Because there is no acid or thermal effect, hypo-pigmentation and hyperpigmentation are non issues with Particle Skin ResurfacingSM. In addition, there is minimal risk with this proven procedure.
Is the treatment effective for acne?
Yes, but we do recommend that you schedule a consultation for a pre-screening evaluation. During your consultation, you may request a sample of the Particle Skin ResurfacingSM treatment on your hand to verify its effectiveness and painlessness. Many clients have experienced significant benefits.
