystals at a high speed. The crystals dislodge skin cells and other substances from the surface of the skin that are simultaneously suctioned away by the device. The treatment is very relaxing and quite effective for restoring a healthy appearance to your skin.
