Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion Training

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation treatment for rejuvenating the skin without the need for surgical facelifts. The treatment removes the upper layers of damaged and dying skin cells, which tend to give skin an overall dull appearance and betray signs of sun damage. During this procedure, the top layer of the epidermis is removed. Dead skin cells are subsequently vacuumed up, revealing healthy skin. The whole procedure is quick and painless, generally taking 30-45 minutes, depending on the condition of the skin. This treatment can be used to target specific problems like dark spots on face, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation induced by pregnancy.

The recovery from this procedure is relatively quick. Recipients may notice some redness and tenderness after the procedure, but they will not need to make special plans for recovery and can typically attend social events afterwards. However, sun sensitivity will increase after microdermabrasion, which makes it important to wear a strong sunscreen.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive a certificate. This course is approved by the State Education Department of New York.
