Microdermabrasion is a simple and effective form of exfoliation. It is considered a mechanical or physical exfoliation using crystals to remove the outer layer of dead or damaged skin cells revealing a more youthful skin. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment designed to improve the overall texture, tone and clarity of the skin while restoring the skin’s elasticity.
This type of exfoliation is performed by gently blasting the skin with a high pressure flow of ultra-fine diamonds designed to remove the outer most layers of the skin followed with a vacuum suction action that removes the crystals. While the crystals are performing the exfoliation, the vacuum suction action taking place is equally important because it is stimulating the lower layers of the skin combining skin exfoliation with regenerating suction; this unique system stimulates sub dermal activities that “renew” the anti-aging mechanisms of the skin that slow with age. We recommend a course of treatments as results are cumulative and improve with each treatment.
All skin types and skin colours can benefit from treatments. Aging, congested, flaky, dry, devitalized, thickened, blemished, dull and sun damaged skin will be rejuvenated and refreshed. Blotchiness, uneven skin tones and texture will be improved. Microdermabrasion will reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, chicken pox scars, brown/age spots, fine-lined wrinkles, large pores, and other skin imperfections.

The effects are immediate and you will see further improvements over the following days as the new fresh layer of skin is exposed. To maximise effects we recommend a course of treatments.
Medications, prescription drugs and alcohol should not be consumed on the day of treatment. Do not use glycolic, AHA’s or retinol products 48 hours before treatment. It is important to check with your therapist about your medications and be honest.

Clients may experience some slight discomfort at the initial stage of the treatment. This is dependent on the sensitivity of your skin.
Avoid swimming, sun exposure, sunbeds and heat treatments for 1 week after your treatment. Avoid perfumes/aftershaves for 48 hours.
Possible side effects are tightness, slight redness, and tender to the touch. These effects happen rarely and are usually very mild. They do subside within a few days.
