What is Sapphire Abrasion?

Our epidermis is the outermost layer of our skin. It can suffer immensely after a long dry winter leaving the skin dehydrated which in turn can leave the epidermis with the appearance of superficial fine lines & wrinkles. One very effective way to rid of those nasty lines amongst treating other conditions is Sapphire Abrasion. This is the newest method of exfoliating the skin with microdermabrasion. Sapphire granules cover one side of its unique tip, while the other side is designed to massage and drain lymph. It also stimulates fibroblastic activity, which aids in the tissue repair process. Fibroblasts are present in connective tissue and are capable of forming collagen fibers. The sapphire abrasion is crystal and suction free and uses ultrasonic vibrations to painlessly ablate the outermost layers of the skin. This treatment is non-invasive and is ideal for anyone who has had  reaction to traditional vacuum like microdermabrasion or sensitive skin. The best way to finish this treatment is with some cold light therapy or out Lumifacial!
