This safe, simple 30 minute exfoliating treatment will leave your skin softer, smoother, and more radiant with improved tone and texture.
Why do I need microdermabrasion?
Our skin has a natural skin cell renewal cycle of approximately 30 days. As the skin renews, dead skin cells “build up” and thicken the Stratum Corneum (the outer most layer of the skin), resulting in a dull lifeless complexion. Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates this build up of dead skin cells, to reveal younger, smoother and softer skin.
How does microdemabrasion work?
A fine stream of particles from the applicator pen, combined with a vacuum is traced over the skin, mechanically removing the dead skin cell layers. The whole face and neck are usually treated; however, particular attention is paid to the client’s specific areas of concern.
How does the treatment feel?
Treatments are not uncomfortable, consisting of a slight tingling sensation, not unlike a mild sand paper rubbing against the skin. A flushed, mild wind burn sensation is experienced for a short time after the treatment.
What are the immediate results?
The skin will appear softer, appear brighter and more uniform in colour. In addition, a special lifting technique can be carried out to plump and firm the skin.
Are there any side effects?
It is not uncommon for the skin to be red for a couple of hours after treatment. The skin may also be slightly dry and flaky for several days post treatment as the renewal occurs.
Am I suitable for treatment?
Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types. It is the perfect solution for enlarged pores, acne prone skin and also improves superficial pigmentation and stimulates lymphatic drainage to remove toxins.
How many treatments are necessary?
For problematic skin, an initial course of six to twelve treatments at fortnightly intervals is recommended. However, as the skin is constantly renewing itself, and as microdermabrasion is a progressive treatment, most clients will return on a regular basis to keep their skin looking its best.
What aftercare is needed?
Daily application of sunscreen is required, but otherwise you can return immediately to normal activities.
