Microdermabrasion is the most effective way to shed old dermal tissue for refined softer skin.  A diamond tip wand is used to slough away dead skin cells.  Now the pores are cleared, open and ready to absorb the abundance of nourishment from the serum with ease.  Next, microccurent directs very mild electric currents to the jawline and brows for a visibly defined contours that roll back the clock on aging.
