If you run your hands over your face, does your skin feel soft and smooth or like sand paper? The surface layer of skin may be clogged with damaged skin cells that can make your complexion dull and uneven. At Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa in Fleming Island, FL, we offer cosmetic services like noninvasive skin resurfacing with microdermabrasion. Effective and fast, microdermabrasion treatments remove the upper layer of dead skin so your complexion is brighter and healthier. Microdermabrasion can be used alone or with another skin treatment, like a dermal filler or chemical peel, for more dramatic improvements. At your consultation, we will develop a custom treatment plan based on your concerns and goals.
"I was interested in a new procedure called Renuvian and Dr.Wallace was 1 if the only 2 doctors in the area who does it. I consulted with both of them. I chose Dr. Wallace not just because he has more experience doing it but also becouse he was so thorough during his consultation. I actually ended up having 3 consultations becouse I had new questions arise. I offered to pay for additional consultation & his office declined and he took just as much time w/ me on my final consult as he did on my first. I did do the Renuvian procedure w/ Dr.Wallace. The procedure itself wasn't very painful. The most painful aspect is probably looking at yourself in the mirror for awhile, lol since it's a skin resurfacing procedure. But I was prepared for that since Dr.Wallace was very candid about what to expect. My healing process has taken longer(prolonged redness) so I have been frustrated at times. Dr.Wallace & his entire staff, especially Stacy have been very supportive & understanding. I truly appreciate their post procedure care. They did everything possible to get my healing process moving along. Dr. Wallace even sent me over to the Pura Vida Spa to meet with Amanda the esthetician there. She made recommendations for my skin ( including products) that have made a tremendous difference. I am 4 most post procedure and am excited about my results. The lifting & tightening, especially around my eyes is exactly what I was hoping for. Dr. Wallace awesome and really cares about his patients!!"- B.D. / Yelp / Aug 08, 2018

Microdermabrasion can reduce the visibility of surface skin blemishes such as fine lines, dull skin tone, uneven skin texture, sun damage, clogged pores, and scars. It is is appropriate for men and women of all skin tones and types that want healthier, clearer skin. Microdermabrasion is typically performed on the face; however, it can also be performed on your neck, chest, and hands. This procedure should not be performed on skin that has an open wound or if you have a chronic condition, like acne or rosacea.
Microdermabrasion treatments are done in our spa after a thorough consultation to determine what services will lead to your best results. For the treatment, you will sit back in a special chair as your skin is prepared and cleaned. The special handpiece will be passed along your skin as it both polishes and vacuums the dead skin and crystals. While the treatment feels rough on the skin, it is not usually painful, so you should not need a numbing cream or local anesthesia. The microdermabrasion will be applied evenly over the selected areas, with more care in delicate areas like around the eyes. After the treatment is done, the skin will be lightly cleansed to get rid of any leftover debris before a protective moisturizer, selected for your skin type with sunscreen, is applied.
What to Expect
After a treatment, you can continue your normal day as long as you wear sunscreen or another form of sun protection regularly since your skin will be sensitive. Your skin should feel smoother and your skin tone will be more even. To keep the results of your treatment, we recommend having these procedures every 4 – 6 weeks. Most Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa patients notice that after microdermabrasion, their skincare products (especially creams and lotions) absorb more easily into their skin for better results.
