Microdermabrasion is a modern, pain free, mechanical exfoliation technique designed to improve and rejuvenate the skin without the use of lasers or chemical peels.
It was been used for over 20 years with great success, to treat:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Acne prone skin
Sun damaged skin
Oily and patchy skin
How does it work?
Microdermabrasion is performed by exfoliating the skin using a handset that delivers a controlled flow of very fine, high grade crystals – these are vacuumed away at the same time, taking with them any dead skin cells and impurities. This process leaves behind softer and smoother skin, while also stimulating the cell renewal process. Although the action of the hand piece is gentle, the exfoliation also stimulates the epidermis into the production of collagen, which slows down the effects of aging.
Who is it suitable for?
Microdermabrasion is extremely versatile and can be used on any skin type, on men and women both young and old.
It is particularly effective when used in conjunction with other treatments (such as Medical Strength Exfoliating Peels) and the results are instant.
How many treatments do I require?
Your qualified practitioner will devise a tailor-made plan of care for you, but most skin conditions require between 6 to 10 sessions, spaced approximately 14 days apart. After a course is completed, a single monthly treatment will maintain your skin's improvements?
When will I see results?
You will start to see results after the first treatment, and your skin will be in better condition to absorb anti-aging and treatment creams.
How long does it take?
Your qualified practitioner will discuss your treatment plan at your consultation, but the procedure usually takes approximately 30 minutes, depending on the area to be treated.
Is there any recovery time?
No, most patients carry on with their daily routine straight after their treatment. Occasionally some patients may develop mild redness, but this usually resolves after 24 hours. Your qualified practitioner will advise you on post-treatment care.
