To complement your medical treatment program, the Skin Center of South Miami emphasizes the importance of supportive therapeutic, aesthetic and skin wellness treatments.

Services include:

Microdermabrasion is a form of skin exfoliation using crystals of aluminum oxide to physically remove the dry, flaky layer of dead skin cells on the skin surface.  By removing dead skin cells that build up on the surface and in pores, this treatment is effective for a variety of skin conditions.   Microdermabrasion can target clogged pores in acne and acne-prone skin to promote clearing of acne breakouts.  By peeling off superficial layers of skin overlying blotchy patches, skin discoloration and uneven complexions can be improved.  Similarly, rough or sun damaged skin can be treated resulting in a smoother texture and freshened appearance.  Another benefit of microdermabrasion is its ability to remove dead cell buildup that can prevent prescription creams from readily penetrating the skin surface.  By exposing the underlying normal skin, microdermabrasion treatment can help medications to be absorbed more easily and to deeper levels where they can be20more effective.  This is especially important in conditions such as acne and discoloration which are commonly treated with topically applied medicines.  .    Although this treatment very safe for most skin types, patients with sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea may require more gentle treatment parameters than patients with normal, less sensitive skin.

This 2 in 1 treatment combines exfoliation with facial pore extractions. First a light microdermabrasion treatment removes dead skin cells to soften and expose pores. Then a deep pore cleansing leaves the skin clean and fresh. Finish off with a soothing mask. Recommended monthly to maintain a healthy, clear complexion.

Acne Control Facial
Recommended as part of your acne control program, a clear, healthy complexion is emphasized. This therapeutic facial combines exfoliation and deep pore cleansing to prevent and heal acne breakouts. A purifying mask calms and soothes skin irritation to leave your skin feeling fresh and renewed.

Rosacea Control Facial
This therapeutic treatment is recommended for control of rosacea prone skin. A three layered facial evolves into a soothing mask to reduce the irritation and sensitivity caused by rosacea. Recommended monthly.

European Facial
After a thorough cleansing, pores are softened and opened using a bath of warm steam. Deep extraction of the conditioned pores removes debris and dead skin build-up. The skin is then toned and hydrated to leave the face fresh and clean. Recommended monthly.
