FUSE, which provides spa services at AL!VE, is pleased to now offer microdermabrasion on its menu of services.
Microdermabrasion treats common skin impurities like fine lines, sun-damaged or dull skin, age spots, acne, enlarged pores and uneven skin texture.
FUSE uses DermaSweep for its microdermabrasion. Unlike other techniques, which use aluminum-oxide crystals that can be irritating, DermaSweep uses a variable-level vacuum that gently lifts as it sweeps away dead skin. The process provides a less irritating exfoliation, resulting in a cleaner, more effective treatment.
