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.

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.
