Microdermabrasion is non-invasive and skin resurfacing facial procedure that uses manual exfoliation to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells. This process works in series to achieve the best results. We use a Diamond tipped wand to abrade the surface of your skin.
WHAT BENEFITS CAN I HAVE FROM MICRODERMABRASION TREATMENTS?
Our skin renews itself every 28 days, sloughing off old dead skin cells and replacing them with fresh new cells. This is called desquamation.
When we manually remove skin cells it is called exfoliation.
MDA speeds up cell renewal. Revealing new, fresh skin and gives a radiant glow. Stimulates collagen growth and fibroblasts in the skin. It provides firming and toning to the complexion.
Helps to: Reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles, remove acne scars, minimize the size of the pores, reduce sun damage, clear up blackheads.
WHY MICRODERMABRASION IS GOOD FOR ACNE SCARRING?
By removing the top layer of the skin, professional microdermabrasion diminishes or even removes superficial acne scarring. Deeper acne scarring require a more invasive procedure, like a deep chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED TO SEE RESULTS?
You can see some results from day 1, these include fewer comedones (blackheads), smoother, softer skin, revitalizes tired skin and enhances make-up application.
However, if you are looking for longer-term benefits e.g. fine wrinkles reduction, deeper cleanse or acne reduction, you will need 6-8 treatments, carried out every 7-10 days to get the best results. This depends on the reaction to the skin after.
To maintain, we would recommend once a month of treatment.
ARE THERE ANY DOWNTIME AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Skin will shed and may experience redness and sloughing/peeling. The skin may also feel sensitive and be sensitive to the sun immediately after treatment. This is why a minimum SPF 30 will need to be applied.
Rarely happens, but minor bruising might occur.
