What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a deeply effective treatment for renewing a fresh, young-looking glow to your skin. The microdermabrasion technique uses microcrystals, which are hard enough to disrupt unwanted tired skin cells that cause dull looking skin but small enough not to do any damage or cause pain. Microdermabrasion treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, superficial blemishes and marks, improve congested skin, mild pigmentation problems and generally become part of an anti-ageing treatment routine. 

How does microdermabrasion work?

The technique involves propelling the microcrystals across the skin’s surface, removing only the top layer of skin cells. This technology reveals new cells creating a healthy glow. The epidermal layers of the skin are rejuvenated leading to collagen production and plumper skin. 
Microdermabrasion is a progressive procedure. After the first session, your skin will feel softer and you may see a very subtle improvement. To gain visible improvement we generally recommend a course of sessions because additional treatments cause an increase in circulation within the dermis and newer, healthier skin cells are produced.

Does microdermabrasion hurt?

One of the benefits of microdermabrasion is that it’s virtually pain-free. You will feel a subtle suction as the vacuum is placed over the skin and perhaps a tingling sensation. Your skin may look slightly pink after the treatment but this will subside within a few hours. The crystals used are hard enough to disrupt tired skin cells that cause dull-looking skin, but small enough not to do any damage or cause discomfort or pain.

With a microdermabrasion facial, no artificial or even natural substances are injected, plus it also works in harmony with your body. Once the treatment has removed dead and tired cells, your body will work to replace them with fresh, healthier looking skin.

Microdermabrasion is a comfortable and painless procedure; the smooth microcrystals we use don’t cause any unpleasant sensations.

What happens after microdermabrasion?

You can return to your normal routine straight after your microdermabrasion and can even reapply your make-up right away. The only real side effect is a possible temporary redness of the skin, which soon fades. Other existing medical conditions should be highlighted during your consultation and advice will be given on an individual basis.

What kind of results can I expect from microdermabrasion?

You will notice an improvement in your overall complexion from your first treatment. Microdermabrasion helps to stimulate collagen and remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Your skin will look and feel smoother immediately after treatment, with results lasting for weeks. For best results, a course of treatments is advised. 

Is Microdermabrasion right for me?

Microdermabrasion isn’t suitable for darker skin tones as they are more prone to pigmentation.  If you have lighter skin and want a fresher, clearer, brighter look, microdermabrasion is for you.
