Microdermabrasion

What is Micro-Dermabrasion
Micro-dermabrasion is a progressive, non-invasive treatment that propels natural mineral crystals onto the surface of the skin for gentle epidermal abrasion that reveals newer, healthier, younger skin.
MICRO CONTROLLED PEELING gently removes epidermal cells to treat a vast range of skin imperfections. It is especially effective for skin ageing. The powerful peeling action triggers the skin’s repair mechanism to produce healthy epidermal tissue growth, improving skin tone and elasticity.

Which skin problems can be treated?

This system gradually abrades epidermal cells to treat a vast range of skin problems:

  • sun-damaged skin
  • uneven and granular skin
  • fine lines and wrinkles
  • enlarged pores
  • blackheads and comedones
  • superficial scars
  • some stretch marks

How long does it take?

Each treatment takes 30 to 45 minutes. When combined with other anti-ageing treatments, it takes 45 minutes to 1.5 hour.

How many treatments will I need?

Age and skin condition determine the number of treatments required to achieve optimum effect. For most skin disorders, a minimum of six treatments is recommended. Results can be seen in both the texture and the appearance of the skin after just one session. Closely spaced treatments, combined with maintenance sessions, will result in better skin quality and may postpone the first lifting treatments for some years.

Can Micro Controlled Peeling be used on the body? 

There are virtually no areas of the body that would not benefit from micro-dermabrasion. When used in the exfoliation mode, it can be performed on the entire body, face, neck, and neckline, with a second sweep on any areas of hyperpigmentation or with textural irregularities. It can even be performed on the hands.

Skin Care

Skin care: 5 tips for healthy skin
Good skin care — including sun protection and gentle cleansing — can keep your skin healthy and glowing for years to come.

1. Protect yourself from the sun
One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems — as well as increase the risk of skin cancer.

2. Don't smoke
Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin, which decreases blood flow. This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important to skin health.

3. Treat your skin gently
Daily cleansing and shaving can take a toll on your skin.

4. Eat a healthy diet
A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins.

5. Manage stress
Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin — and a healthy state of mind — take steps to manage your stress.

They Say About Us

I have been to many salons looking for the right Hairstylist doing endless searching on the internet for reviews on the best salons only to come up short.  I have had my hair colored and cut by other salons and was disappointed in one way or another.  My hair seams to take on a life of its own and each stylist I went to only made my hair look worse.   I heard a few people say that the AB Creative Salon was wonderful and made their hair feel soft and smooth.
