About the procedure

The outer portion of the skin (epidermis) is composed of multiple layers of epidermal cells. These cells provide a barrier against the environment, protecting deeper, more delicate tissues, maintain an even internal temperature and prevent dehydration.

Epidermal cells are anchored together in two ways: microscopic fibers called tonofilaments run between individual cells, helping anchor them together and an extracellular substance that surrounds each cell, acting as a sort of “glue” to further keep things together. Over time, these cells are invisibly shed through the body’s natural means of exfoliation.

Speeding this process up can instantly restore a more youthful glow to the skin and address other subtle signs of the aging process.

The procedure consists of three stages:

  1. Vibradermabrasion: breaks the tonofilaments.
  2. Deep Chemical Peel: dissolves the “glue”.
  3. IPL Skin Rejuvenation: penetrates deep into the epidermis, boosting collagen reproduction and in turn providing a faster, healthier and complete healing of the recovering new skin.
