Question: Aren’t cosmetic procedures expensive and painful?

Answer: For under $100 many procedures, like microdermabrasion and chemical peels are affordable, comfortable and have a short recovery time. These procedures get rid of those dead skin cells and reveal a healthy layer of skin. Skin will have a smoother appearance and fine lines and wrinkles will be softened up. None of these services will cause you to miss work or keep you in the house for an extended period of time. Some treatments may give you a bit of “social” downtime due to possible redness and peeling but you’ll know well in advance and can plan for that.
