Frequently asked questions about the Sapphire 3® Photo Abrasion treatment
The Sapphire 3® Photo Abrasion treatment is a new, cutting-edge skin resurfacing treatment that can help improve the overall appearance of your skin. This treatment uses a combination of sapphire granules, red monochromatic light therapy, and blue LED lights to exfoliate the top layer of your skin, revealing smoother, healthier skin underneath. The Sapphire 3® Photo Abrasion treatment also helps to stimulate collagen production, which can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment is safe for all skin types and can be performed in just one session.
How does the Sapphire 3® Photo Abrasion treatment work?
Combining a variety of treatments in one device is how this procedure works best at rejuvenating the skin's appearance and health. Relaxing massage and lymphatic drainage are performed alongside exfoliation using actual sapphires, collagen stimulation with red monochromatic light energy, and the promotion of healthy new skin cells with blue LED light treatments combined in a single treatment.
What are the benefits of the Sapphire 3® Photo Abrasion treatment?
The Sapphire 3® Photo Abrasion treatment can help improve the overall appearance of your skin, including reducing the look of unwanted wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment can also help to stimulate collagen production, which improves the elasticity of your skin.
What should I expect during the Sapphire 3® Photo Abrasion treatment?
You will first have a consultation with our experienced aesthetician to discuss your goals for treatment and determine if this is the most appropriate treatment for you.

You might experience some mild effects such as redness or swelling after the treatment, but this will typically resolve within a few hours.
