For longer-lasting and more significant changes, microdermabrasion can remove signs of dead skin cells from your face, leaving you renewed and beautiful in your skin.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion works with minimally abrasive instruments to exfoliate the upper layers of skin. As a type of skin rejuvenation, it’s considered an effective, non-surgical way of addressing common skin issues such as large pores, acne scarring, wrinkles, and fine lines. The procedure is similar to dermaplaning, but instead of a flat, knife-like instrument to scrape away dead skin, it uses a crystal or diamond-tipped wand to polish and sand away the dead skin and then suction it away using a wand vacuum.

So, what’s so unique about microdermabrasion? Our newest microdermabrasion treatment is a superior method of removing dead skin cells because of the following benefits:

  • Gentle, Enhanced Results: The crystals used in the microdermabrasion device abrade the skin provide a gentle approach to polishing and can be adjusted according to your skin sensitivity and needs.
  • Softer, Painless Treatment: The crystal tips don’t cause heat or inflammation on the skin, meaning patients with sensitive skin types and pain levels can experience its benefits without worry.
  • No Downtime: Microdermabrasion has no downside, meaning patients can easily head back to their normal activities. In return, patients get brightened, glowing skin that’s fresh and practically brand new.
  • Collagen Production: Collagen is an essential protein used to help maintain our skin’s elasticity and youthfulness, and we lose it as we age. Microdermabrasion helps thicken the collagen in your skin, enhancing the effects of your skin’s elasticity and resulting in a younger-looking appearance.

Thanks to its crystal-powered technology, microdermabrasion can provide massive benefits to the skin, including improved tone and texture, softening fine lines and wrinkles, fighting off the effects of sun damage, and lightening signs of hyperpigmentation.

However, microdermabrasion isn’t for everyone, as it isn’t recommended for those with inflammatory acne, cystic acne, severe acne scars, or keloid scars. It also cannot treat deep lines and wrinkles, as it only works to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The treatment is painless and lasts around 30 minutes, and most patients see visible results after their first treatment. However, more extensive results can be seen within eight sessions, spaced a few weeks apart, to maintain your appearance.

Medical spas, also known as medspa, medi-spas, and med spa, blend the best of two worlds — a relaxing spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor’s office. A doctor oversees the medical spa and is in charge of procedures that fall under the medical realm.

Meet our team at Smile-Chic, the premier med spa! We’ll be happy to show you what makes us an excellent choice for all of your treatment needs.

Medical esthetic treatments go far beyond the mud baths, fruit peels, and therapeutic massages found at most day spas. Treatments at many medical spas and health clinic offices are more intense and offer more noticeable results.

Esthetic medicine includes all procedures in esthetics, except surgical procedures requiring an operating table and general anesthesia. Medical grade esthetic procedures include dermal fillers, permanent hair reduction, acne treatments, chemical peels, hydrafacials and many more.

To make an appointment at Smile-Chic, please use our online scheduling system or contact us directly by calling 361-356-1116.

We also recommend that you schedule future appointments in advance to ensure your preferred time is available, as nights and Saturdays are the most requested times.

All booked appointments will be confirmed by our staff via a telephone call or text reminder or email a day or two before your appointment. Please provide us with a valid email address. Scheduling an appointment is your acceptance of these policies.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to prepare for your treatment. As we are a medical spa, we require new patients to fill out a brief medical history information and consent form.

If you are scheduled for dermal fillers, laser treatments or special peels we recommend you arriving 15 minutes prior to your appointment time so that we can properly prepare you skin for the treatment.

If you have any additional questions or special need, call Smile-Chic, a Corpus Christi Med Spa at (361) 356-1116 and our scheduling consultants can assist you.

Our scheduling is designed to permit the correct amount of time to complete your service. A late arrival will deprive you of precious treatment time. In fairness to others, your treatment must end on time so the next patient’s session can begin on time.

If you are not able to be on time we will do our best to complete as much of your treatment as possible.

With some treatments, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
