The beauty of combining crystal microdermabrasion and microcurrent treatments into one is a result-orientated facial with an inside-out attack on sagging and lackluster skin.

Crystal microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma and other skin-related concerns and conditions. The treatment uses a special technique spraying fine particles of crystals with suction applicator to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it.
Microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure for most skin types and colors. People might choose to get the procedure if they have the following skin concerns:
- fine lines and wrinkles
- hyperpigmentation, age spots and brown spots
- enlarged pores and blackheads
- acne and acne scars
- stretch marks
- dull-looking skin complexion
- uneven skin tone and texture
- sun damage
Microcurrent treatment involves giving gentle electrical impulses to the skin and muscles to stimulate healing, regenerate skin tissue and boosting lymphatic flow. The use of this low-voltage electricity stimulates muscle, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) cell growth and collagen development in the dermis on the face.
We have two microcurrent options at Sundara Sanctuary using rods or pads in the facial utilizing positive and negative poles of current isolating facial muscle groups for the best results in the quad cities.
Microcurrent is considered a safe procedure for most skin types and colors. People might choose to get the procedure if they have the following skin concerns:
- sagging skin
- wrinkles and fine lines
- wanting better blood circulation
- untoned skin texture
- loss of collagen
- weak facial muscles
Combining these two facial treatments in one facial is considered the fountain of youth! With any age management, treatment it is not a onetime miracle. Just like exercising, it needs a maintenance program to achieve the desired results.
