What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a safe, non-invasive treatment that has been branded the ‘half an hour face lift’ and is hailed as one of the best solutions for troublesome skin by celebrities and clinicians.

The procedure uses a stream of non-allergenic crystals to remove the skin’s outermost layer of dead cells. The crystals are directed over the treatment area and can be targeted at specific zones where needed. The handset then uses a mild suction to draw away the crystal and skin debris to unveil your improved, glowing complexion.

The Benefits Of Microdermabrasion

Loved by celebrities and clinicians alike, microdermabrasion has a whole host of benefits that has resulted in it being termed the 30 minute facial.

Thanks to its dual action of abrasion and suction, microdermabrasion helps to resurface the skin and stimulate blood flow. In turn, this encourages the skin to rejuvenate itself and produce collagen and elastin to result in an overall clearer, younger complexion with a natural glow. By focusing on problem areas, microdermabrasion also helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, open pores and pigmentation to make way for all round clearer, more radiant skin.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

As a a progressive, rather than aggressive treatment, Microdermabrasion is a safe, pain-free treatment with no downtime.

There are four simple steps involved in our Microdermabrasion facial.

Our fully trained and certified therapist will conduct an initial consultation before treatment. Essentially, this evaluates your individual needs and ensures that your treatment plan will achieve the results you require.

Next, we cleanse the skin to ensure that your skin is clean and dry before treatment. This ensures that the treatment can penetrate the skin and achieve the best results.

The procedure itself is pain free and non invasive. A want delivers a fine jet of abrasive crystals over the skin. These particles are abraded away and a light suction removes any remnants. The therapist can then target problems areas such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, open pores or pigmentation.

After treatment, we offer a replenishing facial using natural skincare that is catered to your skin’s needs. This helps to replenish moisture after treatment and achieve glowing, smooth skin.

As Microdermabrasion has little downtime as is a progressive rather than an aggressive treatment, it is suitable for the majority of clients.
