Microdermabrasion is often used as a skin-freshening technique, but is capable of so much more! Micro’s repair skin suffering from: sun damage, texture issues, acne conditions, general discolorations and the effects of aging. When used regularly, these repairs will promote a reduction in hyperpigmentation, photo-damage, fine lines/wrinkles, and acne scars. Removing the dead skin will help to dramatically brighten skin tone and clear up breakouts. It will also aid in the penetration of skin care products by up to 50% and also allows make-up to go on easier due to the smoothness of post treatment skin.
Standard Microdermabrasion: 50 minutes
This is a strong Microdermabrasion and may feel very different than abrasion treatments you have experienced in the past. Microdermabrasion’s performed at Kenlee’s Skin Shop are all-encompassing, full facial treatments, and not quick 30 min procedures. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and receive 2 prep solutions, one of which is a special peel solution that allows the microderm to reach the deeper layers. After the Microdermabrasion portion is complete, the treatment continues with a customized Enzyme solution, followed by a calming cold mask application – feels amazing!
Our Standard Microdermabrasion is most often used as a resurfacing tool for the skin and is a great companion treatment when cycled with our peels. You may experience a slight increase in the sensitivity and redness of the skin on the day of the service, but this a no downtime procedure and our clients love how they look and feel afterwards. This treatment can be done weekly for up to six weeks, monthly for maintenance, or in conjunction with other services as part of a comprehensive skin treatment plan.
Clinical Strength Microdermabrasion: 50 – 60 minutes
A clinical Microdermabrasion will cause downtime and is only appropriate for individuals with specific skin issues and severe scarring. It requires a high operator skill level and a very steady hand – good thing we are well equipped with both! This level of treatment cannot be scheduled without Kenlee’s permission.
Micro/Peel Combo Treatment: 50 – 60 minutes
The best of both worlds! A full face Microdermabrasion is performed then we immediately perform a Light to Mid Chemical Peel. It is a perfect option for clients who cannot make it in regularly for help with their skin maintenance (such as our out of state or 2 hour drive time clients) and are in need of the most possible in one visit. It is also an absolute must for pregnant/nursing clients who want (and usually need) to do stronger treatments. The Micro/Peel Combo is truly great for any skin type but clients should know there will be brief periods of discomfort during the treatment application and they will have some downtime.
Prego Note: It can often be a struggle to keep hormonal skin issues under control, but unfortunately when pregnant/nursing clients are unable to use our stronger peel solutions. Combining our pregnancy safe peels with a microdermabrasion is Kenlee’s method for treating our beautiful new mothers’ faces in a deep but safe way.
Kenlee’s Tip: This is even more powerful when paired with a Standard Microdermabrasion 3-4 weeks later!
Chest Microdermabrasion: 30 – 45 minutes
Treatment is over the décolleté region and is similar to our Microdermabrasion treatment for the face (cold mask excluded). We microderm the entire chest area twice to be as effective as possible on this unique area of skin. It’s a great stand-alone treatment and is even better when combined with our chest peels for a complete skin makeover on the chest.
