MDA is a safe, controlled system of intense exfoliation and resurfacing that rejuvenates the skin. It works as a gentle abrasive on the skin to remove dead skin cells layer by layer. The treatment is progressive meaning clients will continue to see results over the course of treatment.
Anyone can benefit from this treatment. It improves the overall appearance of the skin giving skin a healthy glow and youthful appearance. Microdermabrasion is also extremely effective at treating a number of skin problems. It can be used on the face and body making it a good treatment for acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles.
